It’s MAY – how?! I’m so excited to be linking up with Anne for her monthly Currently series. If you have absolutely no clue what I’m talking about, pop over to her site and take a peek around — you WILL NOT be disappointed I love, love, love this series and today I’m joining her and some of the fabulous faces who frequent her internet space for this month’s Currently, which covers what I’m currently consuming, exploring, getting, hoping, and seeing. Let’s jump right in…
Last weekend we got to test out a new-to-us restaurant with some of our very dear friends and it blew me out of the water. It’s called Istanbul if you’re local to Honolulu and I’m pretty sure between the four of us, we sampled one of everything on the menu, starting with some of their insane (and pretty! cocktails. There is so much to choose from and my main dish was a cauliflower shawarma – I’m drooling thinking about it! If you go, definitely get the saganaki for a starter. Pan friend Halloumi, walnuts, apricots, and Hawaiian honey….! I’m already dreaming about when we can go back.
New Peloton classes. I’m getting more and more bike stamina, which is great, because when my bike first arrive, I had serious concerns. I have worked my way up to 30 minute rides, which probably seems really silly to many of you reading, but bike endurance for cycling and walking/running endurance are wildly different. I’m really proud with how far I have come!
Does getting in some good reading count? I love to read before I go to bed at night, but I’ve admittedly been really out of practice. Work and life has gotten the best of me in recent weeks, but I feel like I’m in a good pattern now. My latest read has been The Mother-In-Law and I have loved it! Lots of twists and turns – just the way I like it!
This next month passes really slowly. It’s my last month with my friend Max on the island and my heart is just really, really sad. We had breakfast together last week at the Royal Hawaiian – hello pink pancakes – and it was a stark reminder of just how much I’m going to miss her.
So many beautiful sunsets here in Hawaii lately! The nights have remained cooler (no complaints from me) and we walked the dogs when the asphalt has had time to cool off a little bit after the super hot days. Because of this, we get to enjoy a golden glow with lots of colors nearly every night right around the time we head out for our nightly stroll. It’s definitely a highlight of my day!
