Why Hawaii Is So Important To Us
Dedicated to Dave, My husband

Submitted by Bette

My husband, Dave, and I have been married 15 years. We have two wonderful children. When we met in Connecticut in 1987, we hit it off right away and got married two years later. We both loved to travel and both had always wanted to go to Hawaii, but because of his job situation and going to law school evenings and weekends, we could not take off the two weeks that we felt would be needed to go to Hawaii. We kept saying "next year" but it never panned out. My father in law had won a trip to Hawaii from his work and he and his wife were looking forward to this trip so much. My mother in law even decorated their house with pineapples in anticipation of the trip! However, she unexpectadly passed away 5 days before the birth of our first son. It was such a bittersweet time for us. The saddest part is they never realized their future plans together, my father in law retiring and doesn't travel anymore due to his health. And here Dave and I are 15 years later and discussed when I turned 40 last year how it would be great to finally go to Hawaii. My father in law said something that is making us make going our priority...he said to do it while you are able and we both have each other because the future is not always certain.

So, our dream is to go this summer with our two sons, Joey, aged 14 and David, aged 8. We want to share the experience with our boys who we feel are at a good travelling age. We feel that it would even more to us now, after 15 years of being together and having our wonderful boys, and are certain that the best is yet to come!
