Home!

Well, we're back from Hawaii. Thanks to some mechanical issues with the plane, we arrived home nearly eight hours later than we were supposed to. I am still dealing with jetlag.
I thought I'd start easy on the posts with some pics of the henna tattoo I got at the Ali'i Marketplace. So fun! I've always wanted one and now I want more. They last up to 4 weeks. So far, mine is going strong.
This is a few hours after it was done. The henna has dried and begun to flake off. By the end of the day, all the henna had chipped off, leaving a pale orange mark behind, as you can see in the next picture.
It got progressively darker in the next day or two, and I think it's now even a little darker still than in this shot.

Anyway, more pics and stories of Hawaii to come. Stay tuned!

  8. Sweeet! I didn't know they were temporary. Might be worth a try. I've always wanted a small something, but I'm a chicken.

  9. Shhhhheeeexxxxy! I love henna tattoos. You get the fun of having something "tatto-like" without the permanence of it. Nice choice!
