modernmaven See those two out the window, enjoying dinner on the lanai? I cannot imagine doing this life without them. It was one year ago that we told my mom and dad about our plans ....leaving everything behind and having our own adventure in Hawaii. And now, here we are. We've been here almost 7 months. Some days It still doesn't register that we've actually done this. I am so thankful to be experiencing it all with them. #GrayHawaiiLife 3d
  •   modernmaven Thank you so so much Kellie! We've sure had our share of struggles with this change but it's pretty awesome to look around and realize that we've actually made it happen. I hope you are having an amazing holiday season @kdscope 3d
  •   modernmaven Thank you Katrina @calikatrina 3d
  •   modernmaven Aw Erika! I am beyond happy we've had the chance to meet and chat and hug in person. It makes me so happy. Yes yes yes, we will one day enjoy the Hawaiian beach together @tripleedub 3d
  •   modernmaven Thank you Amber. Some days it seems so surreal. But it's a beautiful day today and I am so thankful to be here @amber_lucera 3d
  •   modernmaven No no no...you are definitely the best. Hoping ya'll make your way over here some day!! @courtneysnowden 3d

modernmaven One of my favorite ladies @heatherthegray , asked me what I am doing today...I am playing catch up it feels like. I've had so many fun projects on my Christmas to do list but have fallen short due to either time or challenges with getting supplies here on a island. And there's only a few days until Christmas! How did that happen?!? Anyway, today, Channing and I are doing our best to craft the day away by working on our @caravanshoppe printable trees and elves. They are so cute!!! And I only need a few supplies ️. 4d

It's such a fun book, Libby...so well done 4d

modernmaven We are feeling the Mele Kalikimaka spirit over here. I can hardly believe this home is the same one we walked into a few short months ago...with dark ceilings, no flooring, green walls with spiderwebs strewn across them, a thick layer of black volcanic dust on everything, dead geckos in the corners...we've come unbelievably far in this renovation and I am ever so proud of what this space has become. Especially while being on a tight budget, limited on resources and living here in the middle of the renovations. #grayhawaiihome {if you are curious to see before photos, they are on my blog under Our Hawaii Life} 6d

modernmaven It's a beautiful morning here in this tropical winter weather. It's hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner. We're enjoying a snack on the lanai after watering all of our plant babies. I am quickly getting pegged as "the crazy plant lady" over here 😬. I can't help it! Everything just grows so amazingly here. {that's #widn dear @mikobowen ... What are you ladies up to today @nobigdillkaty @collecting_memories @danihampton @mrslaurgrant ?} 6d
