No comments necessary, I just need to get these out... kind of like an exorcism.
Our friends were stationed in Hawaii while we were in seminary. So what does any highly budgeted, cash-strapped couple do? You realize that free lodging in paradise is reason enough to suck it up for the airfare and you go to Hawaii! It was amazing. We had so much fun from hiking to eating to driving all around every nook and cranny of Oahu and Kauai.
I remember even the air smelled sweet and it seemed like there was a rainbow around every corner.
