May is definitely one of my favorite months. It starts to really feel like summer, the days are wonderfully long, and we have a few celebrations. All of those factors add up to the beginning of our travel season. I love dreaming and planning our quick trips and longer vacations, thinking about what clothes I’m going to pack, and kicking my motivation to eat and live healthier into high gear. Overall, I get so excited to be with my favorite people in my favorite places.

Mother’s day is in May and I’m looking forward to celebrating with a visit with my mom; we always have a lovely dinner and lately we’ve both had the crafting bug, so I’m researching some more boho-style crafts (we already made this amazing wall hanging) we can do together. If you’re looking for a perfect gift, anything Jo Malone is always a big hit ;)

Our first big trip of the year is this month, to Maui, my happy place. Although we went to Kauai (and did a magical hike) last year, Maui is our favorite Hawaiian island and has the perfect balance of adventure, relaxing, good eating, and fun. This trip, we are planning to do the road to Hana again, and finally try Mama’s Fish house. I’ll definitely be posting some Maui guides after we return.

So, this month, my mood is a little bohemian, a little crafty, and a lot of wanderlust. For more inspo, check out our "springtime" Pinterest board.
