A Lavish Laurel Court Breakfast Buffet

Warning: the reading of the following post may cause excessive salivation. Prepare to dribble. Might be an idea to grab a cuppa, too, cos it’s longish… But you know what I’m like when we talk food, right? The lobby at The Fairmont. At long last Monsieur and I could begin our much-needed honeymoon in earnest….

My Fair Fairmont – and the honeymoon begins

Aloha, It’s Friday!

The totally filthy Ka’anapali Beach in Maui. (That’s surfer speak, Brah.) The most enjoyable part of planning a wedding has to be arranging the honeymoon, at least, that’s how it was for this particular bride.

In one afternoon we’d…
