The best part about coming home from a trip is coming back to this! Whenever I come back from a trip I always feel like I get to fall back in love with Hawai'i.. and my bu. (; Although these photos were taken back in September.. I thought they were the perfect representation of being home again [and the perfect time to share them]. All I really need is a little ocean and a little quality time with my man and my heart is content. Simple as that.
And after being in a relationship for over 7 years [and counting!] I think it pretty damn important to go on dates and spend time together. It's easy to forget about nurturing the relationship, doing special activities together, and being intentional about the way you spend your time when you've been together for so long. All relationships are hard work. And I'm no one to give advice.. but I always have slumps in my friendships and intimate relationships if I don't put effort into them. No one likes lazy. I think it's super important to keep that spark alive. That always requires a little work. After all, love is a choice!
These photos are just a reminder that after 1 day, 12 months, and 50 years together.. spending time together should be just as thrilling as the first kiss. Even through the good, the bad, and the boring. And that Hawai'i is so damn beautiful too! Right?!
Playdate. And to keeping the love alive!
Mahalo to The Binney's and Crystal for lettings borrow this special little yellow Wa'a!
