Our whole life has been one big adventure really, and we’re both fully intent on keeping it that way. That’s one of the things I love about him, you know…his investment in our life and making it something so full and beautiful.
Three months from now we’re setting out on a very special trip. Just like so many people, women especially, dream about their wedding day, I’ve been dreaming of this. Not the location necessarily but the feeling, you know? I dream of a day of peace, intention and love. Both of us completely in touch with our own feelings and that of the other. Completely free of distractions and full of joy. And when people ask why “elope” (which isn’t a really accurate word for I’m sharing my plans quite publicly here), that’s what I say. That’s all that needs to be said.
Yes, we’re “eloping”! Or having a private ceremony as I like to say. This May we are getting married on the island of Kauai in Hawaii!! It’s called the Garden Isle for it’s lush green landscape and overall awe-inspiring persona. We booked a tiny cabin on a farm surrounded by fruit trees and walking distance to the beach. Nearby is a farmer’s market as well as simple restaurants and food trucks, even, with cheap eats. The last few days will be spent at a bed and breakfast in the mountains near to the trails that snake through this shockingly beautiful place. Truthfully, this is all we need to be blissfully happy. I know we will be.
A few days into the adventure we’ll have our wedding day… “we” is the officiant (a warm, wonderful person that has received unbelievable accolade), the photographer (the sweetest woman with such talent) and us, the lovebirds. We’re getting married in the morning at a to-be-determined location that I’m putting far too much thought into. We’ll have lunch-a picnic, maybe- and indulge ourselves in a beach day perhaps. We hope to find a special place for a long dinner later that night. It’s a celebration, after all.
I have so much to say, but this is a start. We are so very fortunate and so very grateful. What a life we have!
