In just a few short hours, Scott and I are hopping a flight to the magical island of Maui. I travel a lot. Sometimes more than I’d actually like to. We’ve taken several tropical vacations over the last two years, and this is certainly not our first trip to Hawaii.
But I can honestly say this is the most excited I’ve been to take a vacation in years. Possibly ever.
Maybe it’s because we’ve visited Maui before, so I’m well-aware of the awesomeness awaiting us.
Maybe it’s because my brother and his girlfriend are taking the trip with us.
Maybe it’s because work, life, and everything in between has been insanely busy, and I just need a break.
Maybe it’s because I’ll be able to go ten entire days without wearing a parka and snow boots.
And maybe…just maybe it’s because I’m absolutely dying to wear my new, super stylish turban. (Only after it shipped did I realize it was intended for chemotherapy patients. Whatever.)
Over the next ten days, I’ll be taking a hiatus from the blog. I plan on relaxing with a capital “R”, which means absolutely no typing. (Unless I’m texting a snarky play-by-play of the senior citizen Tai Chi circle at the nude beach to my sister, of course.)
And yes…believe it or not, such a thing does in fact exist.
Naked, wrinkly Tai-Chi aside…I know what you’re thinking.
Will Scott’s love handles magically disappear by 6pm tomorrow evening?
Will Jolie and Penny survive their first Rover stay?
Will my gnarly forehead scab heal in time to take dozens of beach selfies?
Will this be the year Scott finally convinces me to go on the treacherous Commando hike? Or will I listen to TLC and not go chasin’ waterfalls? (Sorry…couldn’t resist that one.)
Will I actually wear my fancy new turban without looking like a fortune-teller/cancer patient/nude beach Tai Chi instructor?
Will we even go to the nude beach with my brother and his girlfriend there? (I literally cringed just typing ‘nude beach’ and ‘my brother’ in the same sentence.)
Answers to all these questions–and more–in approximately ten days.
