our hawaii honeymoon.

After two weeks on Kauai, we're back from our honeymoon and feeling, well, pretty blissed out. We swam, we hiked, we snorkeled and luau-ed and explored, but honestly? Most of our trip was spent relaxing, playing cards, and — nerd alert — doing crossword puzzles together while we sat by the pool. Oh, and we also ate our weight in macadamia nuts. And seafood. And, well, everything. It was perfect.
This was our first real "vacation" together — our first trip with no purpose. No big event, nobody to visit, nothing to do. It was our first time traveling just to travel, and we couldn't be more grateful.

Now that we're back, though, I have to to say: I'm very excited to get back into a routine. To take on new projects, dive back into old ones, and finally, truly settle into this city. 

I mean, I just really love a new beginning.

Oh man, those smiles... So stinkin' sincere. And so contagious! So happy for you, beauty!

cheers to what's ahead. As one of my favorite songs says: "Because I know that this is the beginning of the best years of my life
The first years of our lives, starting now"

Once, I got a chance to visit Maldives during for business purposes, and I was so impressed with the beautiful tourists spots and sea beaches that I decided that I will revisit the place with my fiancĂ©e after marriage, so I booked a ‘Alpha Maldives’ villa soon after we fixed the wedding date, because I wanted to spend some cherished moments with my beloved, at one of my favourite places.
