Yoga is great.  Sarah is awesome.  Tomorrow is K’s birthday and I’m cooking surf and turf.  That’s Sarah above on our way to Well Bento for take out dinner and she’s carrying the cutest Bliss Lau bag.  Who, I didn’t realize, is from Hawaii.

Happy Inauguration Day:

Hawaiian locals use the shaka for various meanings, like “all right”, “cool”, “smooth”, etc.  It is also used to convey what locals in Hawai’i call the “Aloha Spirit,” a gesture of friendship and understanding between the various ethnic cultures that reside within Hawai’i. It can also be used to signal a “hello”, “goodbye”, ” ’till next time”, “take care”, “Alright!” The sign is often followed by waving as a greeting or acknowledgment. It can be used when driving as a signal of thanks to other drivers (for example, someone who stopped to let another driver onto the road from a driveway) – Wikipedia
