You may have thought I was gone for good. Nope! I just had my wedding and honeymoon to attend to, but now I’m back and ready to catch you up on the most amazing past week and a half of my lifeeeee!
I have some pictures from the wedding day that friends and family put on my Facebook and our personalized Wedding Party page (it’s an app where people can join your “party” using a certain code and add pictures from the event – highly recommended for future brides!). But I’m going to wait until I have pictures from our photographer to put any on here. If you follow me on Instagram, you can get a sneak peak, if you haven’t already.
For now we’ll just recap the honeymoon in Maui. We ate a lot of food…a lot of delicious food.
As you can tell, we fed ourselves very well on our trip. We didn’t spend a lot of money on anything else besides the basic travel accommodations (flight, hotel/cottage, rental car) so we wanted to eat up (literally and figuratively) as much of the culture as we could. Maybe this was just us trying to make ourselves feel better for all of the eating out, but Greg and I both noticed an overall healthy trend when it came to food. Hawaiians seem to really focus on local, organic, all-natural, vegetarian/vegan options. While we didn’t eat many salads, our meals centered around lots of fresh fruits, veggies and fish…oh yeah, and then there was the shave ice, gelato and ice cream 😉 Have any of you ever been to Hawaii? Tell me about your trip! I’m so in love with Hawaii now, I could talk about it all the time.
When we walked into the restaurant, we were seated by the owner Jenan at a booth right by a window (as the majority of the seating is). After taking a few minutes to peruse the menu, I told Jenan I was torn between the french toast and pancakes. She told me the french toast really was awesome and that was all it took to sell me on that one.
I snagged one for myself and one to bring back to my friend that recommended them to me. The cookies had chopped pecans mixed in as well, which gave them a perfect crunchy contrast to the chewiness.
I can’t wait to go back to try breakfast and lunch!
