Reminders of Home

I recently wrote about my love for the football necklace that my mom gave me for Christmas and wanted to share the bracelet she gave me as well. Going to school on the mainland has been a fun yet difficult transition to make and it’s made me more homesick than ever. I’ve been traveling away from my family since I went to New Zealand in 2006, but I never expected to really miss Hawai‘i as I made my journey to Texas. However, going to a new place with different cultures and people has made me long for my own and my mom knew that. Because of my homesickness, she bought this bracelet for me from Georgie Designs– the same brand that made my football necklace. This bracelet brings me comfort knowing that my home with all of the people and cultures that I love will always be there no matter what.
