Craving

Mangoes - a juicy, tropical staple from my childhood....

The rainbowed goodness of a refreshing Hawaiian shave ice (kind of like Italian ice)...

The sight of big waves pounding Hawaiian shores in winter! (Can't you tell I want a tropical vacation? :))

Mango - yum!! Possibly my favorite fruit and I only tasted them about 10 years ago, hate that I missed eating them all those years before. I remember reading (possibly on a mango sticker)that they were the most widely consumed fruit in the world.

You know, I really don't like raw mangoes but I can eat dried mangoes forever.

i love mangoes. they taste really gooooood. probably they're my top choice of sweet picks (second is mint chewing gum. haha).
the rainbow shaved ice looks really lovely. i love the colors, and yea, it goes well with the warmth of the gorgeous beach, i guess.:)

YUM, mangos are my favorite fruit!

Before graduating, our school took all the seniors to Hawaii for a senior trip, and we went to the most amazing shaved ice place. I can't remember what it was called, but I do remember it was SOO GOOD! There was even gelato in the middle!
