Hawai’i – Heaven on Earth!

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

Aloha!We were too busy enjoying ourselves in Hawaii to write in the blog and once we got home, we got caught up in all new things to do. Well, two months after our return I’m finally writing about it. I hope it will be easier now to summarize everything. If I had tried to write about it all as soon as we got back, you would be reading for hours! (more…)

Honeymoon time in San Francisco

Friday, September 26th, 2008

2:35 San Francisco time… We’re sitting in the airport waiting for our flight to Hawaii to start boarding! We spent the last 3 1/2 days loving San Francisco. This was the first time either of us has ever been to California, so it was really nice to experience everything together for the first time. (more…)

Hawaii here we come

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Today we bought our airline tickets to Hawaii. I found a really good deal, and we figured we would get started with that and fill in the rest of the details as we go. We are also planning to stay in San Francisco for a few days. I started doing some more research and talking to a friend who just went to Hawaii a few weeks ago. It’s a little overwhelming how much there is to do, and how man different types of places there are to stay! I’m think it will be good to spend about 3-4 days in each place. We don’t want to move around so much that we wipe ourselves out, but we also want to see as much as we can. Who knows if we’ll ever have a chance to go to Hawaii again. I started researching hikes because I know Pete always enjoys hiking. I love how descriptive everything is. One in particular sounded great to me. It started out under fruit trees, traveled under a canopy and ended at a waterfall with a pool of water at the bottom that you can swim in. I can’t wait to get there!

Four months to go!

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

I can’t believe we only have four months to go. I have been slacking on typing my wedding planning updates for the last few weeks but I have been writing in a notebook, so hopefully I will add everything online soon. In the meantime, today I started really thinking about the honeymoon. I have been using The Knot’s Ultimate Wedding Planner (thanks to Stacy!) and I also get a monthly e-mail from theknot.com on the 21st of each month. Today’s e-mail said it’s time to start planning the honeymoon! Our top two ideas so far are Croatia and Hawaii. I started getting some ideas from my wedding chat board and Hawaii really sounds amazing. I think it would also be a great balance for us because Pete also loves the mountains and hiking, and we can do that in the same place as we can go snorkeling. I would also love to go to Croatia and see the place where Pete’s dad’s side of the family is from but the beach weather is past its prime by the end of September.
