postcards from paradise pt. 2

e've been back from Hawai'i for a couple weeks and it kind of feels like it was all a dream!  A very good dream.  Also, looking at these photos is a little crazy because the day after we got home, Dan shaved his beard clean off!  Ah!  It was a little very unsettling.  I've gotten used to it now, but it's funny how different he looks in these photos!  I think if I lived in Hawai'i I'd have to make a living taking pictures of plants and cocktails, because both are just so much more pretty and vibrant in tropical climes.  But I probably shouldn't live in Hawai'i because I'm sure I'd drink way too many Mai Tais.  Too much of a good thing.
I feel like we're itching for a change of scenery, Dan + I.  Between going to Hawai'i and having time to dream, and talking to people who have been inspirational, we've been talking a lot about moving or just traveling more.  We just chatted with one of Dan's old high school friends who just came back from living in NYC for two years and we were like, "Huh... we could do that, that'd be interesting, eh?"  It's nice daydreaming about living somewhere else for a bit, though I suspect that regardless of where our travels take us, we'll probably end up somewhere in the PNW.  Still, I don't want to spend my whole life in Tacoma.  As much as I love it, I need to stretch my legs and get out for a bit.
