“Lucky we live Hawaii” is a local saying that encapsulates the gratitude each and every one of us privileged to call Maui home understands completely.
Mauians are grateful for Magical Moments: the sun rising over Haleakala, seeing a whale breech, standing under a waterfall on the road to Hana, hiking La Peruse, the night sky without light pollution – this magic surrounds us every day.
It is a documented fact - The Aloha State is one of the healthiest and happiest place to live.
My story is not such an unusual one. After vacationing in Hawaii for several years, my husband and I knew, without a doubt, we wanted to live here one day.
We purchased 4 acres on the North Shore, built a small cottage with the intention of building a larger home when and if we were able to move.
Then – we got midlife crazy – said, “What the heck! Let’s see if the fantasy is real.” We moved to Maui “on a trial basis” and have never looked back! Each and every morning, my husband and I would wake up and say, “Lucky we live on the North Shore.”
Maui embraced us right back.
We moved to Wailea and now each morning, my husband and I look at each other and say, “Lucky we live Wailea!”
