Hello, Summer! Something I’ve been wanted to say all year. Also means hello to the scorching summer sun, to family and friends, and most importantly to home-cooked meals and the most delicious baked goods you could ever ask for.
A man in a coffee shop once asked me where I was from, and I answered simply with, “Hawaii.” He was mildly surprised and responded with, “Wow, it must be a vacation everyday.” I guess you could say that this is somewhat true, I’ve been packing each day to the gill, with hiking, going to the beach, spending time with my closest friends, eating my fill of strawberry shave ice with ice cream on the bottom + acai bowls topped with granola and honey, my favorites, along with the little, petty things such as summer school at the University of Hawaii and work.
You wouldn’t believe what today is, it’s the 4th of July, one of my favorite holidays! This means BBQ at my best friends house + watching fireworks on the Naval Base, already the 5th year in a row and counting; we’re making it a tradition. Cheers to a wonderful 4th of July, I’m sure I’ll be stuffing myself with 20 different pies and 10 different types of ice cream. Thank you, America. –Xoxo K
