Hawaii Photo Diary- Day 1 and 2

For my 26th birthday I decided to travel to Hawaii with Izek and Jesse. I very much needed a break because I was going mad, slaughtering myself with work. It was a last minute arrangement because we originally planned on going to Maldives, but Izek’s passport picture was inconceivable to get in a small amount of time. We tried going to Walgreens, but he was anxious and afraid of the photographer and wouldn’t sit still. We were left with no passport picture come August 20th.

We booked everything the night before we flew out. I went all out because I wanted to make sure that this vacation was one that we would never forget.

I’m sitting in the balcony of our room as I write this post, with the fresh breeze of the Pacific Ocean grazing my body and drinking my morning coffee. This week came and went so fast, but I’m just thankful to God he blessed us with this wonderful experience. We did many different activities, but we spent most of the time with each other at the beach because that’s what made Izek happy. He kept saying to everyone he passed in the hotel lobby right after, “I swam, I swam!” Just seeing him so happy made my heart melt.

We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton, which is in Kapalua/Lahaina. Upon arrival they greeted us with Hawaiian beads over our heads and even upgraded our room to a suite because we had the same last name as the lady who checked us in. The resort is huge and beautiful and the lawn is immaculately manicured, with the rooms exceptionally clean. The lady who cleaned our room would also come back in the afternoon to close our curtains, undo our bed, dim the lights, and empty our trash a second time. Not to mention how friendly everyone was to us.

There’s a lot to be said about this trip, but I’ll leave it at this for part 1 of my picture diary. I hope you all enjoy the pictures and thank you for reading! XO

    It’s beautiful to see you happy, having a good time with your family, and also taking a break to perhaps refocus on your favorite values (something I enjoy doing around my birthdays).
    Your photos are very pretty, as are the shots with your endearing son. He is growing up quickly!

    Your Daily Break

  33. You look great but you really suck at writing. I can see how hard you are trying to use words that you don’t know the meaning of. It’s almost as if you used a thesaurus. A lot of the words are used incorrectly. Just saying.

  34. you have the most beautyfull family :)

  38. You’re so lucky to be able to go to Hawaii! It’s been a really long time since I’ve visited there and seeing these pictures makes me want to go there for a vacation!

  39. You look lovely! Have fun in Hawaii!

  40. Hi Dulce! I love your photos and clothing its all so beautiful, Hawaii looks beautiful too! I have always been afraid of Hawaii but your photos of Hawaii look so beautiful that I do not think I’m afraid anymore! I wish that in the future somehow my family can get together and go somewhere beautiful like Hawaii. Right now though were having a tough time paying bills and keeping our apartment. I do my best though to make everyone happy and hopefully my mom will get a nice job soon where there will be no managers that are corrupted and
    she’ll get the money she deserves. I think it makes no since that people are on the news that work at fast food places are saying they should get more money when my mom did more work than them and got paid less, shes worked at Target. I just think there really ungrateful be should be happy that they get 11 dollars an hour.

  41. Hello Dulce I just really wanted to say everything you do for us is a dream come true thank you for making videos, doing your wonderful giveaway, taking time out the day when your busy to tell about a super cute outfit and keep us updated on what’s happening and what your doing.

I’ve never been to maui and when I heard you say you were gonna lay by the pool… I thought: “You went to Maui for the pool!?” lol Until I saw the pictures of that pool. Amazing!!! But I still think the Ocean’s the best there. :-) Looks like you had a blast!
