make-believe: hawaiian vacation

February 21, 2013
In December, right before Christmas, our friends Simon and Jenny moved to Hawaii. James and I have been dreaming about a getaway to visit them (and soak in the island air) ever since. An email from Simon this week with a link to Hawaiian Airlines fares so low they looked like typographical errors sent us into a virtual frenzy of number crunching and daydreaming. Alas, even the rock-bottom fares weren’t quite low enough to allow for a last minute trip. We’re left staring at the giant surfboard in our apartment and wiping our collective tears. In homage to our Hawaiian daydreams, a make-believe post about our would-be adventure.

*It should be known that James is the real surfer in the “family”(evidence, here). But I’d be totally game for giving the death-defying sport another go…in Hawaii.

    I love that dress! Hawaii is amazing, we used to go a lot when I was a kid, I wish I would have learned to surf there.

    This tea leaf is right up my alley. I want to be on an island so bad. Somehow tropical floral prints start looking so good in late February.

    My husband and I went to Maui last October and it was so much more than we ever dared to dream of. We had to save for quite a while (it took 4 flights, 26 hours and a big bunch of money to get there from the Northern part of Finland) but it was sooo worth it! Now we're dying to go back some day. Yeah, even though as we arrived there we had the scare of our lives, as there was a tsunami alert and the loudest warning sirens you could think of… šŸ™‚

    I hope you'll get to travel there some day!

    Wow! Nice stuff! The mini dress is awesome. I love the swim suits, too. Awesome!

    That's awesome that your friends moved to Hawaii, its a great excuse to go visit when you can! Also you wouldn't have to pay for a place to stay which can be expensive. My family and I love going to Hawaii for vacation. I would have to say our favorite island is Maui because of the great surf spots. This past summer we decided to use Maui vacation rentals so we had more space. I have a big family and I wanted everyone to be comfortable. The house was so nice and right on the beach. However, great post and I hope you have fun in Hawaii.
