White Sandy Beach




Four years ago today, I stood barefoot on this beach in Maui, Hawaii and married the man of my dreams.


A small, simple,  yet memorable ceremony, and a "first" for us both.


I can clearly remember this moment when the surf rushed up onto the beach while we were walking.  
Exhilarating, cool, breathless, and pure bliss!


I saw you in my dreams
We were walking hand in hand
On a white, sandy beach of Hawaii
We were playing in the sun
We were having so much fun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

The sound of the ocean
soothes my restless soul
The sound of the ocean
rocks me all night long

Those hot long summer days
Lying there in the sun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

The sound of the ocean
soothes my restless soul
The sound of the ocean
rocks me all night long

Last night in my dreams
I saw your face again
We were there in the sun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii 


(This song by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole is on my playlist at the bottom of this page)


It was a blessing that we found each other, neither one being married previously and into our forties.
So, while four years might not seem like much to some, we cherish our life together everyday. 


Thank you for letting me share on this special day.
