"For all of us, becoming indigenous to a place means living as if your children's future mattered, to take care of the land as if our lives, both material and spiritual, depended on it." - Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
My parents immigrated to the United States before I was born, so being an American is part of the fabric of who I am. When my parents came here it was with the idea that "Living the American Dream" meant having the freedom and opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their children. I am so grateful for them and for this country that I live in. I feel like I get to live that "American Dream" everyday. While our country isn't perfect, each of us have the freedom here to choose to be better and to make this country better each day! God Bless America!
Now that Summer is here, two of my favorite things are
Family Time and Cold Treats! Yesterday I had the chance to combine the two for my brother's birthday. The family got together and headed over to one of the best spots in Carson, California:
Tasty Block has all of my favorite island frosty treats like Dole Whips, Shaved Ice, Snow Cones, and Lappert's Ice Cream. It was great to experience the spirit of Aloha while keeping cool in Carson.
