On The Road || Maui with a Toddler

One night in February, I dreamt that Aaron, Parker, and I were standing in line for shaved ice in Maui and when I woke up it was settled– I book the trip a week later, after a little cajoling of Aaron– and it’s going in the books as one of the best decisions I’ve made so far in 2016!  We are about to embark on this cross-country move and eventually a second child and it just felt like a rare moment to be able to do something …
