Recently I took a vacation to one of my very favorite spots on the planet: the Big Island of Hawaii. Having lived there briefly in 2005, I have always felt like I've left a piece of my heart there; when the oppportunity arose to take my beloved there for his first time and share with him the places and environment that I held so dear, I jumped at the chance. He further surprised me with a marriage proposal (which I have accepted with joy) and so now this trip has an even more special place in my memories. I've uploaded the entire set of shots to a set on Flickr and you'll also find selected photos added to various galleries on my portfolio. Aloha!
