Two images from our honeymoon on the Big Island of Hawaii - - first being my feet on the black sand beach, Punalu'u which was full of sea turtles; second being the Lehua flower, the official Island flower of the Big Island and yes, my name :)
It was a beautiful place, a beautiful time. I have never felt so tied to Hawaii before - - the wedding definitely brought out a hibernated sense of nostalgia for me. I miss the way of life, the friendliness, the concept of everyone being family, the FOOD, hapas, pidgin, being able to drive anywhere and everything being so beautiful. I love LA, but Hawaii still holds my heart. No place quite like it.
