Six years ago today, I married my sweetie.

We were married among a small gathering of family on the porch of a lovely, private plantation house in Hana, Maui.

We won’t be together on our anniversary this year, but Sweetie, I want you to know that I still love you as much as I did the day I married you. Probably more.

We’ll celebrate when you get home.

E hoomau maua kealoha.

Elizabeth is a professional genealogist, writer, and consultant. Likes: long walks in the cemetery, and the smell of old courthouse books. Dislikes: people who copy stuff off the internet without giving credit, and county clerks who can't tell the difference between Eastern and Pacific time zones. Secretly hopes her daughter will one day develop an interest in family history (but no luck so far).
