"Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends"
Being separated 3,000 miles from most of my family in the mainland is difficult and sometimes I do miss having my old friends and family close by to visit and share some time with.
In Hawaii we have our own version of family we call our Ohana ( a non-familial extended family) these become our adopted family of friends who live on the island and we spend most of our time socializing with our Ohana family.
Most of our gatherings are always focused on food activities, in fact my ohana is part of the Big Island International Cooking group and we always put together amazing dinner parties.
There's always plenty of delicious dishes and something new to try. How would you like to join us for some of these meals?
Or how about something sweet like these?
I am blessed to see that I also do have a wonderful Ohana here in East Hawaii and life is very special here...thank you my ohana.
