Hawaii Recap





Gabe relaxing by the pool

Dinner at the Beach House

my virgin lava flow

You'll be seeing a lot of this dress, it's one of the only things that fits me right now.

my belly at 20 weeks


the view from our hotel room
We made it to Michigan and are working on getting organized and settled (pictures to come).  The last few months have been so crazy, I haven't had a chance (or the internet) to upload any of my pictures until now.  So as I upload my pictures, I'll try to catch everyone up on the move and everything else that's going on with us.  I decided to start with our trip to Kauai in July (our last two trips seen here and here).  We had so much to celebrate (Gabe graduating from fellowship and his new job, our 3 year wedding anniversary, and baby moon) and the trip couldn't have been better.  It was so relaxing, beautiful and exactly what we needed.  We came home feeling refreshed and ready for the big move.

So very nice to hear from you Valerie! I know I never responded to your message (I got extremely behind on my inbox, and by the time I caught up, it was so 'after-the-fact' that I felt silly responding.), but I've been thinking about you- every time I see your blog in my reader :).

You guys look so very happy, and you not surprisingly make one gorgeous "pregnant lady" :). xoxo

Hello there Valerie. Saw your comment on Torrie's blog and had to stop by! Did you just love Kauai? We went there on our honeymoon and loved it. Actually we love Hawaii so much we got back every other year! Congrats to Gabe on finishing up his fellowship. It's such a huge accomplishment and a long journey. Good luck with settling into your new place and of course the upcoming arrival of your little one!!! xoxo, Naina
