~ happy new year and adam sandler

I am overwhelmed with all the nice messages I have received these past couple weeks thanking me for the time and energy I spend on posts for the french tangerine. I can't believe I've been at it for 4 years! I have always had an easy time with inspiration for posts, and have said time and again, I'll never run out of things to post about... Yet when we returned from our Hawaii vacation on Sunday, I panicked when I realized I had nothing prepared for this week. Not to worry, this is not my resignation post. However, I think I need another week off :) You can certainly visit my instagram account in the meantime: @thefrenchtangerine
(If you are already a follower, you have seen all the photos in this post!) 

I adore the chandeliers in the hotel lobby... Like going back in time! 

A highlight of the trip was having Adam Sandler and his family at our hotel. We felt like BFF's by the end of the week after shared elevator rides, adjacent breakfast tables, pool and beach activities, etc...
Here they are taking a family photo directly in front of our beach chairs.

Adam, Jackie, Sunny and Sadie

Adam on the beach with Sunny...

He has such a distinctive voice ~ you would know it's him with your eyes closed. Whether he was singing a "you are stinky" song to his daughters or getting them all excited at the breakfast buffet about cantaloupe, he was almost always barefooted and in athletic shorts and a t-shirt. A very happy dude for sure.

After a few days, Brookes asked for a pic...

Hillary just walked up to him and he said, "I hope we're doing a selfie!" He could not be more charming or appreciative of his fans.

A great vacation...

Best vacation ever until the trip home. Is there anything more miserable? I am officially not a fan of US Airways.
3 hour layover in Phoenix...

Thank YOU, each and every one of you, who read the blog and take the time to leave a comment or send an email with encouraging thoughts... I still love this hobby of mine and look forward to another year of inspiration!

Dee Dee – Thank you so much for letting me know! I think I had heard this but I had forgotten.. It happens to be during my birthday weekend :) I’ve been interested in Blackberry Farms before, and this just might be my opportunity to visit!
Thanks for thinking of me :)

Happy New Year, I love your blog! You have such great style. We stay at the Kahala Resort when we go to Honolulu, always make a point of having a layover there. I was very sick when staying there one time, and oh my the care and attention was unbelievable. Again Love Your Blog!
