pinch me.....

still can't believe i was in hawaii just last week. 

we had such a fabulous time -- playing, crafting, snapping hundreds of photos (to honest....1,556 to be exact), beaching it, laughing, crying, making new friends & the list could go on & on & on & on................

Here are a few photos to start you off (there will be so much more to come).

I can't even begin to tell you how this whole "crop and cruise" thing started.  Actually people ask me all the time -- about the story when I was hired by "some lady in Calgary".  I tell them all about how we actually had never met before I was hired (she hired me over the phone); about how we were destined to be friends (by some power from above); about how we are sooooooo different & how we are soooooo alike in so many ways; about how I couldn't imagine my life with her; and about how her life stories have changed my life.  That's what I tell them.  I tell them about Allison and all the many wonderful things about her & I & crop and cruise & our adventures.

And I could never forget Christy.  She is one of the most beautiful people I have ever met -- inside & out.  And I know it sounds so cliche, but she is truly so incredibly kind & generous & gracious & nurturing & patient & talented (oh my word, you know have no idea!!!!!!!) & physically b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l.  I miss her more ever time I spend time with her because we have sooooooo much fun together.  It's so easy to laugh when she is around (more at her than at me though) -- j.k. Christy.

The sun, the palm trees & the ocean......(sigh).......oh, Hawaii.

Waikiki Beach (near our hotel) at night.  So incredibly beautiful.

So......come back soon to see some more photos of Hawaii.  I'm going to struggle to pick all the best photos to scrapbook.  I have soooo much product from the events that I can't wait to play.
