Our last sunrise here on Lanikai. We planned and looked forward to this trip with Mom, so it has been bittersweet to be here without her. She was just here with us last August and she so loved this special place. But we’ve felt her presence in each sunrise, in this beautiful house, in the ocean, in the trade winds, in our hearts and on our minds, each and every day. We love and miss you, Mom.

Loving my vacay mani! If you like, go see Nana at Nails by Nana near Kahala Mall. She’s lovely! 💅 #nailart #yamakai (at Nails By Nana)

We hiked Pillboxes just after sunrise with two babies in tow and several of us were in slippers. Bam. #yamakai #nofilter (at Lanikai Pillbox Hike)

Ahhh… Yeah, I’m local, but I never take this stuff for granted. So excited to be on my favorite beach with the Yamas for a whole week. #lanikai #yamakai (at Lanikai Beach, HI)

I spend a lot of time just tying to keep up with her these days! Spent the last few days on Maui, now for a week on Lanikai. #YamaKai is finally happening! (at Kamaole Beach Park III)

Isa is now ni sai (two)! Here’s to running around barefoot for hours (but also loving shoes), making mushrooms and asparagus your favorite foods, chasing geckos and trying to kiss random dogs, acting out scenes from Totoro and Kiki, and, of course, nakie beach days. I love you, my little!
