Even though our honeymoon was in April, I had to pull out a couple pictures & share some ideas with you. Tips to our engaged friends, get a journal to write down specific memories from your honeymoon because guaranteed you will forget! For example, write down where you went, stayed, dates you were there, favorite places to eat, different foods we tried, favorite activities, favorite moments, funniest thing that happened, & what you want to remember most. I was blessed with an older sister that gave us a "honeymoon journal" that was specifically dedicated to that week spent together. To be honest, it was hard to sit down & journal but I somehow got my thoughts together. Kona, Hawaii was were we decided to take our adventure because it is kind of a tradition in the Wells family. My grandparents handed down their time share to my parents so we got to stay there with no expenses. We were there from March 30-April 9th. It was enough time to distress from all the crazy wedding planning madness but maybe too long because Adam & I were antsy to get back to reality! We spent days enjoying Hapuna beach, Kua Bay, the Kona Farmer's Market, & relaxing by the pool. Most nights we would BBQ shrimp, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions & pineapple (thank goodness I got a man that loves to cook like I do!) Driving around the whole island of Hawaii, which took an entire day, was actually one of our favorite activities because it was an opportunity to get lost in the jungle, make ridiculous videos, find random black sand beaches, take crazy pictures & eat local kailua pork sandwiches. Another activity that we recommend is to go on the night manta ray snorkel dive! It was incredible to have these huge animals swim right in front of your eyes (bring an underwater camera, you won't regret it!) Some of our favorite places to eat were Killer Tacos & the Acai Bowl smoothie shack off Alii Drive. If honeymooning in a condo, I recommend buying food for the week & spending time cooking, cleaning, dancing in the kitchen together. Well I mean, that's what we did :) But what I want to remember most about our honeymoon is that we can be doing absolutely nothing but the presence of one another soothes my heart. It is each other's company that inevitably bring happiness & contentment which words cannot explain. 


 When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the yearning to be close to the other. 
The presence that is felt through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen. 
Souls do not have calendars or clocks, nor do they understand the notion of time or distance. 
They only know that it is right to be with one another.
This is the reason why you miss someone so much when they are not there -- 
even if they are only in the very next room.  Your soul only feels their absence -- 
it doesn't realize the separation is only temporary. 


Can I ask you something?
Why is it every time we say goodnight, it feels like goodbye?
