offline life kept me unexpectedly preoccupied these past few days so, combined with feeling less than inspired of late, i must apologize for my lack of posts this week. one of my highlights was befriending this delicous garlic bread recipe by the barefoot contessa in the kitchen. chop, sauté, spread, bake & enjoy!

some of my happiest memories while growing up on oahu took place at the old timey movie houses when lines wrapped around the building on opening weekend and ushers did not mind if you stayed in your seat for the next screening. the balconies at the waikiki twins may be forever closed, but news of a grassroots group hoping to restore kaimuki's queen theatre is the most delightful discovery of the week. {mahalo reel hawaii!}
