John and I were lucky enough to sneak off to Maui for a couple of days for our babymoon before Thanksgiving. Two things we learned on this trip: 1) After having gone to Mexico already 3 times together, we much prefer Hawaii. Same language, shorter trip, less culture shock. Our kind of place! 2. We are homebodies and overall busy people, so we aren't huge on the idea of going on week-long vacations.
We got there early on a Friday, and came home late on Tuesday. Due to the time difference, that gave us about 4+ days to enjoy our time away, which was perfect for us.
