It’s finally warming up a bit in Seattle.
Truth be told, I’m not a biggest fan of summer 😬 Mostly because our apartment heats up so much that this homebody gets pretty miserable staying indoors. I’m sticky and tired by late afternoon.
Especially late spring when you don’t need a down jacket any more but you’re not sweating profusely walking around in the sun.
65F°, lightly cloudy, gentle breeze… That’s heaven for me.
You know, if I were a vegetable, I would be a lettuce. Not a tomato or cucumber. Just plant me in a cool shaded area. I’ll get bitter and go to seed as soon as the temperature goes above 75F°.
I often browse my website just to enjoy the cheerful artwork and daydream for a few minutes (that’s not weird, is it? 😝).
These are some of my cards that reaffirm my love of spring!
May the spring be always in your heart 🌸
I love Hawaii!
Oh the sunshine and the warm, plumeria-scented breeze… I could feel every cell in my body relax as soon as we landed.
My mom and I met in Oahu, HI (it’s about the same distance from Japan and Seattle) and spent a week hanging out, eating, shopping, and sightseeing during the last week of January.
Enjoy some snapshots from our vacation 🌴🌺🌈
We went on a dolphin watching tour. We’re holding a fake dolphin skull 😂 We did see dolphins and a humpback whale! It was amazing.
Bishop Museum. Stunning exhibits & buildings.
Beauty of the building itself is worth a visit!
Waimea Valley & Falls
In the hibiscus garden
Waimea Fall. No we didn’t go swimming 😉
Beautiful flowers everywhere at the Waimea Valley Botanical Garden
Ladies on the beach in North Shore. There are lots of wild chickens and roosters roaming around once you’re outside of Waikiki.
Kitty chilling in old Haleiwa town
We watched a beautiful sunset in North Shore. My favorite sight in Hawaii ❤
I made a couple of art inspired by the beauty on the island.
I’ve only been back for a few days, but I miss it SO MUCH 😢 I wish I could’ve stayed there a little longer. Sigh.
I hope I’m lucky enough to visit the paradise many more times. If you go (or live there, jealous!!), soak up the sun for me 😉
