Hello, Maui

Sep 20, 2012 | Life in Progress

Dear Maui,
  On the road to Hana.
Thank you for your wide open spaces. Your big skies. Your insistence that we all take a breath and…..pause.

Thank you for the most beautiful sunrise I’ve ever seen atop a volcano, above the clouds, and in the arms of my best friend.
  Untitled Untitled Untitled 
Thank you for the moments of wow, the joy…. 
and the exhausting kind of fun. 
Thank you for the time with our well loved friends….
and crushes.

Thank you for the opportunity to witness the celebration, the joining, the commitment of two amazing souls in love. It’s been a long time since I cried at a wedding, and the tears were happy and full. Untitled 
Thank you for your sunsets. It’s rare that we get anything near this gorgeous in Portland. Hi 
I especially thank you for the downtime…. 
This is True's idea of relaxing. Ben Harper on YouTube, a snack, and legs propped up on the table. #happiness Hello world. I'm 23 months and loving life! 
The all out lounging…

The time with family… 
and each other. 
 We’re having the best time. Unplugged and grateful. XO, all of us.

Sending much love,

    Oh…what divine pictures…True is so big and beautiful and you look radiant..there is nothing like a wedding on Maui…it's such a soulful place…I lived at the Royal Lahaina Resort and got married and gave birth to my son at the resort..also had a ceremony at the buddist temple in Lahaina…thank you for sharing your journey…it made me breathe deep and remember the bliss of island life and the fleeting moments of having a white haired beaming little tike.

    Dear Kelly, great photos, what a powerful scenary!. My name is Gloria (this is the first time I leave a comment on a blog!!), I am living and working in London and I just wanted to thank you for writing the e-book Flying Lessons 1. The book gave me the courage to finally start writing my own blog since last July. I am a civil servant for working United Nations in full time basis; I am also a mother of a magical 3 year old,
    and very little free time to persue what I want the most, sharing my journey of self-descovery through intuitive painting and awakening conciousnes. Reading your story has touched me deeply as I find lots of similarities, one being the desire to paint and create art full time write my feelings and thoughts while on the road towards spirituality and personal growth. Kelly, your web site and blog are absolutely awesome and your words are so inspirational, not to mention your magical and astonishing work. Thanks again for guiding us and motivating us every single day with your delightful energy. You are an enchanted soul. Love and light. Gloria
