Aloha from Maui

The view from our Lanai

10 years ago The Lovely Anna and I took a trip for our 10 year anniversary (at least that’s the excuse we used) to the island of Maui, Hawaii and basically fell in love with the island. We bought a timeshare week there and have traveled to Maui every year since, usually just the two of us but occasionally with close friends with whom we were able to share the charm and beauty of this Hawaiian island.

This year for our 20th anniversary we finally brought all our kids (including Elizabeth!!) along as well as lots of family and friends to watch us renew our wedding vows on the beach at sunset tonight. After we will have a reception at a fantastic Maui restaurant and then spend the rest of the week enjoying the island. The Lovely Anna is in 7th heaven.

Blogging will be daily but light this week. Aloha and mahalo!

    I can’t congratulate you enough, Tom! That’s quite a feat these days. My wife and will have been married for 11 years in December (despite just being 32 years old), so I can definitely relate to your blissfulness! Way to go!

    Congratulations to you both, and wishing you many happy returns of the day. How very wonderful to share such a special place and event with loved ones. Best to you and your family!

    As I type this, you’ve probably just completed your vow renewal… I wish we could have been there to help share in your celebration. Congratulations!

    Aloha Tom, Anna and Family

    Wow… we are still reliving our trip to Honolulu 11 and half months ago; what a wonderful place to play and relax. Our Family went to Hawaii on a wish for our daughter Emily who has Tuberous Sclerosis Complex it was sponsored by (Shameless plug) ‚Äö√Ñ√∫Kids Wish Network‚Äö√Ñ√π; we spent 7 days and 6 nights, our daughter Emily did not have any problems or cares the whole week.

    Love to be able to get back to Hawaii every two years for a renewal of that energy and stableness; we are working on that

    Aloha and Mahalo
    From the Weirs..
