A plumeria blossom. John and I have been to Hawaii twice, the first time with Mom, Country Girl, Bean and BJ and the second time by ourselves. Luaus, walking up to the edge of a lava flow, a rented home on the beach, a private cottage on a coffee farm. My one and only trip in a helicopter. Being able to take Mom to the USS Arizona Memorial. This ornament evokes so many memories.
