This photo above was taken from our kitchen window. I used my IPhone. Although I used the Instagram Apps, I didn’t really use any filter on it. This is how our Thanksgiving Day here on Maui came to an end (or almost the end). How can I not be thankful? Living here on paradise is a dream to so many, and yet here I am living the dream. Life is good. We had a bountiful meal. We celebrated this day with our best friends here on Maui – actually our family here. They are the ones we camped with at Kipahulu and in Haleakala Crater, they are our ohana so to speak.
I don’t know about you, but as for me, I am stuffed! I ate so much! There are still plenty of food left over so I know I am going to be eating some more. Yikes! Running is on my list of things to do tomorrow!
When our friends went home, my husband and I decided to go to Keawakapu Beach to walk Sonny, our famous Italian Greyhound. It was a gorgeous day at the beach. I am happy for all the visitors who are here for Thanksgiving. They not only got the epic weather the whole day, they were also shown a beautiful Maui sunset at the end of the day.
As I was walking along the beach stuffed, I can’t help but think of the many things I am thankful for. Way too many to mention here on this post. But one thing is for sure … Thanksgiving is really not about the turkey … it’s about appreciating life and being grateful for our loved ones – our family and friends.
With that thought, I just want to mention here how grateful I am to all of you who regularly come here and read my blog. It’s a joy for me to write here, but even more so, its a joy for me to hear that you enjoy reading this blog. Before the mood of this blog shifts to Christmas (oh I love Christmas), I just wanted to make sure that I express my thankfulness to you all. Aloha!

Speaking of aloha, I am making this post my official entry to the “Aloha Friday” post at An Island Life, by Kailani. There are three questions I have for this week – you can answer one, or you can answer 2 or all: 1) What you are thankful for today? I know you have many, but share at least one 2) What was your favorite food in your Thanksgiving Feast today? 3) Are going shopping on Black Friday? (today?)
