What a week it has been! I have been traveling with my boyfriend and family all over the big island of Hawaii and have not had phone or internet for most of it. It was nice to take a little break from all of the usual technology that fills my every day life. I will be sharing some pictures of my adventures here in the following week. We leave tomorrow, and I am completely dreading it. Not even a small part of me is excited to return to Colorado in the middle of winter!
These pictures were taken right outside of our apartment in Kailua-Kona. I am in love with all of the Bougainvillea (umm, hardest word to spell EVER) bushes with brightly colored flowers in bloom all over which inspired this outfit. To get the hairstyle, I put my hair in a high pony tail, then braided it and wrapped it around, pinning it in place with bobby pins. Super easy but keeps the hair off my neck in this hot weather. As for the bow tie, it is a vintage scarf I folded over and tied in a bow under the collar of my blouse. Yes, I understand that I resemble a clown with my bright colors, polka dots, and bow tie, but who cares! I am on vacation.

I am off to make the most of my last full day here! Anyone know of any environmental jobs in Hawai'i where I could start tomorrow? I may even be willing to sling burgers for the rest of my life if it meant staying in paradise, and thats coming from a vegetarian!
