I couldn’t get over the countless lava rocks all over The Big Island of Hawaii that we saw throughout our honeymoon. It was our first time to Hawaii and although we hear that every island looks very different, The Kona side of The Big Island looked so much more like what I imagine Mars looking like than it did a lush paradise.The lava rocks looked especially beautiful, though, against the crystal clear ocean. Every night during our honeymoon, Phil and I would walk out to a point near the lava rocks and we would watch the sunset. It was such a breath of fresh air every night and it reminded us about how complicated our lives and careers have become.   DSC_0072 DSC_0065We were able to appreciate nature and the beauty of our surroundings and I only wish we could have stayed in that moment forever.  Now that we’re back in our normal everyday lives, it’s hard not to slip right back into our old patterns of overworking ourselves and never really coming up for air (being extremely busy drives both of us).  That said, I am going to try my best to keep a conscious effort to appreciate the little things.  Outfit-wise, I wore a comfy LBD with a plaid button down wrapped around it.  I braided my hair into a fishtail since it’s such a fun, quick look for dinner and I wore my Birks because they’re just so comfy.DSC_0051 DSC_0090 DSC_0086THE LOOK: Black Dress / Birkenstocks / Celine Sunnies / Flannel
