Good Friday!

I’m taking up Roselady’s Good Friday challenge to come up with three things unrelated to diabetes that made for a good week. I’m setting the bar low and jumping in with an easy week – we just got back from first-ever trip to Maui. (If you stop reading here, I understand.)

Narrowing that down to just three things:

1) I’m eternally grateful to our friends for encouraging us to join them on their annual trek! Despite knowing they’d be sharing the house with a toddler, his nanny, and two slightly overwraught parents, they insisted we needed to experience Maui. They were right! For 10 blissful days, we all lived in swim suits and flip flops (our friends here added flowers added for the camera).  Thank you, thank you, Sam-I-Am!

2) Luke’s nanny, Anna, agreed under great duress to come with us 😉 , and she gave us a gift beyond value: 10 nights of sleep. “It’s OK,” she shrugged off my offers to give her a break, “I can nap on the beach or in the pool – it’s all good.” She is a saint – and a sun and surf goddess to boot.

3) Amazing beauty. I really didn’t believe there were beaches like this – thought they were an evil postcard plot to make us fish belly white Seattles envious. I’m still not sure it was real, but it was lovely.

    • Those are our friends, Ryan and Kristn, and they are beautiful inside and out. 🙂
      Your tip about using strips as waterproof containers for candy came in very useful in the surf!
