A celebratory fall trip to Hawaii? Yes, please! While Stephen and I had originally talked about vacationing at Disney World or in Puerto Rico this year, his parents recently surprised us by announcing their decision to host a family trip to the Big Island in honor of their 40th wedding anniversary.
Not only am I incredibly excited to spend a full week exploring areas we only got to visit briefly during our honeymoon cruise a couple years ago, but I also love the fact that we’ll be traveling out during November – usually right around the time that colder weather starts to set in here in DC, leaving me itching for a little extra sunshine and warmth.

We haven’t officially lined up any activities as of yet, but a few things topping my wish list are to try my hand at stand-up paddle boarding, go hiking at Volcanoes National Park, and maybe even sneak in a bit of whale watching on the side, if it’s not too early in the season. Either way, I know we'll have no shortage of fun ways to pass the time!
Have you ever been to Hawaii? If so, what’s your favorite island/activity?
