Pipeline Beach Sunset // Unedited

Flying the drone ^^

Red faces πŸ™‚

No make up, beach hair & real smiles. Thats how I remember this moment. I remember being perfectly content, sitting in the sand, watching the sunset and not really thinking about any one thing in particular….but everything all at once. Reflecting on my life as a whole and imagining the next exciting thing that will happen. (I’m a dreamer, always have been)Β In order to preserve that memory I decided to leave all these images unedited. Exactly how I remember it.

Also Amber Fillerup was having a meet up at Pipeline! If you don’t know who she is, she’s an amazing lifestyle blogger and the one who inspired me to start my blog a few years ago. So I got to chat with her a little and eat Banzai bowls with my Mom. And my brother brought his drone and Jake and him flew that around. It was a good evening. The people, the place, the feeling. Just an ordinary beach sunset, but completely incredible.



Places I’m excited to visit!

If you have been bitten by the travel bug, love beautiful photos, or just wanted to know what one of my favorite hobbies is then you came to the right place πŸ™‚ I love love love to plan travel itineraries. I love looking up places to stay, places to eat, things to do, things to see, and when are the best times, or cheapest times to travel to each location. I love pricing everything out from how much meals would be per day to the prices of transportation. And I love the challenge of finding the cheapest flights. I started doing this in 2012 when I swore to myself that I was going to start traveling. Well… life happened and here we are 5 years later and I still haven’t caught any of those flights, stayed in any of the hotels, or visited any of my dream destinations. Its 2017 now and its as good a time as any to quit letting life just happen to me and to start living it. Im tired of looking back and saying “gosh I wish I would have just bought the damn tickets”. I’m tired of second guessing and over thinking every decision. It’s time to make my dreams my reality. Jake says this post is too sad, and maybe it is, but it makes me excited because my life is about to change πŸ™‚

SO here are my Top 5 Destinations that have been in the works for the past several years!

Santorini, Greece

Santorini looks so magical and romantic to me. Definitely my #1 choice to travel to with Jake. Not to mention how intrigued I am about the way they built this city into a mountain. I can’t wait to stay in a cave house. Preferably that pink one! πŸ™‚

Oahu, Hawaii

My Mom actually grew up on Oahu so she took my brother and I on vacation there a few summers while we were kids and I think a piece of me never left. It always felt like home and seeing pictures only reassures me that its time to make my way back.

Paris, France

Its Paris. Its classic. Its a must.


Every picture of Italy looks like the MOST beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Positano and Cinque Terre specificaly. Also, give me all the pizza, gelato, and turquoise water!

Banff, Canada

This place is gorgeous! I can’t imagine never seeing it in person. And taking my own photos of this lake. Can you say fairy tale?!

Well there they are! My top 5 dream destinations as of today (It will probably change tomorrow haha) I hope to see all these places at some point in my lifetime, and in the meantime they are definitely being planned πŸ™‚
