Happy Sunday from Hawaii guys! We are having such a great time in Hawaii with the family, I am going to have a really hard time leaving the beach to come back to cold Utah! Hawaii is one of my favorite destinations and such a family friendly place for traveling! šŸ™‚ Focusing on time with family and enjoying the journey was one of my resolutions this year so I’m really focusing on disconnecting while we are here (although I’m still snapping so follow along at @hellofashblog!) Ā Speaking of resolutions, I think we are all trying to eat a little healthier this year, so I have been digging up all kinds of healthy alternatives to my favorite treats on ! Below are five that I cant wait to try:
