it’s ironic that even though my life turned into one big nine-month weekend, it took going back to work for just a few days to truly appreciate “time off.” this weekend, christy was home on maui, and i got to spend my weekend hanging out with her, which was really nice. we visited surfing goat dairy with our moms, and the following day decided to visit the old maui high school in hamakuapoko.
