This week we will be celebrating our 11 year anniversary!! It’s incredible to say, and a little hard to believe, that we started our journey together over a decade ago. Although, the time has flown by it has been a long wonderful journey together, filled with such depth, growth, fun, love and adventure. In planning how to best celebrate our anniversary, we got to thinking about last years anniversary trip and decided to share it with you here on our blog.
Sebastian secretly planned a trip for us to spend a few days in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island. The trip was a complete surprise and he only let me in on the secret a few hours before our plane left Kauai. I was so incredibly excited, I had the biggest smile ear to ear all the way to the Big Island.
Driving into the park we were taken back by the beauty and mystic of our surroundings. Fern tree rain forests and the misty clouds creeping over the mountain letting us know we were in a very special place. Little did we know that our visit happen to coincide with a major geological event. The lava lake that sits inside the Halema’uma’u Crater, located in the park, had reached a record high and you can witness huge plumes of lava bubbling within the crater. Of course, this was incredibly exciting to hear but we knew the best time to view this spectacle was at night. We spent the day exploring the vast park and enjoyed a few incredible hikes. It is amazing to be surrounded by such unique landscapes, from pristine rain forests to harsh barren lava flows. One of our favorite hikes was the Kilauea Iki trail, it was stunning from start to finish.
The hands down greatest highlight of the trip was to witness the erupting lava lake in the craters center. There was an immense buzz around the creater lookout and we had to drive over a mile away just to get a place to park. There were so many locals and tourist alike flocking to see this rare and amazing site. Seeing lava, bubbling and shooting out from the earths core was one of the most amazing experiences and something we will never, ever forget. Not only that but there was a local halau that sung Hawaiian Chants, which together with the bubbling and shooting lava was deeply moving, it gave me goose bumps. We felt like we were transported to the earths beginning and witnessing this creation, it was something so powerful and profound it truly can not be put into words, so we'll just leave it at - it was unforgettable.
Enjoy our photos we captured from our anniversary trip and cheers to celebrating life with the one you love!

"Happiness is not something you postpone for the future,
it is something you design for the present."
One of our major goals and places we are focusing our intention this year is to design the life we want to live, and making sure we take time for ourselves, outside of 'work'. We love what we do so much, that we can happily get so focused and driven that we can not find time for all the things that inspire us (which there are many.) This year, aside from all the amazingly inspirational things we have going on with Sea Light Studios, we are making it an even more of a priority to find balance in our lives and go out and explore our magical island and do all those adventures we dream of. And to share it with you all! You are letting us into your lives, so we are letting you into ours. We have been dreaming up our year, both creatively and personally, and wanted to share with you a stunning hike we recently did to one of our favorite spots on our lovely little Garden Island. It is about an 8 mile hike roundtrip and something you really want to devote your whole day to, so you can soak up all the goodness along the trail. And we did just that. We planned on our next day off to do this hike. We packed our bags and took off early in the morning for our adventure. We are so happy we did as it truly is so rejuvenating to be out in nature, especially Kauai nature, and something we both just love so much. The stillness that rustles in the jungle as you walk through, the air that flies off the waterfall that fills your lungs with the freshest oxygen, the smell of the damp earth as you walk through the fern covered trees, or how about the light that dances through the jungle. We will have lots more of our Kauai adventures to share with you this year, but for now, enjoy this awesome one to Hanakapiai Falls.
