Working from (insert coffee shop here)

One of the huge perks about my job is that I get to work from home. It’s the reason Tommy and I have been able to move around as we please these last few years. However, there are both advantages and disadvantages to the lifestyle.

Advantages:

  • Dress Code = Pajamas
  • Commute = 3 seconds from bed to desk (slight traffic as puppies are running around)
  • Morning Prep time = ranges from 2 – 15 minutes depending on if I have a video conference. (at some point we should talk about the enormous injustice of women having to wear makeup to look presentable)
  • Disturbances are minimal – ever need to just GET SHIT DONE without people walking by and talking to you every 5 minutes?
  • Office = Anywhere with internet!!! This is the real inspiration for the post because I like to sit in beautiful coffee shops. At the bottom of the post are a few of my favorites in Austin, TX.

Andaz Maui: Photo Gallery

I give this place an overall rating of A-. While I maintain that this is a great hotel, our experience has declined as of late. When we first visited the Andaz Maui in 2014, it was brand spanking new. They set obscenely high standards and treated everyone like royalty. A few years later and I understand when you are at full capacity that not everyone can be a princess anymore.

I get it but at the same time I don’t like it. Especially since I chose this place to shell out tens of thousands of dollars for the most important day of my life. Yes, we got married here in 2015 and it was completely perfect. And now, I expect to be treated like royalty every time I return. Unreasonable? Perhaps. But reason has little to do with anything.

Despite my disappointment this time around, it is still a beautiful property and the food is superb (specifically Morimoto and Ka’ana Kitchen). Our routine is to lounge by the pool for hours on end sipping smoothies.
