Recently a good friend made the move to Maui (from the east coast!) and ever since then I’ve been Hawaii dreaming. You can bet your bottom seashell I’m going to go visit her. Apparently she has avocado trees growing in her backyard. Anyhoo, her newest adventure got me thinking about what life would be like living on Maui. So I decided to do a little research into what a Maui beach home is like. (And it did not disappoint!)

It’s been too long since I’ve done a Meatless Monday recipe! I’m very excited about my Butternut Squash Bisque because not only is it delicious and warm for these cool autumn days but it’s also only 4 ingredients!! Aren’t minimum ingredient recipes the best?! No long grocery lists, no hoping you remembered to pick up all the ingredient. Just four simple ingredients and you are on your way to a creamy Fall soup.
Serves 3 – 4
I’ve always loved Halloween because it’s such a fun holiday! While carving pumpkins isn’t one of my favorite things (is it anyone’s?) I do LOVE the outcome. Especially if you can do it on a Martha Stewart level, like the pirate ship pumpkin below!! Check it out and many more coastal pumpkin ideas for Halloween.
One thing I love about a good beach house, besides the ocean views, is the salty breeze that gently flows through your home. This minimalist beach house in Malibu takes full advantage of not only the views but salty air as well.
I’ve said this before, and I’ll probably say it a million more times, I always prefer a beach house with less stuff. You don’t need a lot of stuff when you have a home on the beach, because who wants to take away from the ocean views? Now that I’ve said my peace! Feel free to take a tour through this gorgeous minimalist beach house.
