So much to reflect on this week.  Back home and back to the grind…even though it took me a sec to get up to speed haha.  Ironic cuz as I was packing FOR the trip to Hawaii I was STILL workin, makin sure all my bases were covered.  I almost felt hesitant to go cuz I’m just SO used to the hustle!  Even at the airport I’m checkin email and responding. But soon as I get on the plane I had no choice but to relax.  So thank goodness for that!

The vacay itself was all that and then some.  Can’t beat being encircled by turquoise waters, listening to the sound of air, baptizing myself in the ocean and feeling surrounded with aloha…it’s the best.  Bay grown but I definitely got that HI love. 

So here goes 80+ pics.  Part deuce of my trip.
