The Big Island

Last Hurrah

Longtime mommy/daughter traditions include an annual trip at the end of August, right before school starts to one of our favorite places in Hawaii. Skipping all far excursions last year and savoring any new valiant travel accomplished this pandemic year, we included one more important person - making it a very special family journey, husband/father included.

Swimming all day with large, gentle sea turtles in remarkably see through water amongst other colorful sea creatures never gets old. Perfectly warm water, balmy weather, soft sand, tropical breeze, ripe papaya and macadamia nut sticky buns for breakfast, shaved ice whenever, mai tais and feast at a very proper luau, cultural activities to restore the mind, morning meditations in front of blue waves and black lava rocks, spacious outdoor island space to roam and play, noticing and paying attention to each sunrise and every incredible sunset...we are grateful to have participated in complete relaxation before summer officially ends.

Dedicated to dad

Thank you to my dad for his unwavering love, support and admiration - for building the solid foundation in which I have had the privilege of joining and allowing me to believe in myself, teaching me to do my best, reach for the top and always keep learning. Memorial day will be his memorial now. I love you, dad. Thank you to my family, Imogen, Jeremy, for always being by my side, for your love, support and for making my life so full and fun.
