Today, I leave for my favorite place in the world: Hawaii. I am so excited that I have created this opportunity for myself and my family. I am so proud that I love myself enough to gift myself with this trip.


I first traveled to Maui on my honeymoon over 25 years ago. By happenstance, we ended up at The Hyatt Regency on the concierge floor. I have gone back ever since. It’s like home to me, and it regenerates my soul. I have friends there in the concierge who threw birthday parties for Gabrielle when she was young, who remember Chris, who helped me plan his service there. Owners of restaurants know me by name because I’ve been back so many years to celebrate with them.


But it’s the water and the palms and the aloha spirit that ignites me as soon as I step off the plane. I bring it home in my memory until the next time I return. This year I will share this with my beautiful Lanny, and my amazing daughter and her guy I love so much.


This is, indeed, a good way to love yourself.


How can you treat yourself to some self-love today? Choose that, my beautiful friend.
