Maui Wowy!

Instead of gifts for eachother this year for Christmas, Brant and I decided to take a trip.  We both agree whole heartedly that memories and experiences are much more enriching and important than stuff.  Sure he could get me a beautiful sweater or some nice stationary but that only lasts so long.  These memories will last forever.  We saw an incredible deal on one of our favorite travel websites that was way too good to pass up, so quite impulsively, we booked it!  It was amazing.  The sunshine was so good for my soul.  I usually get pretty bad seasonal affective disorder so the break from the cold, grey inversion was welcomed.  I will blog about some of the experiences we had in the coming days, but for now, here are a couple of pictures.

Good for you two! I love that you got to go somewhere warm and sunny in this dreadful winter and that you got to alone as a couple. What awesome parents you have!
