Around Here...

Around here we've been so busy partying. It's kind of crazy actually. My niece had her epic 1st birthday complete with abundant handmade decor that we all have sore fingers from, and ʻono Hawaiian grindz that we're STILL eating a week later (no complaints about eating kalua pig,  laulau and poi all week).
We went out to Hana last Saturday morning for the party that night, and came back Sunday. We decided to head through Kaupo (my first time) where I could be heard moaning and groaning about  how my iPhone died the night before and I didn't have my charger so I got ZERO pics of the back end of Maui.
Around here we celebrated a quiet 2nd birthday for Noweo, who turned 2 on Sunday. We're planning a trip to the Maui Ocean Center tomorrow since half of last weekend was spent on the road. I'll be sure my phone has a full charge! We noticed that since her birthday, she's actually become MORE affectionate. She loves to give us GIANT hugs and hold onto us like she hasn't seen us in years. We are THRILLED with this new development. Her language is exploding and she LOVES to sing. I still can't understand most of what she says, but we're getting there.
Around here I'm a little drained from projects for family and friends. I'm happy to help, but man, when it rains, it pours! Seems like everyone needed something over the last two weeks. Now I'm looking forward to getting back to work on my own projects, and maybe learning how to manage how much I put on my plate a little better.
Around here I experienced an epic fail trying to make some changes to my website. After 2 days I gave up and put it back the way it was. Guess I can't do EVERYTHING myself. I think I was just doing it because deep down I'm afraid of making REAL progress.
Around here I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my STICKERS. Just shipped today from Hilo so maybe I'll get them tomorrow??? (fingers crossed!)
Around here I'm getting caught up on my favorite blogs. I fell pitifully behind and there's so much great stuff out there!
What's going on in your neck of the woods?
