November Highlight Reel

Wow, can it actually be the end of November already?! Where did this month go? I know it’s a cliché, but time really does fly when you’re having fun! And fun this month was, the definite highlight being our weeklong trip to Maui. Needless to say, this month’s highlight reel is absolutely dominated by photos from that trip…

Molokini, Maui, Underwater PhotographyOne of the most memorable parts of our vacation was a snorkeling trip we took to Molokini Crater, a marine sanctuary a few miles off shore. It’s the perfect spot for snorkeling because the water there is clear as glass, and home to a reef full of marine life

Hawaii Hike, Hike, Land to Sea, Another highlight of the trip was a hike with all of the cousins. Some were more adventurous than others, but everyone still had fun

Lilikoi, Guava, Passionfruit Snack, Passionfruit, food in Hawaii, Vacation Food, FoodpornTropical fruit on a tropical vacation is an absolute must. We got this delicious little treat of papaya and lilikoi (that’s what they call passion fruit in Hawaii) at a cute little fruit stand on the side of the road, and I’ve been dreaming about it ever since

Maui, Hawaii, silhouettes when you’re on vacation you can actually stop to enjoy the little pleasures in life. And that’s just what we did, every evening, when we stopped what we were doing and walked down to the beach to watch the sunset

Gin Rummy Max’s cousin Ally taught us how to play gin rummy while we were in Hawaii. I forgot how fun it can be to just sit around the table with a great group of people and play a good old fashioned card game!

Maui, Hawaii Max’s Nana brought 40 of us to Maui to celebrate her 80th What an incredible gift! Not only for her, but also for all of us. It ended up being a big family bonding experience that all of us are going to remember for the rest of our lives.

Carlsbad, Fall Sunset, CaliforniaThe fall sunsets in Carlsbad have been unreal. Almost makes you forget that winter’s almost here…

General Store Maui, Hawaii, Poke Bowl, Tuna, FoodpornI think I could eat tuna poke every day for the rest of my life! (if I wasn’t afraid of getting Mercury poisoning…)

La Costa Coffee RoastersThere’s no better way to start the morning than with a warm cup of coffee and a delicious baked good

How to set the table for Thanksgiving, Table Settings, Decor Inspiration, Thanksgiving TableThanksgiving dinner with Max’s family is always a blast! His mom set the table so beautifully, it looked like something out of a magazine. So much to be thankful for this year!
