When I married Kenji almost 6 years ago, we decided not to have a lavish wedding ceremony and instead, we opted to elope and travel to South America for a whole month. It was the best decision we could have made! My only regret… there was never any wedding photos to show our future kids.
After celebrating our 5-year anniversary this past December and with a beautiful daughter, Kaia who will be 2 next month, I wanted to surprise him with a special vow renewal. We planned a getaway to Kauai (we stayed at Kuku’iula and it was one of the most amazing places!) for an early Father’s Day trip and I decided to surprise him then. I wanted this to be as intimate and special as possible with just the three of us. There was no fancy resort. No fancy dress. No upgraded ring. Just us surrounded by love and something we will remember for a lifetime with our daughter.
Happy Aloha Friday everyone!! The other day I did a special blog post over on Spyder’s website and just wanted to share a tid bit from it. We are taking our first international trip to Tokyo with Kaia in a few months and I shared why it’s important to travel with her and some rules we make as a family when it comes to traveling. We’ve been traveling with her since she was two months old, but never farther than Utah, so I’m anxious to see how this trip will go, mainly just the flight! I’ve already ordered some great toddler toys for the airplane that I hope will keep her occupied till we absolutely need to break out the iPad. (If you recommend any toys great for long flights, please comment on this post or e-mail me. Your tips are greatly appreciated).
Guess who’s coming to HAWAII?! Elmo and his friends with “Elmo Makes Music”. Kaia and I are so excited to be going to Sesame Street Live in Honolulu as they will take the stage to share their love of music from July 7-16, 2017 at Blaisdell Concert Hall and then Maui from July 21-23, 2017.
We are giving a family 4 tickets so you can see the show for FREE!
It is said that motherhood is the toughest job on the market, but the most rewarding. It is the job/title many of us yearn for. There are so many things that come with motherhood that many of us are unaware of until it happens.
We’ve been traveling a ton lately and with many more trips planned for the summer, we seem to have the packing down like a pro. With our top 10 tips, we hope these can make your summer travels easier! If you have any tips, be sure to leave a comment below.
If you were watching our Instagram stories yesterday, you saw that I hosted a really fun happy hour with my fellow blogger friends in Waikiki. How cute was our setup by the way? Everyone at the beach wanted to join our party for sure! As some of us are mom’s, it was definitely a treat to enjoy a sunset “wine-down” and no better place in the world with a view of Diamond Head. Ocean Spray Mocktails were the perfect drinks to set the tone for the evening as they are inspired by some of our favorite cocktails like Sangria, Bellini and Tropical Citrus.
At Honua Kai Resort and Spa, on the Kaanapali Beach coast of Maui, is the perfect family getaway. With just a quick plane ride from Honolulu, you will find a little slice of heaven on this stretch of coastline be it poolside or at the beach. With each luxury studio, one, two or three bedroom suite, you will find that they each come with a gourmet kitchen, large lanai’s and in-room washer/dryer making it convenient for the whole ohana to enjoy like you’re back at home, but with services you will find at a luxury hotel.
If you guys have been following my Instagram, you will know that I went on an amazing trip with Spyder Activewear and Shape Magazine two weeks ago. (It was a pinch me moment for sure!) Amie Engerbretson who is a professional skier sponsored by Spyder, hosted us to a fab weekend in her hometown- Squaw Valley. Tahoe was one place that I’ve never been to that I’ve always wanted to visit. Flying in from Honolulu was a trek, but so worth all the planes and automobiles to get to our cabin for the fun-filled, bucket list weekend.
