The weather has been so beautiful that I’ve spent nearly every moment outside. Sunshine! I think my winter-induced rickets is subsiding.
Court and I have been reminiscing over what we were doing last year at this time and feeling a little nostalgic…
We were at a bed & breakfast, Ka’awa Loa, in south Kona.
Our Easter Sunday breakfast was definitely one to remember – we had quite the spread!
The best part:
TARO FRENCH TOAST.
I know, right?
Then we went to Sam Choys for dinner.
Some weekend highlights:
-reading, journaling and sipping tea in the backyard
-long walks – I experienced a moment of magic when two butterflies appeared and swirled around me. It was strange to see butterflies in March; they were the only ones I saw during the weekend. Hmm…
-a running date with Court. Here he is carb-loading for a 5k…Hahaha.
-walking around barefoot in the yard (have you ever heard of ‘earthing’ or ‘grounding’? The concept is simple: you walk around barefoot in nature so you can absorb free electrons through your feet. It sounds a little ‘woohoo’, but I like the idea. Since we’re always wearing shoes and walking on asphalt, we’re less ‘grounded’. Disconnected. Does that make sense? Anyways, it feels good – it’s a nice relaxation technique.)
-pampering aka. cleaning up my running wounds. My poor feet! I need a professional pedicure.
Court requested Amanda’s chocolate chip banana bread - this recipe is amazing. Make it!
New favorite store-bought ice cream. Oh man is it ever good. It’s coconut milk, but you wouldn’t know it’s non-dairy. I find most brands of non-dairy ice cream to be more like rock hard ice milk, but not this one – it’s so creamy and chocolatey!
-Solo dinner for one
Coconut flour waffle topped with butter, cinnamon and warm berries + hot chocolate. It was just what I wanted!
I hope your Easter weekend has been filled with some of your favorite people, treats and activities.
