Happy Birthday! Turning 27 in Hawaii

Yesterday, I received some tragic news about a member of my extended family.

Welcome to our Honolulu home!

We first dabbled with apartments abroad while in Buenos Aires, where we were lucky find this colorful one bedroom in the trendy neighborhood of Palermo Soho.

We’re in Honolulu for the next three months! And here’s what we’ve been up to: weddings, apartment-hunting and a job!
