Hawaii is the best place to fall in love.
At least, that’s what the author of this article on the Huffington Post website claims & I have to say that I agree.
Sure, Alex and I didn’t fall in love here in Hawaii but we did say our “I do’s” here, honeymoon here, & have decided to start our family here so, with us at least, it has certainly proven itself to be a great place to stay in love.
People are just happier here. The “aloha spirit” you always hear about is real. When you are completely surrounded by the natural beauty of the islands and the beauty of truly hospitable people, you can’t help but be happy. And in love.
I’ll be working on Valentine’s Day this year so we won’t be heading out for a fancy dinner (not that we would anyways since we are in the middle of our month of home-cooked meals) but I do still plan on making a special breakfast for Alex.
In honor of Hawaii being mentioned as one of the best places for love, I’ve decided to ditch the traditional Valentine’s Day theming for this breakfast and will be replacing it with a little bit of island style.
The menu is simple – hawaiian sweet bread french toast, portuguese sausage and eggs. I’ll have fresh brewed coffee (of course) and some yummy pineapple iced tea.
What I love most about this island style Valentine’s Day breakfast is that it isn’t overly romantic or “valentine-y” which makes it perfect for any morning that you feel like bringing a little aloha into your world.
