The Countdown

I am struggling to get everything done so that I can be stress-free in one week, here:


This marks the 10th anniversary of my first trip to Maui. Here are some photos of me, circa 1997:



Despite what you may be thinking, I am in fact 18 in these photos, not 12. I spent a Summer there after high school with an organization called YWAM - we spent three of our weeks in the Philippines working in orphanages and visiting remote islands. This was one of the best experiences of my life, and the girl in the last photo on the right is a friend I still see and keep in touch with.

I used to go about once a year, but its been awhile since I've been back. I'm looking forward to visiting with Forest and getting a much needed start on my Summer tan. Before that we have to do a quick detour to Seattle, so today's my last day at home. Blogging has been sparse, but I think y'all will live...it's just a phase ; )

Have a lovely weekend - I'll try to post in Seattle, but if I don't I'll be back soon! Email me your address and I'll send you a postcard from the tropics.

My one and only trip to Hawaii was to Maui. I fell in love with that place and hope to go back someday soon.
