My Tribe

fullsizerender47 img_7757img_7758img_4451fullsizerender40

A couple weeks ago I took my family hiking on the Kuli’ou’ou Ridge Trail. I had done it just a few days before that, and I loved it so much that I just had to bring them to it.

When I did the hike, we were in anticipation of hurricane Madeline coming through. Luckily it passed by us, but we still experienced quite a bit of wind and overcast skies. When I got to the top of trail, I couldn’t see the view.

The day that we planned to go as a family, we were blessed with gorgeous weather. The best reward? The view + our shenanigans at the top! This was such a great family activity. I love hiking with my tribe!

We didn’t realize we were making memories. We just knew we were having fun.

A little peek into my hiking adventure this week just before hurricane Madeline came. Fortunately, she went around us.  Lester is on his way, but I hear he’ll miss us too. Good news all around 🙂

There’s no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this.

Olomana Peeks

Yesterday I hiked the Olomana Trail with my friends. There are 3 peeks on the whole hike and we climbed each one. It was a major adrenaline rush as there was some rock climbing involved that I have never done before!

The weather, apart from being extremely muggy (due to the recent passing of hurricane Darby), was perfect for us…aka no rain! I hope you enjoy these few photos from my adventure!

Just a Piece


It’s my birthday! This whole week has been a pre-funk leading up to the great event. I’ve been taken shopping, gone to multiple luncheons, and got my Hawaii state driver’s license which I aced by the way…ah thank you! Today’s agenda will consist of the beach and chocolate lava cake, because, what else is there?!

Today I want share what makes me tick. Of course there so is much more than these photos portray, but if I could give a brief glimpse of what makes me squeal inside, this is it.

Have a great weekend and think of me if you eat cake!

Case of the Mondays


It’s Monday. I have zero enthusiasm as I say that. I’m having a major case of the Mondays.

I spent the entire last week partying with my parents. I hadn’t seen my dad for 5 months, which is the longest I’ve gone without seeing him. My mom was here just 2 months ago, but it still seemed like it had been far too long. We had an absolute blast hiking, eating, and being beach bums. Now that they are gone, I just feel…meh.

If you feel meh like I do, maybe these photos will give you a little pick-me-up…some Monday motivation. I know I need it!

Have a great weekend loves!

2015 Dylan & Ceara LA

someone once told me to always live for the little things in life. live for 5am sunrises and 5pm sunsets where you’ll see colours in the sky that don’t usually belong. live for road trips and bike rides with music in your ears and the wind in your hair. live for days when you’re surrounded by your favourite people who make you realize that the world is not a cold, harsh place. live for the little things because  they will make you realize that this is what life is about, this is what it means to be alive.  -unknown

Be alive this weekend <3

Back to the Future

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! Being that it’s also the eve of my anniversary and Thursday, I decided it would be appropriate to do a throwback of some of my favorite moments with my man over the past 10 years!

As I was going through some of these old photos, I realized how many places that we’ve got to explore. I cannot wait for many more years of traveling and adventure with this one! Here’s to our future baby! But first, let’s take it back real quick…
