Wiring for two light switches and two light fixtures

Good morning, all.

I want to get opinions for how to best wire the following... I want to to be able to toggle on/off both ceiling light fixtures regardless of which switch is flipped. I don't want only one light to be on or one light to be off. Both on, or both off. Below is a rough diagram of how it looks.

<light switch in kitchen> -------- <light fixture> --------- <light fixture> -------- <light switch in hallway>

Thanks all.

The way you have it drawn you need four wire cable between the fixtures.
Best to go power- sw1 - sw2 - L2 - L2.

Agreed. See my diagram for the simpler way.
