These photos are from when David and I escaped to the big island for a couple nights!!! It was so fun 🙂 you know you’re having a good time when people ask if you are on your honeymoon. We stayed at the Four Seasons Hualalai and it was one of the nicest resorts we have ever stayed at. The grounds were incredible and it was so amazing we didn’t want to leave the resort. Which is saying something because we are usually adventure people who like to go see as much as possible. We had a scuba dive and a zip line planned as well as exploring black sand beaches but canceled all of it and decided to just relax at the resort. Even the gym was amazing and was giving me major inspo for when we have an indoor/outdoor gym one day. (I have always dreamed of having one at home! So convenient)
We chatted, took a nap on the beach, went on romantic walks, ate yummy food, went snorkeling in their pond (has over 4,000 tropical fish! soo pretty!), and chilled in the hot tub. Also our room had a steam room!!! So fun. I love steam rooms especially because my skin feels amazing after.
One thing I was thinking about yesterday is how crazy it is that one conversation can make such an impact in your life. I was thinking how happy I am with where we are in life in general and the journey we have been on so far and was thinking about all of the big steps along the way. For example when we randomly took a walk in Southern California in December when I was pregnant with Atticus and that walk led to sitting down to have a snack and having a conversation about one day starting a hair extension company. It was the first time we had the idea and I think now that we have our business up and running, how important that conversation was. Or when we were in Italy and conversation led to, “lets have a baby!” or when we sat on the couch one night and ended up at “lets move to New York City!” Looking back I am so happy we had all of these conversations. Thinking about all of this was kind of just a reminder of why we need to have more meaningful conversation and just talk because you never know where a conversation could lead you. Even if it is pointless conversation because that often turns into something meaningful.
David and I probably “talk” more than most couples only because we are together all day every day since we co work and co parent together. And since we really love what we do we often talk about work. Or the kids. Which I love to talk about – they are my favorite subjects to talk about. But while we were in Kona we decided to not talk about work or the kids and it was pretty fun (okay we did catch ourselves watching videos of the kids at night ha). We talked about really random things like “if you could make a documentary about anything what would it be and why?” His was about interviewing all of the people in New York City that keep the city running. Like the people who empty the trash every day, taxi drivers, subway workers, etc. We always talked about this when we lived there. How the city couldn’t function without them. Mine was internet trolls. I am truly fascinated by who are these people? Where are they from? What is the common denominator between all of these people and their need to be negative? Because sometimes I don’t think they believe they are being negative. I don’t know, it just really fascinates me and leaves me curious. But yeah it was fun to have alone time with my hubs and feel like we are dating again. As much as it makes me sad to leave the kids overnight, it is needed every now and again.
Anyways, another random rant for you! Have a good Tuesday!!!!
