makeup and macarons—remnants from yesterday’s photo shoot @verilymag 😁 (at Bryant Park)
Can’t put into words what it feels like to watch little J play where I spent the first 18 years of my life. LA, you’re awesome. See ya in 6 months! ✌️

To reach a port, we must sail. Sail! Not lie at anchor. Sail! Not drift. —FDR⛡️
If you look closely, you can see the clouds’ reflections on the ocean and the sea and sky matching perfectly. Insane. ☁️☁️☁️
I saw an old friend at church today. She said I make traveling with kids look easy. It’s not. But it’s not hard either. I didn’t get to watch a full movie or have a cocktail. But I did get to eat my lunch, have an ice cream sundae, take a 1-hour nap, and read the full design issue of @entmagazine with a baby in my lap. Thanks to the ever accommodating folks @united for always offering to change seats so our family can be together, giving this nursing mama lots of extra water, and holding the baby whenever I need to pee. πŸ˜‚ Love you guys!
Now taking recipe requests for Hawaiian favorites. Leonard’s malasadas, Liliha’s cocoa puffs, Zippy’s chili, Thanh’s avocado smoothie, Bubbie’s green tea mochi ice cream, or Ono Seafood’s ahi poke, anyone? πŸ˜‰ I’ll publish them @verilymag!🍴
Manila nui loa for everything, dear family. Aloha `oe, until we meet again (in November!) πŸŒŠβ›…οΈ (at Outrigger Canoe Club)
