Happy Leis to You

We're off! It is our one year wedding anniversary and we are heading back to the island where we were married, Kauai. We both love Kauai. In our opinion, it is the very best of the Hawaiian islands. Visiting Hawaii is so nice because its so easy. There is no language barrier or currency exchanges and you feel like you're really away from it all. I used to be the kind of person (still am somewhat) who thinks that going to the same place every year is BORING. The reason we go back to Kauai, repeatedly, is that it truly is a vacation. I come back feeling so refreshed, so positive, so alive. What can beat that?

My next 10 days include fresh papaya every morning, snorkeling, sunbathing, drinking mai tais and learning to surf. What a great break we have ahead of us.

This means no baking for a couple of weeks and I'm now missing out on two delicious recipes from Tuesdays with Dorie- the Fluted Polenta Cake that I really could have made but didn't and the Peanut Butter Torte that's up for this coming week. I've been hoping the torte would be selected soon as I adore peanut butter and chocolate. I won't complain any more about that though.

Happy Anniversary! We honeymooned in Hawaii (on the Big Island) and I hope we can go back one day. Your next 10 days sound heavenly! Aloha!
