Aloha, happy Friday! September will be here in a few weeks and I’m so excited because it is my favorite month of the year! In preparing for September, I was reminded of a trip I took to Hawaii in 2 years ago in September, actually it happened to be on my 25th birthday, and I wanted to share some of those photos with you. I had the opportunity to travel to Hawaii with one of my sisters, brother-in-law, and youngest niece, at the time, and it will forever be one of my most memorable experiences. Not only was it so special to have some rest, relaxation, and down time, but it was just breathtakingly beautiful! I had always wanted to go to Hawaii because I am a beach/ocean girl at heart, so I felt almost paralyzed by my excitement to finally be able to go. We went to The Big Island and spent about a week there just relaxing, snorkeling, hanging out at the beaches, eating giant avocados and papayas, going to the farmers market, and driving all over the island. My sister and brother-in-law had rented a house with an ocean view and, because it was off-season and the rates were so much lower, the house was way larger than we needed for 3 adults but still so fun to stay in a big house. There was no air conditioner system in the house so we just kept the windows and sliding doors open at night, and you could hear nothing but the ocean. It was so cool and relaxing to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the ocean everyday! I would go back in a heartbeat and you should too if you want a trip for nothing but rest and relaxation.
The views from my bedroom every morning!
