My Happy Place... Hawaii

Aloha! I knew it's been awhile since I blogged and yet I didn't realize it's been almost 2 months! Holy cow, does time go by fast!

I won't bore you with all the mundane, tedious things that has happened in those 2 months, but I will share some photos of a recent trip to Hawaii I took. Not to show off or make you envious, I just HAVE to share this beauty with you all.

We stayed at the Westin Kaanapali in Maui. I highly recommend it. It's right on the beach and very close to a small shopping center and restaurants.

You can't have a Hawaiian vacation without a lava flow!

A MUST place to dine in Lahaina, Maui. The pizza is SOO good ,and the photo before this one is the view, heavenly.

Okay, please tell me you see this too. Two kids looking at one another, one on left is a boy with a newsboy cap and on the right a girl with a little piggy tail on top of her head. Do you see it?

My husband and I. On the trip... alone...no kids. It's been forever since we've done this and never this far away or for so long, but it was so nice to reconnect and just be us.

The sunsets here are amazing. This particular night it was outstanding! So bright pink, and it kept changing colors by the second. I couldn't take enough photos and of course the photos never capture the true beauty!

I bought this book to bring home for some inspiration and dreaming. I am so in love with old Hawaiian plantation homes. The ones with dark floors and white planked walls, and beams. LOVE it! 

and of course adding these photos with the app Waterlogue, makes them a little bit cooler.

Hawaii is such a peaceful, tranquil place. The minute I walk out of the airport, the stress of ordinary life just falls off my shoulders. If you have read my blog for awhile you may know my deep desire to live in Hawaii someday. (You can read about it here.) But for now, we will just have to visit, and hopefully visit frequently.

The trip went by way too fast of course, but it was good to get back to our girls, our pup and our own bed and pillows.

Hopefully, I will be back to blogging a little more. 


  1. Wow - how jealous am I?! Looks like such an amazing trip and what a treat to do it kid-free!

  2. Stacey how wonderful to get away, just you and your husband, to what is arguably one of the most beautiful places on earth! You captured so many beautiful shots, I love the Waterlogue versions of them too! So glad for you that you snuck away and had a wonderful time.
