After a recent thread about reliving our vacations by watching Hawaii 5-0, I wondered what others do to keep Hawaii near when they can’t be on their favorite island. Here are my obsessions; what are yours?
I get Kona coffee delivered to my home monthly. Including shipping, the $26.00 per pound of 100% Kona coffee direct from the grower is less than $1.00/cup.
My guest room has tropical bedding, Hawaii posters, and many photos we took of flowers and waterfalls from our visits.
When I need to send a gift, forget Edible Arrangements; I send gift baskets from Take Home Maui, Island Princess Macadamia Nut Popcorn, and Island Soap and Candle Works products. When the family is all home at the holidays, I have the goodies shipped here so we can all enjoy (perfect pineapple in December – the best).
I landscaped around my deck with yellow hibiscus and white, pink & magenta plumeria. Tucked among the plants are outdoor speakers playing Hawaiian music that I spent hours choosing from iTunes. Ahh, almost like a resort.
And, yeah, I watch H50 for the scenery.
