When it comes to the best vacation for me, many stand out. I love to vacation and though we don’t get to often, there are always “favorites” while we’re away. The one that really sticks out to me is the trip Dave and I took to Hawaii when I was pregnant with Addie.
I could say a million things about it- why it was amazing, but let’s be honest… it’s Hawaii. The locals treated us like we were old friends, there were rainbows everywhere (for real), we walked for hours to no where in particular, our room was small and we were never really in it, we swam in the ocean, we went to a wedding, we had the best tacos ever… and we were expecting our first baby. So… basically, it was Hawaii. So it rocked.
While we were there, Dave held my hand, and we shared stories. We hiked and took belly photos on cliffs. We were all alone and surrounded at the same time. We spent time at Pearl Harbor and felt the history and pain run its course through us. We took a few tours and found a place we went to for lunch twice because they were so good.
Hawaii was amazing… one of many favorites, for sure. Maybe it was because we were there together, watching my belly grow- almost showing enough for others to know… exploring the island, our relationship and the world around us. We spent hours laughing about where we wanted to live in Oahu, and how much we’d miss our families. Hawaii was an experience like none other for me. I know we hope to get back someday and do everything we missed!
