first things first — how awesome is that mango tree that is in my backyard?? i’m pretty excited to reap the benefits of those babies, namely in the form of mango smoothies. YUM. i’m ridiculously excited that summer is fast approaching (even though it feels like summer in hawaii 90% of the year) because work gets a little bit more mellow (or at least i hope it will) and the days are longer and sunnier. i’m especially looking forward to spending the weekends at the beach, riding our bikes to nearby eateries for dinner, and having friends over for barbecues at my place!
side story: see that bike in the picture above? we call her melon. reis bought that for me when i graduated from college and hand painted the whole thing in my favorite colors! i moved to hawaii two weeks after graduation and he surprised me with it so we could go exploring together! he’s not the most romantic of guys so i was super impressed and thought it was the cutest thing in the world.
