Just a little about me: I’m from Jackson, Wyoming, getting married on the Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii in July to my wonderful Aussie. We got engaged in August 2009 at the bar where we first met. He crooned Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ during Karaoke Night then got down on one knee with mic in hand and presented me with his great-grandmother’s engagement ring from 1914. Our wedding date is the three-year anniversary of when we started dating, and though it’s over the inconvenient 4th of July weekend, we couldn’t be more thrilled.
It’ll be the first time either of us has taken a vacation in at least 3 years, plus he hasn’t seen any of his family since he moved to the States over 4 years ago, so that will be pretty radtastic. I haven’t met any of them, either. It’ll be adventure on top of adventure!
We already have the vast majority of our planning done and now are just sussing out a few details and whether or not we really want them as we count down the days until we hop on a plane!

Hi ladies, sorry it took a while.
I’m an Angry Panda because it was a nickname I was given a few years back by friends of mine and my Aussie still uses it. I worked at a burger joint with a bunch of dudes and they used to say it was hard to take me seriously when I was mad. They said it was like an Angry Panda, because pandas are always adorable. And it usually worked to calm me down from being mad because I’d get a visual of a panda in my head. Kind of goofy, but it still works at talking me back from the ledge.
