When we were in Hawaii in January 2007, we were able to meet my cousin Dominique, who was working at a Mazda dealership in Kaka‘ako, only two blocks from where I worked for the summer just a few months before at the architecture firm Urban Works.
She has since moved back to the West Coast so I’m glad we were able to meet her during the short time she and we were in Hawaii at the same time.
Here we are enjoying lunch at the Hungry Lion. Notice the strong family resemblance in our smiles?
A little later, Mom finally got her (second set of) braces taken off and now looks very lovely.
