love makes life a paradise…

2 years ago today…

wedding-collagefrom left to right: Stop at Lumahai Beach before getting ready; T doing my nails; T doing my hair; photos behind our Kauai cottage; My daddy and I; the ceremony; First kiss; rings; cake!

I have to admit it feels longer than just 2 years and I’m pretty sure C would tell you the same.  We’ve had lots of downs and ups.  I won’t sugar coat it.  We aren’t that annoyingly happy couple that has fun together all the time and we don’t pretend to.  But we’ve had lots of great times and awesome memories.  We are constantly moving forward and planning.  I think we will continue to build the life each of us pictured with some bumps along the way.

We got married on the sandy beach of Hanalei on the north shore of Kauai.  This year National Geographic rated it the United State’s number 1 best beach!  Our ceremony was picture perfect.  We had a small reception at the Bali Hai with the 17 people that came to share our special day.  Aren’t we lucky we had 17 people travel 4,000 miles to be with us?


Here’s to 2 years and counting.

    Oh, that looks absolutely wonderful. Ugh, Ria, I’m thinking about getting hitched, but I can’t seem to take the plunge… on paper it’s perfect, but I’m still wierded by the failure of my last marriage.

    You make it look so pretty and happy! Le sigh.
