This last week has been wonderful, beyond wonderful, in fact. As I have for the last decade, I spent Thanksgiving with my ohana in Hawaii. We've snuggled up for story time, watched the sunset on the beach, stuffed our faces with turkey, and sang at the top of our lungs. It's magical.
We've settled into a little routine. The kiddos head to school, and, while they're there, I work furiously on writing killer content for the latest issue of SCN (check your mailboxes, the Dec issue is shipping now!). After school, we all hang out and make the most of our time together. Getting to walk a half mile to the beach for an ocean sunset is NOT something I get to do every day, especially a day in late November.
This past weekend, we spent the night at the Wailea Beach Resort (thank you Marriott points!) and had a BLAST! Fun in the sun isn't even an accurate description. Ultra fun? What's 10,000 times better than fun? Whatever it is, that's what we had. The kiddos were in LOVE with the newly renovated pools. Let's be honest, even the adults were in love. The dads ditched us to race down the waterslides too many times to count! The quality time, the views, the entire perfect experience, I'm grateful for it all!
What I'm getting at here (besides all my humble brags), is that I'm REALLY happy with my family and REALLY blessed to have this life. So, in the words of my new friend John "Gucci" Foley, glad to be here.
