hawaii // part 1 of who knows how many parts

a few years ago we took a late january/early february trip to maui & learned for the first time just how amazing an escape to a tropical island can be for someone in the dead of a rainy PNW winter.  we were lucky enough to repeat that this year on a trip to o'ahu in the middle of january.  fruity drinks, shave ice, warm salty ocean air & white sandy beaches... all in january?  yes please.

here is a picture dump from the first few days.  i'll be sharing more at some point & it might be a lot more.  you've been warned but it's hard to be choosy when looking at these pictures continue to warm me up from the inside out.

it was a blast.

a little bit of fall // mostly photos

i love fall.  i'm obsessed with the changing leaves & the crisp air & going back to school & the cozy evenings.  we wake up in the morning & turn on the fire while the boys get ready for school & we're just in a good rhythm.  except for maybe right now where i'm up posting random pictures at 12:30 am & should probably be sleeping but i digress.

it's a hard time for me photographically because i lose light earlier in the day, we're challenged with more rainy days which keep us inside & i find myself just wanting to take pictures of leaves over & over.  so sorry if you get sick of seeing that.  i'm still doing my p365 for the most part but am in one of those creative funks for my personal photos... we all know the answer to that is to just keep on shooting, right?  so i will.

in other news, things are great.  parker is loving kindergarten & elliot loves his preschool.  parker is learning to read & elliot is working on potty training... still, two months later.  we had a great halloween.  elliot chose to be a skeleton (again) and parker picked out the most ridiculous buddy the t-rex dinosaur costume.  it was amazing.  it poured buckets on halloween but that didn't stop us from getting out & getting two pumpkin pails full of candy.  the boys had a blast & it was fun seeing so many of our neighbors out getting soaked & having a great time.

sam & i just keep on doing the same ol' same ol'.  we have nice relaxing evenings during the week but kinda live for our little adventures on the weekend.  lots of hikes, road trips & city adventures keep us busy.  i am in a workout funk though & reaaaaally need to find a way to get exercise back into my life.  i mean it's like MY THING.  and yet i've literally gone months without a regular routine.  who am i even?  work is (kinda) starting to slow down & i hope to light a fire under my own bottom to get back into shape.  just kinda dreading the process that is gonna be.  it always sucks to start over!

anywho, that's all i really have to say about that.  here are a few of my favorite pics from the last few weeks... enjoy!
