travel | lahaina, hawaii

Last month I had an amazing opportunity to tag along on a vacation to Maui with my beloved nanny family. The only other time I had been to Hawaii was when I was nine months old, so needless to say my memories are a bit foggy/nonexistent. 

Maui was such a beautiful island and revisiting these photos, I can't believe how blessed I am to have been there. I'll be forever dreaming about returning to those ombre waters and that warm breeze.

I didn't take nearly as many photos as I had anticipated. I spent too much time splashing in the ocean, laying in the grass, entertaining sweaty babies, and just being. From the few photos that I did take, here are some of my favorites.

Thanks to a lovely surprise from my best friend, I got to spend New Years' Weekend in Monterey, California. You walk outside of her family's home, cross the street, and you're standing over the ocean. It was unreal how beautiful it was, I took probably 500 photos in a few short days. Here are a few of my favorites.
