I’m back in LA and surprisingly very glad to be here. After 5 blissful days prancing around the soft Maui sand, floating in the warm water, admiring the sunsets, and watching two of my good friends get married, I was ready to come home. I missed my dogs restlessly and even though Maui was once my home, I definitely felt like an outsider visiting. Something just felt different. I was lucky enough to see some old friends on the island, which was truly the best feeling when feeling a little lost, and it restored a sense of familiarity. I won’t ignore the fact that wearing a bikini (and an equally cute cover-up) was a dream–because it was–island attire never gets old. I did my best to showcase my favorite looks from our trip but honestly blogging looks all day can be tiresome, not just for my photographer, but for me mentally. I almost felt as though I was “wasting” my trip searching for the perfect lighting and second to shoot a look instead of truly taking in my surroundings, which might have contributed to my growing pit of melancholia. Okay, okay, I wasn’t exactly melancholy on this trip; I just want to make sure I reinforce how important it is to not get caught up in the big picture (no pun intended) but instead focus on what is making up that picture-worthy moment, aka your loved ones and occasionally a drop-dead gorgeous sunset. With that said, I hope you enjoy my Maui Diaries. They are a true peek into how I spent my intimate vacation with my fiance.
