#PhillaceAdventure2016 Video

Finally finished our #PhillaceAdventure2016 video! For 31 days, Trevor and I:

  • Flew to CA and spent 6 days with family (Trevor went to AZ for his sister’s wedding while I tried to help my Dad recuperate from back surgery)
  • Flew to Canada for a layover
  • Flew to Reykjavik, Iceland
  • Spent 10 days road tripping and circumnavigating the country
  • Flew to New York and spent the evening in Time Square
  • Flew to Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Flew to Lusaka, Zambia
  • Flew to Mfuwe, Zambia
  • Spent 10 days doing a walking and driving safari with the Lodge and 3 other Bush Camps
  • Flew to Lusaka, Zambia
  • Flew to Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Flew to New York for a layover
  • Flew to San Francisco for a layover
  • Flew to Portland, Oregon
  • Spent 5 days road tripping with Trevor’s Dad, his Stepmom, Peggy, and their dog, Brewser
  • Saw Flight of the Conchords perform not once, but TWICE (BOTH killer seats AND killer shows!)
  • Flew back to O’ahu
  • Spent 5 days with my parents on the island

It was NUTS! One of our best trips so far! Sandwiched with family and tons of incredible landscapes, we had a blast. If this could be our life always.. ;)

It’s going to be hard to top (but we can do it!). I’ve once again fallen in love with people and places and mother nature’s absolute beauty.

After the wedding, we showered and watched Alex help dad make dinner.

I LOVE my dad and think he’s the best. And I LOVE that Alex is just like him :)

Nash Wedding

Saturday morning, we got ready for the big day – Jonathan and Michelle’s wedding!

It was held at a private park in Orange. It was a hot one! But still so beautiful!

The one time I let myself be next to the photographer. Went back to where I was standing and saw that it was blurry :( And T’s family had already dispersed :(

“Those we love don’t don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday… unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.”

Jonathan and his mom danced to “In My Life” by the Beatles. As well as Nicole and her father AND me and my dad at all of our weddings <3

The bride and groom (the only photo I have because I didn’t want to stick another camera in their face).
