today was

A very good day. really, it was fabulous. 

there is nothing like 
seeing old friends.

I got to go to the wedding of my sister in law's 
sister. they are from Tahiti. 
I haven't been to TAHITI for five years. So it's been quite a while since I have seen the family. But they are so beautiful and wonderful and we were good friends again right away. 

I missed them a lot. 

I got to use my french! I don't get to do that very often. I am very out of practice and it makes me very sad sometimes. but they were very patient and kind. vahitu
 even said my french was better HA! then he made fun of my french accent (the tahitian "R" is different, and I think kind of prettier) and i smiled that he thought I even had one at all. 

i miss tahiti very much. i hope to go back with my honey very soon. maybe christmas? maybe. 

after the brothers talked to gar about fishing, his heart was won. he wants to go almost as much as i do now! we'll have to get him a spear. and i'll ha
ve to practice my french. 

I forgot my camera at the temple, but hopefully can steal some pictures from my papa. or from some of the family on facebook. 

but it was just such a good day. :)

hey! i'm totally open for whatever you guys want! do you have a specific style in your own mind? my friend lee (my business partner of sorts) and i love to experiment with each shoot. i guess i don't know too much about your personal style, but we could do whimsical and funky? or soft and romantic? or a combination of anything! if you have any styles of pictures you see floating around on the web and want to email them to me, that would be cool too! i'm not sure about my weekends this month, i sort of found out about a family trip and was asked to go on a shoot over the weekend, but i can figure out more about june and let you know! :) can't wait to hear from you! :)
