I've Got Two Tickets to Paradise

So this last week was one for the books.  My sweetheart had a conference in Maui and I tagged along.  I know, rough gig right :)  Really had to twist my arm to come along, tee hee hee. 

Each morning, while Jacob was in conference, I told myself I was going to get a ton of computer work done . . . but ya, that is super hard to do with the beach out the door and a good book in your hands.   But I will say, I did get a little done and almost have a new pattern ready to release. (I know, I have been saying that for a month, almost leaves lots of wiggle room ;)

When conference was done at noon, we were off to play!!!   We spent the week enjoying some gorgeous hikes and playing in the waves.  Although one particular wave was a little larger than I like, read spits out tons of salt water.

And of course, there was a lot of serene walks on the beach and so much amazing food.   I really love seafood and I got my fill of it this last week!!!

But mostly, I just enjoyed getting to spend a week with my sweetheart away from all the cares of the world in a little slice of paradise. 

And now, I am happy to be back home with my kiddo's (It's always nice to miss them so much that it makes leaving paradise a little easier :) and ready to get back to life.  

So I'm off to do the laundry, and maybe I will squeeze in finishing that book :)   Gotta ease back into that real life stuff, right ;) 

I hope you all have a very Happy (and maybe even some quilting) Day!!!
Pin It!


  1. Sounds like tons of fun! Glad you were able to get away!

  2. Oh how fun and a perfect time to go.

  3. I think you should just say you're on "island time" for that pattern release. Hope re-entry from paradise treats you kindly.

  4. Life’s tough, Melissa! 😉. Glad you had such a nice get away!

  5. Wonderful for you! It's always good to "tag along" with your sweetie and have some quality time together!

  6. How awesome! Glad you could enjoy a wonderful vacation!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
