Reality and Dreams (Hawaii)
Reality is starting to sink in. I've talked about it for months- I've counted down the weeks and now it's here. I'm on my first flight of many I'll be making this month. I'm going to Hawaiiâ¦ it's easy to say but then as I was packing my bags it hit me. My dreams are coming true.. I'll be experiencing the white sand beaches, the Hawaiian breeze and beautiful lays in just a matter of days!
I don't know what I'm most excited about- I'm beyond honored that Carrie and Daryl pinched their pennies- wore the paint off the buttons of their calculator and made personal sacrifices so that I could be there with them as they exchange their vowsâ¦ so that I could the THEIR photographer IN Hawaii. Like seriously- are you kidding me? Leaves me speechless when I think about it.
Im looking forward to experiencing this land called Hawaii- I've heard so much about. From the white sand to the black sand to the tropics and the mountainsâ¦ seeing the ocean and the mountains and the beach all at the same time. (Did I mention they're also taking me along for a full day tour of the island? Oh- and I'm the designated photographer- how fun is that? Word is I'll be in a picture or two- (per Carrie) I guess it's imporant I have pictures of myself in paradise too!)
I'm stoked to visit Pearl Harbor. I'm not much of a history buff- it was actually my least favorite subject in school but when history comes to life and I'm not just reading the pages of a text book- I love it. Pearl Harbor has been on my bucket list since high school and I can't wait to see and experience that piece of our American History.
We'll be snorkeling as well- Lydia and I have big plans for our day off- laying on the beach, snorkeling, Pearl Harbor and maybe even an early morning of Whale watching.
What an amazing way to kick of the 2012 wedding season- literally- we are livin' the dream!
