The Luau.

One year ago today, Derek’s sister got married.  After living in Hawaii most of the year, she came back home and longed for a Hawaiian themed wedding.  We did the best we could for a October wedding.  And just like today, it was 80 degrees that day.  Simply perfect.

Plans had been made and invitations nearly printed up for the wedding to be held at a relative’s house further up north, near Flint.  After a somewhat tearful epiphany one day, she called me in tears and told me that most of her friends from down here would not be able to attend.   Then she asked me if she could have it in our backyard.  Something like 5 weeks from that day.

Having just started my second year of nursing school, I almost burst out in tears.  But I conceded.  And we got to work on the much neglected yard and house that would be providing for a hundred and some people.

In the end, some might say it was far from perfect.  But it was a blast.

She and her husband have since moved back to Hawaii this year and are loving life.

The End.
