fleming_beach_mauiThe tide is High and [we] are holding on…” …to our dreams of a vacation on Maui!

Would you believe that my husband and I have lived in California our ENTIRE lives and have NEVER been to Maui, let alone Hawaii?!? We are one direct flight away, and we just can’t seem to get there (for those of you readers on the East Coast, what you think of me not getting to Hawaii is probably what I think of you not getting to London!) 😉 Don’t get me wrong, I definitely want to go. I mean, what’s not to like about Hawaii?? It has everything we have ever dreamed about for a vacation. Fantastic beaches, warm, crystal clear seas, rainforests, fabulous hotels, and great food (you know we at le•top are keen on great food…even if I can’t some of us don’t cook!). At this price, I am considering ditching our plans for a vacation (no, it’s not a dream…) to Canada and scooping up this great deal instead. Oh, to laze on the beach, with a mai tai in one hand, a good book in the other, “working” on my golden tan…okay, okay…with my fair complexion I would just burn…but if I’m going to dream, I might as well go all out!

We’re very excited to learn that one of our le•top and rabbitmoon Favorites Contest winners, Marissa C., gave birth to a tiny bundle of joy recently. Jake Thomas arrived on Monday, March 23 at 7:43 am. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 1 ounce and was 18 1/2 inches long. Happy Birthday, Jake! Marissa wrote to say he is still too small to wear the clothes she chose as part of her contest win, but as soon as he’s big enough, we’ll be getting more photos. Thanks for sharing, Marrissa, and congratulations to you and your family!
