Finally getting around to sharing our photos from our baby moon in Maui a couple weeks ago. So thankful for these photos because the trip went so quickly, it already feels like it was all a dream. Aside from Maui’s amazing beaches, one of the dreamiest locations we visited along our journey was this sunflower field just outside of Wailea.
This 14-acre sunflower field is not only beautiful–it is actually part of the largest biofuel project in the state. We were lucky to see the flowers in full bloom–especially since they may not last much longer.
On this particular day, we were driving all around the island so I wore a comfy denim swing dress I scooped up from Target (pretty sure it was less than $20!). While it’s not a maternity dress, it has been roomy enough throughout my pregnancy so far. This dress is a bit older but here are a few others I can recommend: (Here), (Here), (Here) and (Here). I also brought along my favorite backpack of the moment by Rebecca Minkoff. This adorable backpack proved to be the perfect day bag for our trip. It fit everything I needed but wasn’t too bulky. I especially love its small size and cute patches. Looking forward to using it at some upcoming music festivals Phil and I are attending in LA too.
From the sunflower field, Phil and I decided to explore the coast of Maui. We somehow ended up driving on one of the craziest roads we’ve ever seen. It had one lane and it wove around western Maui clockwise in canyons along the water. At first, it felt like an amazing adventure–but then when the road continued to wind around and around for what felt like hours (but I think was probably about two) and there wasn’t a car in sight, I realized we had definitely gone the wrong way. The winding drive definitely did not help my morning sickness but let’s just say it’s something Phil and I will never forget.
On the way back to our hotel, we stopped at Ululani’s Hawaiin Shaved Ice. I’ve never had a sweet tooth and was not as excited to try this as Phil was but OMG it was amazing! If you ever find yourself in Maui, you must go here! I only wish we went more. The flavors are made with real fruit and the ice is super smooth–not to mention it’s the furthest from a snow-cone that I can imagine.
