postcards from guam {recap}


A festive carabao at the Yona fiesta. Pretty dapper, huh?




Obsessed with her flower crown -- otherwise known as a pandana.




And here's Do'ak the real carabao! 


Do'ak and I ready for our close up. Don't ask me what face I'm making here. He started to move so I was't sure what to do.



Woven cuties.

Outfit #1: Jacket: Old Navy; Dress: Parker, borrowed from Heather (similar style here); Sandals: J.Crew; Bag: Pour La Victoire c/o; Sunglasses: Karen Walker
Outfit #2: Bathing suit: Elizabeth Kosich New York c/o; Shorts: Levis; Sunglasses: Karen Walker

For one of our final days on the island, we packed as much as we could in -- to savor every last moment! We kicked off the morning at a fiesta in the village of Yona. Predominantly Catholic, Guam's villages (there's 19 total) have a dedicated patron saint that they celebrate once a year. As luck would have it, Yona's is Saint Francisco, fitting for this Bay Area girl. Fiestas are thrown by everyone in the village so it's not uncommon to "fiesta hop" -- think tons of food, dancing and music -- with the occasional carabao ride thrown in.  

Josie and I then headed to Gun Beach where we enjoyed some downtime of, well, doing nothing but listening to the ocean roll in and reflect on how I didn't want to leave. 

Now that I'm back in SF, with my bags (sorta) unpacked, I personally want to thank everyone who made this trip possible. Huge thank you to the Guam Visitors Bureau for inviting me out -- and being so incredibly kind to me during my stay (Mark, Josie and Felix, I'm looking at you!). Here's to the start of many more Guam trips in the future! I didn't get to go scuba diving this time -- so I got my rain check ready. Be sure to check out all my other posts from the island here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4Hafa adai! 

But in the meantime, I do have something more for you, dear readers. You can snag an Elizabeth Kosich New York bathing suit (like the one I'm wearing here) for yourself! Simply follow Elizabeth Kosich New York on Twitter and Facebook (here and here respectively) and leave a comment below! The contest ends next Friday, Oct. 19, with the winner being selected by the folks at Elizabeth Kosich New York -- good luck to you all! (If you can't wait though, she's also offering a 20% discount code for all This Time Tomorrow readers -- be sure to enter "TTT20" at checkout.)

On that note, happy almost weekend, everyone!
