About Us

YeeeeeeeeeeSSSSSSS!!!

Oh my goodness, there are so many wonderful feelings floating around my heart and mind as I write this blog post. A happiness and love that is so powerful and amazing to witness and experience. So as you probably already know or see from the title of this post -  Sebastian and I are ENGAGED!!! (Insert a million smiley faces and hearts here... hehe.) We are so so so very happy and the past two weeks have been just amazing soaking up all the upwelling of joy, love and congrats from our friends and family. A lot of you may have thought we were already married, as many already do, and to be fair we stopped correcting people as we loved it and I knew he was my 'husband' in my heart already. But now, we get to make it official and share this experience with each other and all our loved ones. So exciting!

So how did it all happen? Well, I could tell a super long animated story about his proposal, but I'll give you the shorter version, but still with all the goodness, don't worry.

It happened on Saturday, May 30th, 2015 and we were working on our house all day and were hot, tired and hungry. Sebastian out of the blue as we were getting ready to finish up asked me if I wanted to go on a date night. I was not too sure as we were exhausted from all the house work. But he said, "Oh I'll plan it, and all you have to do is show up." So I reluctantly agreed and my only instruction was that I had to wait one hour before I could go home to my parents farm.

When I got the call that I could come home, he told me I needed to find our dog as he had something for me. "OH a treasure hunt!" I thought. "How FUN! I love surprises!" So I pulled up to the house and called our dog who came wagging over to greet me with a pink note tied to his collar. It was a love note- a sweet poem from Sebastian about this romantic treasure hunt he was going to take me on. I first needed to go inside and look in our closet, because he picked out something for me to wear and then he gave me my first clue. On the closet door there hung a dress with a heart note tied to it that said "You look Amazing in this. xoxo", and my hearted melted and I am pretty sure I squealed too! haha.
So I got ready and went off to my first clue which lead me to the middle of my Dad's noni field. A little baby coconut was waiting for me with a love not tied to it. I was just so happy and having the best time and had no idea what was about to happen. I went off to my next clue, and found a dozen roses tied to the bamboo in the valley with another really sweet love poem about us. Still no idea, and just having the best afternoon ever on this spontaneous adventure. Then off to my next clue which had another love note and a lei waiting for me. (Aaawww he is the sweetest!) Then off to my childhood beach where I grew up going to and is a really special place to me. As I pulled up I saw his car, so I knew I got it right and I was excited to go kiss him and tell him how amazing he was for planning this all in 1 hour! lol! I grabbed my roses and walked out to the beach, and as I did, I see Sebastian walk out of the trees on the beach all dressed up and looking so handsome! I shouted and squealed in joy again and walked up to give him the biggest hug!
And then... I'll let the video below tell the rest of the story. (Disclaimer - sorry  we are not videographers and this was captured on our little home camera, so quality is not the best, but you get the idea!)
