Love Stories of Hawaii

Special Occasion

Dedicated to My wonderful husband, Ken Borders

Submitted by Renee

My Daddy was a career Navy man, so of course we lived near a Navy base. I was 16 and he was 20, when my husband Ken and I first met. He had just gotten out of boot camp and was at his first duty station. We were engaged a week after we met! We dreamed of a honeymoon in Hawaii, or of being stationed there at some point in our twenty year tour of military service, but that wasn't to be. Our honeymoon almost wasn't! We had a very limited income due my husband being in the Navy less than a year. We decided to drive from Memphis to near Atlanta (where his family resides)with a stopover of one night in Nashville. Then the plan was to spend a few days with his family. NOT! We didn't realize it at the time, but it was the same weekend as the grand opening of Opryland. There wasn't a room to be had within a hundred and fifty miles of Nashville!! We were almost at my in-laws before we found a place to stay for our honeymoon night! It wasn't exactly the place we had in mind, but it was as good as being in Hawaii to us at the time:) It's now 32 years, 4 kids, and 7 grandkids later and we'd STILL love to go to HAWAII!!!!!!!
