Cariloha Friday! A day that licenses you to pursue something new, to kick off your shoes and relax all weekend long, and to wear comfortable bamboo along the way. Think lofty thoughts this weekend, as it seems to be taking you toward the clouds with Airmail Balloon Day and National Aviation Day.
As you begin to test the weekend waters, be sure to get your Cariloha style on, letting it inspire your poetic side or your lighter-than-air side, whichever comes first. Share your activities with friends and family.
Send a secret letter to the upper atmosphere or wear a coonskin cap that you (today), then, recite some poetry to a friend or loved one and adopt a pet from a local animal shelter (tomorrow), next, hold a paper-airplane-making and flying contest and scarf down some spicy salsa and potatoes (Sunday), finally, consider staying home with your kids, not doing your hair, and listening to the radio (Monday). Have a happy aviation weekend!
However you approach your weekend, make it a memorable time and don’t forget to wrap up in your Cariloha bamboo-soft clothing, sheets or towels every day.
