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.



Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay

This was probably my favorite day from our time in Hawaii! I’ve been here before as a kid so I thought snorkeling would be a piece of cake, but my mask was leaking so my nose would fill up with water which made me hold my breath instead of breathing through the snorkel and then I would come up for air and drain my mask…and I kept doing this and Jake and I were cracking up for like 20 minutes. lol We finally switched masks and then everything was fine.

Anyways, we saw so many beautiful fish, I would grab Jake and point at each new fish I saw! The Humuhumus are my favorite but probably not Jakes favorite because one of them literally swam full force right into Jakes mask like it was trying to head butt him or something haha He claims an eel also tried to eat him but I never saw it…lol  We basically spent the whole time laughing and in awe of all the beauty and it was just a really really wonderful day.

Also if you are looking for an underwater phone case, I have this one and it works great! And if you are wondering how the sound/speaker works with the case on, I haven’t noticed any problems at all, everyone can still hear me when talking on the phone and music plays just fine πŸ™‚

Hope you are having a great week!

A Swim with Wild Sea Turtles

For Christmas Jake bought me a leather journal to write about all our travel adventures. The feeling of being able to re-read our memories of different places, knowing that it was authentically written in that place and time…well I just love it πŸ™‚ So here is a journal entry from our time in Hawaii!

Oahu, Hawaii // 5-25-17

Today we went to Haleiwa on the North Shore. Im not sure the name of the beach but we swam with turtles! It was magical! πŸ™‚ I saw at least 5 of themΒ and they swam right up to us and around us and we just floated next to them. They are so cute and calm. It was an amazing experience that I hope to have again someday!

Jake and I also went for a walk along the beach and found some tide pools and explored around there for a while and after we all went to Matsumoto shaved ice which was super yummy!

Happy Wednesday friends!

With Love,


Aloha Lanikai Beach

The beach from my memories, the one my mom grew up with and the first place we stopped after landing on Oahu. Lanikai. It always feels like home even though I’ve never lived here. My soul longs for the sun, the sand, and the sea, so the past 9 days have been amazing and refreshing. This was the first day and shortly after we got plate lunch and then headed to my Auntie Corey’s house. After that we napped because we were so tired from the 3 hour time difference, but on the upside we woke up early everyday! I have lots more photos and fun things to share so make sure you subscribe by entering your email address and hitting the subscribe button below πŸ™‚ that way you won’t miss anything good!

ps. You can shop my swimsuit here, it fits super well and is under $20 πŸ™‚

Road Trip Conversations


Hi guys! By the time you are reading this we will be on a plane to Hawaii! Jake has never been so i’m excited to show him my favorite beach and explore some new places too.

Here are some photos from San Francisco last week. I had an appointment in the city so we made a little road trip out of it and saw the bridge and got yummy snacks. But my favorite part was actually just talking in the car on the way there and back and singing songs together πŸ™‚

We were talking about high school memories and how different our experiences were, embarrassing stories, etc. and I just realized how different we both are now and how thankful I am that we met when we did. haha Even looking back on how we have changed in just the past 5 years since we met is crazy to me. Our dreams and goals have taken a complete turn and its exciting! I guess what I’m getting at is it’s really important to be with some one who you can change and grow and learn with and keep moving forward despite all the negative, and I’m grateful that I have someone to do that with even though we are both so dang stubborn sometimes lol

Thats all for now πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading and if you want to see beautiful beach pictures and read about our adventures on Oahu make sure to subscribe and follow along on Instagram! Also I’m completely hooked on insta stories now that they have filters (adios snapchat) so you can catch me in real time on there πŸ™‚
