Kamaole Beach 2 in Kihei, Hawaii

Week one here on the island is already a wrap. Can you even believe that?! Right now, I’m kinda running to all my familiar hotspots and just getting a lay of the land once again.  I attempted a journal blog post. It was fun and rather therapeutic, however I’m not sure where something that detailed […]

As many of you already know, back when I was going through a little life crisis, I default checked Maui flights where nothing was available. So I checked into an AMAZING nearby quaint lake cottage instead for a quick fix. It was beyond perfect and JUST what I craved for. After returning, I attempted to […]

When Michael from Inspired by Charm was in Maui the same time we were this past summer, he shot me a message of a MUST stop, with a picture similar to the one above. Apparently there was this junk inspired restaurant in the middle of a plantation that I needed to see. What in the world?! […]

This is going to be one pretty, AND big post. You don’t mind, do you? This blog is a little like a surprise grab bag… will she encourage us to build a closet?  Spin past a growling creature hidden beside a bike path? Whip up a new old sign? Or take a trip to Hawaii? Your […]

If you followed me on Instagram stories while I was away during Christmas, this view will look very familiar to you. You are looking down from the lanai of unit 2212, at Maui Vista, located in Kihei, Maui. I came to know this little space like it was my best friend. On so many levels. When […]

Remember when I told you about losing my camera last time I was in Hawaii? This round, I safely removed the SD card from the camera before travelling home. How smart am I! But once home, I couldn’t find it. A moment of silence, please… In panic mode, I suddenly stopped, laughed and thought… maybe some things […]
