7 days to Aloha!


In exactly one week, Husband and I will be in gorgeous Hawaii for a 10-day trip.

Now, before you start thinking that this is a vacation, let me clarify that we have important business there. Our friends invited us to be the godparents for their son’s baptism. (Clearly we have fooled them in thinking that we are responsible enough for such an honor.) So, we are going to Hawaii in the name of godparenthood.

While we are there, we might happen to relax on the beach, plunge into the waves, sip Mai Tai’s, search for Magnum, P.I (ok, maybe that’s just me), try to swim with dolphins, eat pineapple, and go to a luau. But, we are willing to make such sacrifices to be part of this important spiritual milestone for our soon-to-be godson.

I know what you’re about to ask. And the answer is yes. We would love to be your child’s godparents as well. Especially if you happen to live in Hawaii, Fiji, or some other island paradise.

Well you'll be leaving right around the time I'll be getting back from my sunny vacation. I think we all need a vacation especially when it's pouring rain outside.

Congratulations on becoming a godmother-- that's exciting! And oh, Hawai'i that sounds like an amazing time! You'll have to enjoy the sun, the beach, and the Mai Tai's a little for those of us that are bound to the mainland.

All in the name of godparenthood, of course :)

How Fun! You are going to love Hawaii! Bring your running shoes and you can run in the Wahiawa Pineapple 6k run with me on May 10th.... You don't have to run with me. In fact I'll kind of huff and puff and you can run!
