The Maui Tweetup

Liza @AMauiBlog puts it all together. She's wearing my Taro Leaves Design!
So pretty in red.This was my first TweetUP and it was very exciting to meet so many people.We met at The Queen Ka`ahumanu Shopping Center Food Court on Maui. A great location to meet. I love our mall. It is the only open air yet covered mall I know. So refreshing and a view of the Harbor and West Maui Mountains too. We were next to the Japanese Edo Restaurant. Everyone shared businesscards and I gave out some of my books and t-shirts.

Here I am with @lamourwedding (Geanelli)

@Peterliu47 signing in and @ucsmiles.

This nice lady Yuki Lei Sugimura puts together events such as The Ulupalakua Thing! @ucsmiles (Cindy) was raised on Molokai.

@jalove (jamie) and Chris Norberg, Web Designer

We all introduced ourselves and @djsmooks arrived last. He is the one with the "Get Some " T-shirt. Everyone had an interesting background. Then I learned that Judi Riley author of "When I Am Quiet On Maui" and "When I Am Quiet On Oahu" arrived after most of us had gone. So, Liza said a total of 17 of us had made this #MauiTweetup.

This couple Cindy and Kris @MauiByPhoto were celebrating their anniversary.

Geanelli is a wedding consultant here on Maui by appointment only.
Her company is L'Amour Wedding.

Her husband Richard Lewis was also present.

There was Dan O'Brien video marketing specialist of Mesh Media LLC. and the Maui Visitor Channel.

It was a great Tweetup! I met @raatz too!

This was really great and inspiring networking.
