Summer is all about Vacation right? V A C A T I O N! The word seems like a foreign concept at this point. But I had planned this, planned this for months and I wasn't about to let a 1000+ email inbox get in my way.
First stop, Sonoma Valley. My best friend was getting married and we had to send her off in style.
Above is our AIRBNB we rented (super affordable and absolutely lovely).
A must see -- Scribe Winery.
There were heaps of lavender at the Valley of the Moon Vineyard.
We dined at Bouchon on the patio ( and obviously scarfed some meats & cheeses).
Next up, Maui.
We stayed in the amazing town of P'aia an old plantation town.
The shopping was fantastic and I loved this little gallery / store PUKA PUKA
we found a red sand beach.
Then there was of course the wedding at Haiku Mill
And the bride in her beautiful Monique L'Huiller dress
My handsome boyfriend braving the humidity in a wool sweater.
My other wifey, Alisa and I played bridesmaid for the day.
We all got ready in the "cane house" which was a shabby chic dream come true.
The ceremony was truly magical (as was the aftermath.)
