Weekend update: Our Japanese 4th of July!

 Happy (late) Independence Day, everyone!

Carl was off all weekend, but I worked three nights in a row. I was elated to be free from work in the morning and head to brunch.

  
One of our favorite cafes is Hale Noa, a Hawaiian themed brunch shop that always seems to be packed to the brim. It specializes in dishes like coconut french toast and Kalua pork eggs Benedict, my favorite.

While we waited for Hale Noa to open, we walked on the beach (code for selfies) 

    

Later that day, we headed out to the beach to barbecue with friends.  Once again, we brought out the ocean hammock and relaxed in the water. Carl had his snorkel gear to check out the underwater scene, and it felt like a perfect holiday. 
    
 
 I am beyond grateful for this guy, good friends, and a beautiful place to call home.  On this Independence Day weekend, it was such a blessing to celebrate all freedom with a great crew.
