Aloha and greetings from Kauai! We’ve been here for only a day now, and I’m already in love. Today is one of my best girlfriends’ weddings and I’m so excited to be out here to celebrate with her. It’s a bit surreal to finally be here as we’ve been planning the trip since last November! Five of us rented a villa on Hanalei Bay and it’s pure magic/relaxation. For the rest of the week we’ll just be laying low and exploring, having what we’re calling a “grandma vacation” aka eating super healthy and going to bed early. I can’t wait. Lots of hiking, lots of sightseeing, experiencing the island’s culture, and so on and so forth. I’ll leave you with a quote I love: “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” Good, right?
Loved this interview with one of my best friends.
Sad news for my fellow cat ladies: your cat may not actually care about you.
I didn’t do a Labor Day Sale roundup this year, but the one sale I shopped was Rebecca Taylor. I look forward to her sale every year as she marks down sale an extra 40% off. (Use code LABORDAY40.) I ended up buying three things… this white dress, this white dress, and this pullover.
Cool and innovative ways to display indoor plants (I love the lightbulb!)
