"How do you know a Hawaiian loves you?" and it was one of the best things I have read in a while. It made me laugh until my insides hurt because it was totally true! The best gift to give a Hawaiian and show that you love them is HAWAIIAN/LOCAL FOOD! We Hawaiians, eat some weird (and delicious!) food and we always got the best packages in college. I remember the packages my parents sent me always weirded out my non-Hawaiian roommates but would get raided by my Hawaiian ones.
Living up here on the mainland has made me realize how much I love Hawaii, miss it and I can't wait to move back! Thank you Janette and Perry for bringing back the sweetest gifts from your vacation!
