Haleiwa Arts Festival 2015

We went to the Haleiwa Arts Festival yesterday (the last time we went was in 2012)!

It was a hot one. Lots of traffic too. But I’m SO glad we got our butts out of Kailua and up to the North Shore.

After circling the festival a few times, we stopped into Kris Goto‘s awesome booth! I loved ALL of her work! I plan on getting a few more prints, too. AND she was also the artist behind the festival’s 2015 tote bag!

Afterwards, we went to Haleiwa Bowls to grab some lunch.

We took our treats to a nearby shaded, grassy area and picnicked ;)

Buster was pooped. But he tried his hardest to stay up.

Lazy Sunday

We rarely relax, lay out on the weekends. Usually surfing, eating, hiking, running errands. Rarely do we hang out on the beach.. just the two of us.. I also think it’s because we are “doers”. We like to always be doing something. But I’ve been begging T to spend an afternoon on a beach. And that’s exactly what we did Sunday.

Looks like there’s a heart on my back ;)

Byodo-In Temple

T and I visited the Byodo-In Temple over the weekend. I absolutely loved it. Even though Hawaii is furthest from the “hustle and bustle” mentality, I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders when we arrived – it was that peaceful. I definitely see myself meditating here.

The temple was built in 1968 as a memorial to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii.

You can feed the koi. They go nuts for fish food. Fun fact – koi fish can live to be 100 years old.

We met a super friendly guy who offered to take our picture. Talked to us for awhile. Thanked T for his service in the military. Gotta love Hawaii!!
