10 Things Loved in April

Wow that went quick! April marked my first trip back to Portland for work. And boy did I work – almost around-the-clock for three straight weeks, including weekends. I did have time for meals out with friends, coffee with my parents and an afternoon of shopping though. Phew. I was so happy to get home. Here are 10 things that brought me joy in April:

  1. Tasty breakfast spots on Oahu – especially ones that serve Portland coffee like Town and Morning Glass.
  2. Hiking to Maunawili Falls.
  3. Having a “fruit corner” instead of a fruit bowl.
  4. Cooking with beets – my favorite veggie.
  5. Kayaking to the Mokes.
  6. Shopping ’til I dropped at the Columbia and Adidas employee stores. What? I needed more outdoorsy gear – it’s for my health!
  7. Dreaming at Rejuvenation Hardware – love this place.
  8. Running along the waterfront. I have missed you, Portland.
  9. Seeing my lovely parents, even for just a short while.
  10. Making up for lost time at my favorite Portland breakfast spots.

So, what do you think?
