Happy Anniversary Sweetie

Four years ago I did the most romantic thing I have ever done. I married my sweetheart on Wailea Beach in Maui at sunset. We were barefoot and wearing Tommy Bahama clothing. I wore a haku lei in my hair and he wore a maile lei. I remember looking up at his tan, happy face and thinking "this is paradise." We were unaware of anything but the presence of our own little wedding party. Not only was it romantic, but it was one of the most fun things I have ever done. My new brother and sister-in-law were our witnesses. The minister and photographer were the only other souls I remember. The minister spoke of love and romance and gave a reading:

This ring is the symbol of the circle.
It has no beginning and no end.
It is the oldest symbol of God
And represents the eternal and
endless Love that links us together.

It was on this very special night that we both saw a moonbow.

In one way, it doesn't seem like four years have passed already. In another way, it seems like it has always been like this. You've changed my life and made me feel whole again.

Now we will feel no rain
For each of us will be shelter to each other.
And now we will feel no cold
For each of us will be warmth to each other.
Now there is no loneliness
We are two bodies, but there is one life before us and one home.
When evening falls, I'll look to you and there you'll be.
And I'll take your hand and you'll take mine
And we'll turn together and we'll look to the road we traveled to reach this-
The hour of our happiness.
It stretched far behind us, and our future lies ahead--
A long and winding road where every turning means discovery
All the hopes, new laughter, shared tears,
The adventure has just begun.

And it continues...

This is what was delivered to me today.


The delivery person said, "Are you Barbie? Somebody loves Barbie." That made me almost as happy as the flowers.

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.

we go to maui every other year (but stay up at kaanapali) and have seen many weddings (from afar) on the beach. i always thought it would be the most romantic place to have a wedding.

it sounds like not only did you have a romantic wedding, but a romantic guy, too. lucky you.
