Aloha!

It has been a fast-paced month. We’ve jumped feet-first into wedding season, have been photographing engaged couples and families in the Spring weather, all while putting all the finishing touches on our new website & blog (including creating and writing over 20+ blog entries that we’ve been meaning to share forever but put off until we had our hands on the new website) and coordinating our awesome launch celebration giveaway. When life gets busy, it can be hard to stop long enough to have an adventure, to enjoy a slow walk on the seawall, to just breathe. Things have been so hectic that it feels like we went on our Big Island Hawaiian adventure years ago, but it was only at the beginning of April that we were there!

When I close my eyes and think back on the trip, I smile. Honestly, every adventure Graeme and I go on together feels like another honeymoon. He is the best traveling companion for me and we have so much fun together; we actually have the same travel style and from day to day, so we’ve never fought on a trip. Bliss.

There are so moments that are so clear for me when I think back: The deep red and orange glow of the volcano at night, the sweetness of a shaved ice, snorkeling with the Manta Rays at night and bobbing up and down with the dark waves, the mud speckling my face on our ATV ride through Waipio, the baking sensation over my whole body on the lava fields, and that ache in my chest as we watched the most enormous waves I have ever seen crash near the shore at South Point.

I remember our drive through a mango grove. The dirt road was full of potholes so we took it really slow. We saw a sign that told us we were entering the grove and to ‘Enjoy’. Suddenly the jungle rolled up in front of us. Tangled trees, hanging vines, a canopy of emerald overhead. I felt like we had driven into a dream. One of those catch-your-breath moments.

It was a wild, wonderful, remarkable time together.
