I feel very fortunate to have been able to visit this beautiful island with the most incredible group of women. Below are a collection of photos from my trip to Maui.
We took a bus from where we were staying to explore Lahaina Town. .
We stopped at the best smoothie bowl food truck, Baya Bowls.
We went to the grocery store early in the week and we actually cooked our breakfasts and lunches ourselves! We took our homemade breakfasts very seriously.
I normally hate driving, but we decided to rent a car to drive to Iao Valley State Park one day, and it was so worth it. I loved driving the roads of Maui. Everything is so beautiful. We stopped to take some pictures in the road. with chickens. very safe.

I don’t think I can recommend The Road To Hana enough. The Hana highway goes through the tropical rain forests of Maui. The roads are incredibly narrow, curvy and gain miles of elevation, so we decided it was best to not drive ourselves. Not to mention there isn’t much cell service for directions up in the rain forests! A tour van picked us up around 6am to start our day exploring Hana. There are so many trails, waterfalls, and beautiful places to stop and explore along the way. We went around the entire east side of Maui exploring Hana and by the time we ended the tour, it was about 8pm.

The beautiful black sand beach and caves at Wai’anapanapa State Park.
The Road to Hana was without a doubt the best part of the trip!
And also the wonderful food!
Janea is always the best model!!
The lovely ladies that I’ve had the pleasure of traveling with.
Hawaii is my favorite place I’ve ever visited and hope I get the chance to go back soon!
Christmas in New York City.
Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. Enjoying the leftover pumpkin from my pie for breakfast. I find any excuse to add pumpkin to anything and I highly recommend these pumpkin pie oats!

A weekend trip to Boston.
We spent a long time in this bookshop. One of my favorite finds on the trip.
We each checked out a book we had been reading and sat in the courtyard to read while we waited out a rainstorm.

A beautiful sun drenched restaurant off of Bedford Avenue. I am a sucker for plants and home fries. Definitely a new favorite brunch spot. (eager to try out their dinner menu soon!)

Happy Valentines Day!
The Butcher's Daughter. Lower East Side, Manhattan.
Let me just say this waffle was delicious. And it happened to be gluten free and dairy free. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that 100% of The Butcher's Daughter menu is actually dairy free and vegetarian! I don't eat meat or dairy (I do eat eggs!) so I was a happy camper.
Also, our waiter Greg had amazing style.
