I left my Heart in Hawaii

Earlier this month, I spent an amazing week in Kona, Hawaii for Crystal's birthday. The Fairmont Orchid Hawaii was gracious enough to let us stay at their beautiful property and it was nothing short of magical. We spent our days on their private beach, snorkeling with giant seas turtles, paddle boarding and drinking pina coladas.  The hotel itself had a seaside charm with modern rooms, a pool, three restaurants, a gym and a golf course. My favorite part by far was the complimentary breakfast buffet they had every morning and watching a spectacular sunset every night from the beach.

Our itinerary not only consisted of lots of r&r, but many physical activities were planned from hiking, to off-roading, to spelunking. We saw some of the most amazing sights which I captured on my Instagram. I've recapped them all for you below.
