I love your blogs they are not only informative but fun and easy to read. We can relate to the information given. I especially love the shot of Pu’uhonua. It brings back great memories of events and people that were shared there. Also, you didn’t add that not only was it our stomping ground but the meeting place for mom and dad as well. Keep doing the great work that you’re doing on keeping us updated and informed.

a hui hou,

Kepano: Mahalo for stopping by, for the comment, and for your readership. When I migrated to my own domain, I wanted a Header that would reflect my roots, which I think it does.

Wow, Capsun, in the weeks leading up to, and immediately following your wedding, I feel like I’ve learned so much about you. Granted, I’ve found myself reading up on your site … (thanks to your wedding detail reminders, and dad’s keen sense of website promotion at your reception.) lol.
Bravo… keep it coming… and when you’re running the country out in DC, don’t forget us little people (um … that is to say, me and my Vinh! haha)
