Niccole and James | Hawaii Elopement Photographer

These two are nerds at heart, choosing to get married on PI Day, 3.14.15. How fantastic is that?? The Universe must have been feeling generous, because not only did we have a stunning sunset, we also saw pods of whales planning nearby, sometimes close enough for us to hear them breathe. It was magical! I love this low-key elopement and I’m sure you will too!

101 Things Update (almost done!)

For those that have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember that I have been trying to finish this list since November, 2012!!! It’s almost done, finalized in August. The sad thing is that a few will be accomplished later this year, so this list will never be finished. But can I just say that it’s been a good run? That I accomplished in two years what most don’t in their lifetime? I’m not bragging, I’m just as bewildered as you are. To me, this is such an honest proof of manifestation and goal setting. I honestly thought, looking at this list when I first wrote it, that there was NO way I would even accomplish it. It was going to cost thousands upon thousands of dollars, especially becoming debt free and paying off my car, going to Thailand, getting a Mac computer, etc. But I did it!
