This weekend felt like a week. You know those kind? They feel so loooonnnngggg and relaxing? I don’t know if it was because of the rainy weather on Friday that set the stage to just chill out or if it was because I had 3 days off in a row with some of my favorite people, but it was an awesome time of rest and relaxation.
See those big smiles? That’s me and my sister Liv, and we’re smiling because we know what’s ahead of us for the holiday weekend–lots of hanging out, laughing and eating delicious food.
To start us off, Chris cooked an amazing Paiea feast. This prep area was pretty impressive in my book–I wouldn’t even know where to begin to know how to do this.
The next day for round two, we had lobsters at Chris’s parent’s house. I want to be a lobster person, really I do. I want to be someone that squeals with happiness when it’s on the menu, but…. I’m not. Even still, it was pretty great to watch everyone go to town on them and enjoy every buttery-dripped moment.

Sunday, I took a break from the eating marathon and sat down to paint for the first time in the new house. I missed it so much and it felt so good to get back in the groove–I love, love, love my new studio (aka the back bedroom). It’s a dream come true to have the space to explore and get lost in colors again.
