Last day here and I’m sitting alone in our little rental house in Diamond Head, thinking about the past few weeks. I haven’t taken many photos of the usual things I take of. This trip has been different and focused around friends and family. Something I’ve needed more than I realised. It’s been so nice sliding back into the ease and simplicity of living the island life. Getting shave ice, eating local food, hanging out with family at sunset and being silly. Hawai’i, you make it so hard to leave 🌺 A hui hou kākou ✨

2018. What a crazy, crazy, eyeopening and humbling year. I’m so grateful for all of it, especially the bad stuff. It helped me see what was really important and what I need to focus more of my energy on. Excited for this imaginary fresh slate! Happy New Year, everyone!! 2019! 🎉

December 29, 2018. I woke up today and my little baby doesn’t feel so much like a baby anymore. As if it happened overnight.

Winter bliss ☀️🌴🌊

Christmas Day - 2018. Baby’s finally asleep. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is playing on T.V. I’m recovering from a bad cold I caught in LA and reflecting on the best Christmas I’ve had in years. Family, food and just simple fun spent in this hotel room. A day I won’t soon forget, that’s for sure ❤️. Merry Christmas, friends 🎄

G’morning 🍧


Somewhere over Greenland on no sleep. What a crazy 11 hour journey but it was so worth it. We’re spending a few days in LA visiting family before heading back to Hawai’i ❤️. So happy to be back here! 🌴 I’ve missed you Los Angeles ⭐️
