i know, money can‘t buy happiness. nevertheless, money can buy helicopter tours on kaua’i. so yes, spending money on such adventures comes as close as it gets to buying happiness - just one more reason to keep traveling. 💸🚁
"On Valentine's Day Zach surprised me with a trip to Hawaii 😍 I was BEYOND excited! My father passed away three years ago and he had a huge love for sailing. ⛵ I used to go with him a lot, but I hadn't been since he had passed. I told Zach to not worry about sailing while we were there (the week in Hawaii was more than I could ever ask for!) ...Little did I know he already had everything planned! One afternoon he surprised me with a #sunsetsail . When we got on the boat and I was so emotional 😭 the whole feeling was unbelievable, it almost didn't feel real. Right when I thought of my dad there was a huge 🌈 over Maui and a 🐳 breached! I remember sitting there feeling like it was gonna take me a while to get over how perfect this whole experience was... having absolutely NO idea what was coming next!" Read how he proposed via the #linkinbio 💍The photos make us want to book a ✈️ to Hawaii! 📸: @haley_bateman

Pet Peeve/Fun Fact: Many times in my life I have been told by others that they have never met someone who makes 100% eye contact when talking to them, quite like I do. 🤷♀️ I never realized this until I was told, but it did make me research some things and what I found was that, “sustained eye contact can significantly raise oxytocin levels in both humans and animals” (think how ‘puppy eyes’ make you feel 🐶). Though my beliefs stem from two things: 1.) my upbringing & 2.) anecdotal evidence correlating to meeting people from all walks of life, all around the world, with wildly varying personalities and dispositions. To me, for the most part, I believe that eye contact is a sign of honesty, respect, and self-awareness. But also, it helps us as humans to actually *listen to hear* what someone is saying, rather than merely *listening to respond*. 👁Eyes are captivating not just because of their color - but because of the subconscious words that they hold within them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨Have you ever thought about the people, strangers even, who you pass by, make eye contact with - and their immediate response is a warm, genuine smile?! 😃 How great does that make you feel?? Those are my kind of GOOD VIBES people! 🙌🏼🤩🙏🏼
