Every year for our anniversary we try to go on a trip, we went to Italy for our honeymoon, last year we went to Seattle + Portland which was amazing and also our babymoon. This year I’m so excited to be heading to Maui! Aaron and I both have never been to Hawaii so I’m excited to go exploring and eat all the food. We’ll be taking Emma with us and though I have some anxiety about flying so long with her I know it’ll be a trip of a lifetime. We’re meeting some friends there as well that have a little girl and we’re all SO excited! High on my list is the Black Sand Beach, lots of fresh fish and fruit(obv) and watching the sunrise at Haleakala National Park. Do you have any recommendations for things to do/see/eat? I’d love your help! Extra points if it’s family friendly :)

In the meantime I’m trying to plan what I’ll be packing! Here’s some of my top picks. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect one piece suit and a nice everyday coverup. These look perfect.

I’m obsessed with that backpack! My friend Jane has it and I’m such a sucker for a good everyday leather piece so I’m excited to use this on our trip. Those sandals are also the comfiest. I have about 4 pairs from Nisolo and they’re some of my favorites. x

  • you MUST get this book: http://www.hawaiirevealed.com/maui-revealed/guidebook-app/. It has tons of stuff that are off the beaten path and free of crowds and other tourists. and get the actual book, not the app – it’s much easier to use on the fly! we use it every time we go to HI and have a new adventure every time!



    OOOOH awesome!!! Thanks so much this looks so helpful!

  • Awesome! I am trying to travel as much as I can! I’ve never been to Hawaii either! Cannot wait to see the pictures and get some good recommendations from you!
