Last week I met my Hawaiian "sisters" in California for my "niece's" wedding.
I really should drop the ""...because it feels legit to claim them as my own.
They were married in the San Diego Temple.
It was under construction.
But so am I.
So the scaffolding didn't bother me.
It was beautiful.
Scotty and Kai, Yasmine, Nikki, kelly (mom) and I.
Kelly gave away her two babies this month.
Wow, I can't believe she is an empty nester.
I fill old.
But the joy of young love,
reminded me to stay young, and love strong.
My friends and family mean so much to me.
They ground me, challenge me and love me just the way I am.
This is Nikki's daughter, Amber.
She is the photographer.
She has her dad's eye, his gift.
We miss you Jon.
But we felt you there, in the temple.
You always watched over kai like she was your own daughter.
Of course you were there.
Greg, Jon, Garrett and I.
Napalei coast 2004.
Our last adventure together.
Till we meet again.
