Straight to Hawaii, Do You Wanna Come Along With Me?

Just like the clever lyrics in that Beach Boys’ song, which so perfectly captures the spirit of this trip, our vacation in Hawaii was one of a lifetime for several reasons:

  1. We decided not to bring Little G with us (and everyone survived)!
  2. It was our last big getaway before Lil Wee Gee arrives!!
  3. We celebrated our 4th year wedding anniversary!!!
  4. And well, it’s Hawaii!!!!

All very good, well-deserved reasons, if I don’t say so myself. The Giant and I had 10 fabulous days soaking up sun and surf, splitting the time in Maui and Honolulu. If you haven’t been to Hawaii, GO! People who know me well know that I don’t usually do “beach vacays” in the truest sense (read: lay on the sand, swim in the pool) – they’re far too slow-paced for me. But, this trip ended up being the perfect blend of relaxation and exploration (albeit at an easier pace than I usually prefer). But hey, that’s bound to happen when you’re 7 months preggo, you know.

Highlights included: driving the Road to Hana with pit stops at the stunning Seven Sacred Pools (my fave spot!!), dipping our toes in the Black Sand Beach, finding the super hard-to-find Makena Cove (we finally found this spot via YouTube), dolphin-spotting, watching the Maui sun set like no other, touring the Byodo-In Temple in Oahu, indulging in the local specialties like Taro Pie at McDonald’s and Spam Musubi… and our special photo shoot with the uber-talented Anna Kim Photography!

Absolute best part, hands down? Coming home to Little G.

And obviously, every spot in Hawaii is a photographer’s dream. Keep scrolling down to join me on a little photo tour! Happy Monday to you, too, and until next time…

xo, Melissa
