Hawaii!! One week on the BIG ISLAND! SO much to share!!

Aloha Friends!!
As you may have heard, I just got back from an AMAZING trip to the Big Island of Hawaii.  My awesome family spoiled me with the trip for my big 40th birthday. 

Today I want to share all about my trip with you! To bring you along on my journey, as well as a diary of my trip for my own remembrance, I thought it would be fun to share a day by day summary of the places we went and the things we saw.
If you are planning to travel to the Big Island or if you have Hawaii on your list of places to visit, then I hope that you find today's post insightful.

We spent one week / 7 full days on the Big Island. This does not count the long full days of traveling on airplanes with layovers and delays to get there and back. Traveling was definitely not the fun part of the trip, but it was worth it.

We flew into the Kona Airport sometime during the night, made our way to our airbnb and went straight to bed.

My 40th Birthday!!!

Orange & White Bedroom

Happy March! 
As we get closer to Spring, I love to add color and bring new life into our home. The other day I cleaned up my bedroom and added pops of orange throughout the room. I thought it looked cute and so I wanted to share it with you today.

Our Cottage in the Snow

We woke up to a few inches of snow this morning, so this afternoon I bundled up and went outside with my camera in hand to take a few pictures of our little cottage.

Hawaiian Style Interiors

We have a trip planned to go to Hawaii coming soon and really that is all I can think about these days. 
I have Hawaii on the brain....big time!

I have been to Hawaii once before, in fact my husband and I were married in Hawaii on the island of Kauai but that was over 15 years ago.  This time we are going to check out the Big Island. I am the most excited to see the black sand beach and volcano.  So tell me, have you visited the Big Island before? If so, what were some of your favorites sites to see? 

I was chatting with a friend the other day, and she said to me, "I bet you come home from your trip and decorate your whole house is a Hawaiian style".   And I laughed and said, "I bet your right" :)
I always get inspired when traveling to new places.

But then that got me thinking, What does a Hawaiian Style Home look like to me?  So I headed to Pinterest and dug deep into Hawaiian Style and found the best of the best. And so today, I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.

Neutral ZEN Living Room & A New Rug

Hello, and Thank you for stopping by today!
It's been a while since I've shared pictures of our home here on the blog, in fact, I haven't shared our home at all this new year. The main reason for this is that I felt that I needed to take some time off from blogging and focus on my goals for the new year. After much thougth and several new Pinterest boards. I have discovered that I want to take our home in a new direction this year.

The phrase that keeps coming to me is Zen Living

Happy New Year Friends!
I want to start this blog post out today with a big Thank You to all of you who read and follow along here at The Wicker House. I don't know if I would still be blogging after all of these years if it weren't for your sweet comments and friendship.

Today's post is a really heart-happy one for me.  I get to take a look back at last year's blog post and see which ones were my most viewed post. I love passing on the projects and ideas that come to me, and to see that they were well-received makes me smile :)

I am also joining in with a Large group of blogger friends, who are all sharing their top 10 post for the last year. Not only is this fun to see what was trending for the year, but if you happen to be a blogger, or advertiser then this is a great reference to see what kind of post received the most views.
A big Thank You to the lovely Cami from Tidbits for putting together this fun roundup.

Here we go! Let's count down to my number 1 post for 2017!!!
