Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 😀
Today marks our last day here on Maui, and I really don’t want to leave but I’m also ready to go back home… if that makes sense. I miss having a routine and feeling productive, but we’ve seen so many amazing things here that it’s going to be hard to say goodbye. Waterfalls. Rainforests. Crashing waves. Brilliantly clear starlight skies. Sunrises at 10,000 feet. Sunsets on the beach. Breaching humpback whales. TURTLES!!
Omigosh YES. I can now go home happy and satisfied… especially since I even managed to score a tan in the process. But Maui has seriously been wonderful, and I really [really] hope I can visit again someday.
I’ll talk more about my trip when I get back, though, because right now it’s time for some link love! I should be back to blogging regularly this week, so I’ll talk to you soon!
For my head…
