Hello?! Anyone out there?? I know it has been SO LONG since I have posted last. Hawaii for 10 days, then working for the weeks after (and trying so hard to keep up with the faster-paced lifestyle here!) pushed back allllll my time to write in my lovely little blog.
I HAVE TIME. [kinda] 🙂
So I choose to link with Amanda for Thursday thoughts!
I wanna show you every single detail of what I saw and experienced in Hawaii, but that would be… about 8 blogs’ worth. So, instead, I’ll do a fancy shmancy photo-highlight version for this incredible trip. ❤ Enjoy!
Ready to fly!
Our wonderful hosts’/ friends’ home!
Yoga pose #1 of the trip 😉
Our attempt at going for a run, in 80 degrees, strictly uphill.
First time EVER snorkeling!! AMAZING!
Gorgeous St. Michael the Archangel church
Ya know, just sitting on some lava tubes from the local volcano.
Exploring the black-lava shorelines and little black crabs.
How gorgeous is this local beach…
Kona Brewing Company Tour! Deliciousss.
Rowing down to Hawaii 🙂
Our stunning views for the whole trip. ❤
Some of our INCREDIBLE meals. The bottom is literally the best fish fry I’ve ever had.
YEAH, we cliff-dived 😀 HOLY CATS, highlight of my life.
We hiked (and created our own path on) a “lava lake/crater”. Yeah, that was pretty baller.
My favorite hike we went on, on Thanksgiving day. The peace and calm was tangible, and I soaked up as much as I could 🙂
Submarine Journey!! WOAH this was a highlight for me, seeing all those fishies and sharks and ship wreckage down in the ocean!
Our wonderful, selfless, and splendidly fun Ohana. ❤ 🙂
Tour of beautiful Hawaiian sacred land.
My favorite person in the world ❤ Our hiking adventures were unbelievably amazing!
I have DOZENS AND DOZENS more pictures, but for now, this is our amazing, once-in-a-lifetime travel to Hawaii, in a very small nutshell. I hope that you can one day go and see this beautiful paradise. ❤
OH! And how could I forget… our amazing hosts/friends who live in Hawaii (Tony and Kristen) GOT ENGAGED while we were there! Love you both, and many amazing happy years to you ❤ 🙂
Happy happy life, happy happy love, and happy happy peace ❤
