Aloha, friends! Just got back home (again!) after spending a relaxing week on the mainland with my family. We celebrated Thanksgiving Day in LA at Alex & Sarah’s, eating way too much while watching the Cowboys & Niners get worked by the Eagles and Seahawks … pretty sad. We then headed to Vegas for a […]

Aloha, friends! It’s that time of year again and it finally feels like Fall has arrived! It definitely feels a lot cooler now that the tradewinds are back along with the refreshing Manoa morning mists.

Aloha, And so for the first time this year, I feel like my life is finally getting back to normal … woke up early to a steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee and watched the sun come up over the valley. There’s nothing more soothing than the quiet solitude of a cool Manoa morning … […]

I guess I lied. My previous post was not my last post for two months. Haha, I’m sorry! The title of this entry is very fitting because the journey continues on a couple of fronts, starting tomorrow. My two-month journey continues around the U.S. with a stop in Los Angeles tomorrow. Alx’s journey continues as […]
