Birthday Girl

 I celebrated my 28th birthday this week, and I've realized it only gets better and better! The old adage "it only gets better with age" is true! I had the chance to celebrate with all of the important people in my life- golfers, foodies, coaches, high school classmates and in general, people that love to laugh over food and drink. Those are the best kind! Some were not there in person, as they currently live on the mainland, but their calls and texts made my heart smile. Thank you, guys!!!

Since I'm born on Mother's Day, M&D and I bonded over some delicious food over at Morimoto's at The Modern in Waikiki. It was our first time there, so after we dined, we walked around the Sunrise/Sunset Pool Bar. It was a gorgeously-warm night. Btw, our favorite of the night was the Live Octopus Carpaccio. Highly recommend, folks!

The next big thing on the list was my birthday shindig with my closest friends at The Pig and The Lady, which was just wonderful! It was perfect- lots of warm smiles, chitter-chatter and food galore. Did I mention 5+ orders of that huge Bone Marrow?! Eat your heart out!!! Couldn't have asked for anything more.

I ended my birthday week just the way I wanted to- playing golf! A little tired and hungover, but nonetheless, it was a beautiful day. Something to be so thankful for. 

Thank you all for the Birthday love and well wishes!!!
