The Hit List - Hawaii, I think I love you

I did two things that I swore I’d never do in a million years: one, travel during the winter months and two, go to a tropical climate. Yet my finger lingered on the “buy” button every time I gazed at the sales page for the writer’s retreat. Finally, I gathered my courage and said: “I’m in.” GULP.

It was a big expense and SCARY AF. Hot weather and humidity? NOT MY JAM. A 9-hour flight in a month known for blizzards? What the hell am I thinking?

Truthfully, I was thinking about improving my writing skills. Plus I wanted time away from the daily grind to think, create, and BREATHE. So yeah, that is what drove me to click that Buy button. And here I am. Loving every single second of this amazing retreat surrounded by soulful writerly sisters in a gorgeous location, eating the freshest fare ever. (Note: No Jason Momoa sightings to speak of.)

I’m not bitching about the heat or the humidity. I’m in love. Here are a few pics so you can see what my fuss is about:
