Happy Sunday, friendly faces! And hello, hello from the beach!
Well, technically hello from bed after a long day at the beach, but you get the idea. It’s been 1.5 days so far, and Maui has been ah.maze.ing. I don’t want to speak too soon, but I think it’s my favourite of the Hawaiian islands that I’ve visited so far… and we haven’t even left our resort! I’m looking forward to seeing more of what the island has to offer, including the famous road to Hana and the sunrise at the Haleakala crater, but for now the sun and waves have been plenty.
I hope you guys are having an amazing weekend as well, and I hope you’ll find some enjoyable reads in this week’s edition of Link Love. Talk to you again soon! 😀

Hey, Amanda! I don’t know if you remember me, but I used to run the blog lovenataliemarie! I wanted to try out something new, and I was wondering if you could check out my blog? 🙂
I’m now getting back into the swing of blogging, and I’m loving it! I’m also excited to catch up on your blog again!
I hope you’re having a fantastic day! <3
Brandi @ Java & Sole
Wow – Maui looks amazing! Have a wonderful time soaking up the sunshine :). Yesterday and today have both been spent running, celebrating and preparing for my kids to be home for spring break!
Shashi at RunninSrilankan
Oh goodness you are in paradise!!!!

Sabrina @ Nutritiously Sweet

Autumn (@Beautifully Gray)
Oh I am sooo jealous! Have a fantastic vacation though!
Becky @ Olives n Wine
Ahhhh, Hawaii. It looks so peaceful! I hope you’re enjoying your vacay – Thanks for giving us some good links to read on your time off 🙂
Sam @ Better With Sprinkles
Glad to hear that you’re having a great trip so far love! Currently, it’s snowing outside. So that’s what you’re missing.
Yesterday: worked, went to Bodypump, walked the dog.
Today: 4 mile treadmill run because I refuse to run outside when it’s cold enough to snow, groceries, food prep/making lunch for for the week.
Alyssa @ RenaissanceRunnerGirl
Yesterday was pretty lazy – I spent an afternoon at the Met with my BFF, looking at our favorite Impressionist paintings, complaining about my unlucky-in-dating couple of months and her hubby’s dislike of her shoe-shopping habit! Boys – they don’t get it.
But today – today I ran the NYC Half Marathon! And then I ate. All the food. Only two things… Later I’ll be eating more of the food? 🙂
Ashley @ A Lady Goes West
Enjoy every minute if your beach vacation! You deserve it! 🙂
Keep having a blast at the beach, girl!
Oh, beautiful pics!
Yesterday: recovery run, funeral for a family friend who took his own life, and drinks with my sisters (and tears, and hugs, and huge philosophical discussions)
Today: playing with Callum, another recovery run (my Friday long run was a toughie) and shopping!
While these links are fabulous, I’m more interested in the Hawaii pictures. It looks breathtaking, and I hope you’re having an incredible time and relaxing your socks off.
Those bookmarks make me feel ashamed for mine because yes, same here: usually the receipt from buying the book. At least it’s a good reminder I supported a local bookstore 😉 .
Enjoy your holiday! I’ll head out in a minute trying to find the sun on this rather dull day.
meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles
So glad you are having a great time! I’ll miss our daily chats this week! I will keep a list of things to tell you in case you miss anything important (what’s the likely hood of that? lol)
gahhhhhh I want to be on vacation with you! Maui sounds dreamy! We actually put Hawaii on our list of move locations but think we’re staying in the states, but hopefully somewhere coastal! <3 I miss the beach!
Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness
