kona & oahu | hawaii

In Hawaii we:
  • swam with green sea turtles.
  • ate pineapple ice-cream at the Dole Pineapple Plantation.
  • cruised around the shores of Oahu in a Ford Mustang convertible.
  • took too many photos of palm trees.
  • accomplished a life-long mission.
  • hiked up a volcanic crater in 100 degree heat.
  • went to a beach where the sand was green.
  • watched the sun set over paradise every single night.
  • swam in the clearest water we've ever set eyes on.
  • drank too many coconut mocha's.
  • left far, far, far too soon.

*i couldn't find the words to describe our time in Hawaii, so we composed the list above instead.
 we'll let the photos do the talking.

Hawaii, we left you after just scratching your surface. We'll be back very, very, soon. 


  1. now that looks like absolute bliss. wow.

    1. it was incredible. 'bliss' is the perfect way to describe it!

  2. This reminds me of my Hawaii post! I miss it so. You captured the islands beautifully. That jellyfish frame? The sunset? Perfect.

  3. The worst pictures to look at while on my lunch break at the office and the best pictures to look at on a Friday afternoon! It looks like you had so much fun, I can't wait to visit Hawaii one day!
