well, we're back in vancouver from our trip to hawaii. it was such a relaxing break! there are so many memories from this trip, i thought i would share a few with you through pictures.
this was our view. although this shot doesn't capture it, you could see diamond head to the left. in the morning and evening the waves would be peppered with surfers. you could also hear the ocean all the time. lulling us to sleep. it was fantastic!
this was how they would prepare your poolside lounge chair. super soft towels and an orchid. heaven.
this was taken poolside on our first morning. a longboard beer and a mai tai. it was 10:00am. we had just finished breakfast. oh well, we thought, we're on holiday. plus, it was 1:00pm back home. so easy to justify. (best mai tai...EVER.)
a fun mosaic i saw while we were out walking one evening. i liked the sea turtles.
and if you've made it to the end of this post, you will see that WE GOT MARRIED! it was planned around my mother-in-law's hawaiian cruise. we wanted a super small, quick wedding and she was our witness the day she came to honolulu. the whole thing took about 40 minutes. ceremony, pictures, everything.
it was VERY windy that day, more then usual we were told, so alot of the shots were of us trying not to squint too much and struggling to keep our hair (and my dress) down. needless to say, we also have alot of shots with us bursting out into laughter. the day was light and easy and relatively stress free. that is exactly what we wanted for the day. our family and friends were with us in our hearts and now we can have a stress free barbecue to share our happiness with them.
well, i should probably get my butt into gear. there is much laundry, cleaning and that thing called 'work' to tend to. happy tuesday!
