Max Kiesler and I were married on Saturday, June 20, 2009 on a beautiful day at the beach on Oahu, Hawaii. Our friend Vernon later pointed out that it was on the day of the Mauli moon, which is considered a good day for marriages in the Native Hawaiian Moon Calender. It meant the world to me to have my parents, sister, brother, niece, aunts, uncles, cousins, and Hawaiian friends all gathered together for this special day on this beautiful island. It will live in my heart and memory forever. Thank you Mom and Dad for your unconditional love and support, and everything you’ve taught me. I love you, Max. Aloha!
