As I get older, I realize that I really love my family. When I come back to Hawaii, it really isn't the kind of resort vacation that most people on the mainland think of when they hear that I'm spending winter break in Hawaii. More than anything, I'm coming home to see my family.
It's funny, but when I come back to Hawaii during winter break I feel really busy, but I can't figure out what I'm busy doing. Over the past two weeks, S/O and I have had a bunch of meals with my mom and sister, a bunch of meals with my brother and sister-in-law, a sleep over with my nieces and nephew, a few dinners out with friends, and a few family days at the beach. No colorful drinks with umbrellas were anywhere to be seen over the course of the vacation. It's not a luxe vacation at a posh beach front resort as much as it is just nice to come home.
Tonight is new year's eve and we fly out on a red-eye tomorrow night.
It's hard to leave …
