Aloha Friends!


As you read this we are literally sitting on an airplane, leaving our Maui home behind to come and visit you in California! We hope that you will be able to join us at one of the gatherings listed below. It is a very exciting time for us, as we have not been on the mainland for almost two years! Guess what? We've had a very productive time here on Maui and we're very much looking forward to sharing the fruits of our labor with you. We hope to see you soon,

With love and we are looking forward staying connected with you.
