Welcome to the FIRST video in our LIVING IN HAWAII VLOG SERIES!!!

I’m so excited to FINALLY share this video! We recorded this (and several others) almost a year ago!!! I can’t believe I’ve been hoarding these videos on my computer so long! A lot has changed since recording the first few videos, the biggest change is that we are now a family of three with our pup, Cilantro! I’m so excited to start vlogging our little Hawaii adventures with our little furry babe and most of all, I’m excited to keep sharing a bit of our life on these beautiful islands. After vlogging my 2016 Honolulu Marathon experience I knew that I wanted to continue vlogging but as I learned during marathon training, vlogging is HARD and VERY time consuming. So we took a few months to really think about what we wanted to commit to and we’ve decided that a weekly “Living in Hawaii: Our Weekend Adventures” series is a good fit!

On this “episode” I had to fly to Kauai for the weekend (to second shoot a wedding Friday evening and all day Saturday). We live on Oahu and since I’d have to stay overnight Eddie decided to join me in Kauai so we could explore the island the day after the wedding. Our Kauai weekend adventure involved searching for yummy plant-based food (typical), wild chickens and double servings of acai bowls.

Here are a few photos from our Kauai weekend adventure AND a list & links of the places we visited and enjoyed.

Thanks for watching, enjoy! xoxo, -M
