Aloha from Hawaii!

My friend went to Hawaii and all I got was this lousy t-shirt! Not this time.

W's ex-wife and her fiance spent ten days in Hawaii this summer. Though it was a very long amount of travel time getting back to New Jersey, they packed up gifts and lugged them home. I thought that this was so sweet that I wanted to share what they got me. It's feels nice that W and I have good relationships with our exes and their spouses, and these gifts just warm the heart. They aren't just gifts; they are thoughtful gifts. I cannot stand a morning without good coffee, and my current addiction is mermaids. That's why these gifts are just perfect.

K, I'm drinking the coffee as I type this, and boy is it good. Any chance you can go back and get me some more? :)

Kauai Coffee straight from Hawaii. Yum.
Wooden, painted mermaid. When I asked K if she knew I loved mermaids,
she said, "No, but I liked it so I knew you would, too." We literally choose the same
furniture from Savannah Hope Vintage, pick up things that the other may have just
seen at a tag sale, and have found ourselves in the same sweatshirts more than once. Too funny.

She certainly needed to be near water.
