i count my lucky stars that i get to call hawaii home. it's probably my most beloved place on the planet. i think anyone that's been there could agree that life feels very calm + soothing there. you breathe a little deeper. move a little slower. it's uncomplicated in the best sense of the word. i took a little break mid wedding season to take my aven back for a visit. i wasn't really planning on posting these photos, so there's not a lot of rhyme or reason to them... but here's some snapshots of my visit home... my family... + quite a lot of aven.
