{TRAVEL} A Week Away In Kihei (Sans Kids)

A week in Kihei, Maui. Without kids.

It sounds like an unattainable fantasy, but it happened, and it was fantastic.

It had been 5 years since our last adults-only trip, and to be honest, I didn’t think we would ever do one again, especially with 3 young children.

When we were offered the last-minute opportunity to stay with my husband’s friend at his place in Maui, I hesitated at first. I was worried about leaving the children, missing work, and abandoning our everyday routines for a frivolous mid-Winter getaway. But I also needed a break.

I’m very fortunate to have the best parents in the world. When they heard about the trip, they jumped at the chance to spend extra time with their grandkids and urged us to accept. So off we went for a week in Kihei, where we filled our days with lazing on the beach…

And noshing on fresh fish tacos and sipping on cold bevies throughout the day.

Next time we’ll bring the kids, but enjoying a little adult time together was just what we needed to reset and reconnect.

The week in paradise flew by (as vacations always do), and now it’s back to reality, sun-kissed, well-rested, and ready for the rainy days ahead.
