I just made a vacation themed scrapbook layout featuring photos from a trip my husband Mike and I took to Hawaii in 2003. I have been scrapping pages from that trip and am sooooo enjoying reliving the experience. It was the vacation of a lifetime!
The main reason we took the trip was to attend our friends’ wedding; at the time they lived on the island of Oahu and they got married right on the beach there. (I haven’t finished my layouts of the beach wedding yet but I am having so much fun working on them! Can’t wait to get this album put together!)
I had never been to Hawaii before. This was the best way to experience it- surrounded by friends plus the natural beauty of the islands. Having that many friends in town meant that there was always someone around to hang out with and go exploring with. We packed so much adventure into such a short amount of time- visiting the botanical gardens and the museum, snorkeling, shopping, going to the beach, eating out, cooking at “home” (we stayed at our friends’ house so it almost did feel like home!)
Mike is talking about taking me back, and trust me I really want to go! But our friends don’t live there any more so it will NOT be the same!
