Kalani and I both had the great pleasure of hosting our Mamas this winter back to back. Our days were filled with cozy house readings on the couch, Jackfruit eatin' Iao moments, beautiful sunsets on the beach, and so much more! I'd forgotten, personally how amazing it is to have a mom around. Someone older with that built in coziness and really great hugs. Truly moments to cherish :)

I have to admit, it's hard when the alarm clock goes off at 5 am and it's very dark and cold out. But every Saturday morning, one of us will rouse the other, put the kettle on, and soon everything is better with a warm mate in hand.
Selling at the farmers market has been a really fun project for the past month now. I used to frequent the market before we had a stand, but now that I'm there every week for the full three hours I'm getting to see this little market blossom into quite the social scene. I like it. I love seeing new faces become familiar friends, and trying out all the vendors I never had the chance to when I was just buying my produce.
In Byron, this past summer, every week we went to a farmers market and a big market. I was completely blown away by the amount of vendors and creativity that went into some of the stalls, and now slowly but surely, it seems Maui is starting to catch on! So if you have an idea, or haven't had the chance to check us out, get out here! Lets support out local economy :)

A Success! Could not have asked for a more amazing musician, or audience. A BIG Mahalo to Paia Yoga, for lending a truly acoustic space.
