A dream came true for me, I got to travel to Hawaii for 8 days with my Boo. He surprised me with a Birthday/Christmas present of a lifetime. Anyone that has a birthday near Christmas knows how the gifts are almost always combined, this one is one I won't be complaining about. Though we were in Hawaii it wasn't paradise all of the time, Brandon arrived sick and remained that way the entire time. I was sick on and off. However we still got to do some amazing things...

Maui is simply breathtaking, magical, and inspirational. I wanted to return the minute we arrived back in freezing Colorado. Everything we did was a first for me and life changing. Thank you so much Brandon for giving me this amazing experience. I love you.
