Holiday Happenings + Seaside Snapshots

Merry Monday, everyone! We made it home from vacation late last night and I’m having serious sunshine withdrawal. The holidays in Hawaii should be an annual thing, don’t you think?

We had a very Maui Christmas with loads of fun in the sun including a trip to Haleakala National Park to watch the sunrise over the clouds, a gorgeous 30-mile bike ride down a mountain, a muddy ATV adventure plus a swim in a freshwater pond, many hours of R&R poolside, too many cocktails to count, a seaside gemstone massage at the spa, the best seafood you’ve ever tasted and yes, a few shopping trips to boot. The trip flew by and I’m having trouble coming back to reality. I never want vacations to end! Here are a few pics of the trip plus more holiday happenings.

And now we’re just days away from New Year’s Eve. I know you’ve heard it a million times already, but where did 2014 go? The last year was filled with so many wonderful moments and I can only imagine what 2015 has in store.

I always struggle with what to choose for my New Year’s resolution but this year I have some ideas in mind and can’t wait to share them with you. I tend to stress over picking the perfect resolution (and then of course, sticking to it) so I really want 2015 to be about reachable goals and stress-free promises. What are you wishing for in the New Year?
