t's drizzly and grey outside as I write this, so looking at these photos is like peering through a little window to a magical place. Sometimes it's bizarre that such a place even exists! I was excited to bring my camera to Hawai'i and photograph everything. The colors and textures and light is all so different than the PNW, so it was fun to play around with my camera while we were there. Everything is so beautiful so of course I took tons of photos. And way too many sunset photos. Sometimes I think a sunset is just meant to be experienced in real life, not through photos. Dan and I got a kickstart of serious wanderlust while we were there. It's easy to know that exploring new places is just a plane ride away (which still kind of blows my mind), but it doesn't really sink in until you step off a plane and you're in a whole new place, just like that.
When I was a kid we had a huge family trip to Europe planned and the day before we were going to leave my grandma got in a car accent and was medivaced up to Anchorage to the ICU and we all canceled our trip because we were expecting her to die. Of course now, like 15 years later she's going on 94, but I still haven't gone overseas and I know it's only a plane flight away. Dan went on a trip in high school to the UK and a bit of France, but he's been wanting to go back and see more too, so now it's just a matter of making it happen. We're calling Hawai'i our 3rd anniversary trip, so maybe it'll be Paris for our 4th.
