John and I started this awesome adventure together almost three years ago. We met on the most perfect summer day in Alabama on Lake Martin with some sweet friends. The next thing I knew I was spending every day with my new favorite person. Our first year together was spent mostly apart as John traveled across the country interviewing for his residency.
I remember having to say goodbye to him on June 14, 2011 when he left Alabama for good. It was a tough day.
And here we are. Exactly two years later to the day he left, he swept me away for a surprise early birthday getaway and proposed on top of the Flatirons in Boulder, Colorado.
I have never been happier in my life.
At the Portland airport waiting on our shuttle. We were going to be late!
Sunset on top of the Flatirons.
Right when we got back in the car and headed to an amazing dinner at the Flagstaff House, I haven’t stopped smiling since!
Morning run around Boulder and to the top of the Chautauqua Trail.
Lunch time margaritas!
Surprise concert at Red Rocks to see Tedeschi Trucks, Grace Potter and JJ Grey!
Sally was so sweet to bring over necessities on Monday night!
We are both so excited and can’t stop grinning! I have been so enthralled with my left hand this week that I almost forgot I have a 50 mile race coming up!
Thank you all so much for many texts, phone calls, letters and gifts we have received. We feel so loved and supported and are beyond excited for this next step together.
lots of love,
