Maui through my eyes | June 2011

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I've finally gotten around to posting pictures from Hawaii and it's only taken me 7 months. Woohoo! Last June, I spent a week in Maui, Hawaii and fell in love all over again.. with Hawaii, that is. There is just so much to love about this beautiful island. I witnessed one of most amazing sunsets I've ever seen (I left it untouched so you can see just how beautiful it was). I went to a luau (photos coming later). Ahh.. it was all so beautiful! Can't wait to go back!
