As I write this, I'm looking at lavender clouds rolling into shades of slate grey while pockets of golden light peeks its way through the opaque sky, wiping out all evidence of daylight as the sun shifts into dusk. The birds are singing their final song of the day and bursts of fragrant wind cools my sunburn cheeks. It's beautiful to witness Mother Nature doing her thing, especially when she's orchestrating her production over Honolulu's illuminated city buildings.
We landed on the island of O'ahu late last night, and it felt like "coming home". I've attached myself to this island, heart and soul, and couldn't be any happier to be back. Ron is traveling with us for part of the trip- I'm so anxious to show him all the things I fell in love with and experience everything that this island has to offer.
We kicked off the summer right. We awoke to the delicious smell of mom cooking a spread of pineapple sausage, eggs, muffins, and freshly brewed coffee. It brought back childhood memories of Nana cooking all of us a huge breakfast, and now, the torch as been handed down to Mimi to cook for her grandkids.
For our first full day, we ventured down the road to Kapiolani. It was raining on and off throughout the morning, but we were determined to make the most out of everyday, so we did what any "life squeezers" do...we danced in the rain, or in this case, we swam in the rain...
If rain is has bad as it gets, we're in for a fantastic time!
