I had really forgotten how nervewracking one's own wedding is.

CaliValleyGirl and fiance are hanging in there, both a tad frazzled about the whole event tomorrow. Most of their friends here are single, so I don't quite think anyone understands why they're so stressed. But I remember it well: wanting to puke for two days and feeling like nothing was going to get done on time. But it all magically does.

Hawaii is beautiful. But I sure didn't expect to wake up to a cacophony of roosters this morning. So odd.

More later...

Oh the wedding stress.....I remember it well...well it was a blur and a really long time ago, but nonetheless it was just as you describe...wish the couple good luck from the East Coast and many years of Happiness!!!!

Enjoy your HI time....I'm envious, you live in Germany, which I so so miss....and now you are in my other favorite part of the world.....

Sarah, can I be you when I grow up??? Please?

Where did you end up staying? I would rather wake up to the cooing of the doves instead of roosters.

Don't forget to squeeze in the Diamondhead hike if you have the time. Also sunrise at Makapuu beach and sunset at Ala Moana beach. I was going to suggest Makaha beach but too many locals there dislike haole's.

The stress from my wedding never ended.
