Maui Incentive Trip Highlights + Sunday Stamping VIDEO

Aloha! Last month, my husband and I enjoyed a week in Maui -- a free incentive trip that I earned from Stampin' Up! Thank you to my customers and team members for making it possible for me to earn these dream vacations! 

After the original trip was postponed last summer because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Stampin' Up! doubled down on paradise and offered an extended Maui trip this year. Unfortunately, all of the international achievers, including those in Canada, we unable to join us due to travel restrictions, so we did our best to soak in every minute a little extra for all of them! Here are some photos from our trip.

This trip was a little different because of Covid restrictions. We did manage to have some larger outdoor gatherings: a brunch, evening mixer, and the closing luau. Our assigned seating was based on incoming flights. And instead of the buzzing Hospitality Room with candy and treats everyone, it was a quiet open-air space where we could stop in and spin for a prize.

We stayed at the Grand Wailea Resort and it was so beautiful! I felt like we were living in a postcard!

Stampin' Up! spoiled us with TWO excursions. We chose to do the Downhill Bike Ride (down the 
Haleakalā volcano) and the East Maui Waterfall Hike. They were both amazing experiences! In addition, Stampin' Up! also treated us both to a spa treatment. Jim and I each enjoyed a massage, timed the day after our bike ride to help loosen stiff muscles from leaning over the handlebars! 

In addition to those excursions, we splurged and took a helicopter ride! The views of Maui and Molokai from above were incredible!  

I couldn't get enough of these gorgeous Maui sunsets! For more sunset photos, check out my post on Facebook.

It was a busy, but relaxing week! We enjoyed lots of downtime around excursions to swim and snorkel right off the resort beach, golf (just Jim!), and visit with friends.

One of my favorite things about Stampin' Up! incentive trips is getting to spend time and travel with my parents! As you know, my mom, Susan LaCroix is also a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and trip achiever. (We were the ONLY mother-daughter trip achievers in attendance!)
