Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure. Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour yourself another cup. Rose and fireflies dancing in the spiderwebs. Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to.

“I first have to tell you, that these two are some of the closest people in my life. Dean has known Truth (my husband) since the first day of kindergarten, and Sierra has known me since I was born…she is my cousin after all!! I set them up, of course, so you already know I was planning their proposal before they even went on date number 2. I just knew they would be a perfect match, and it has been so beautiful to watch from afar. I had biiiiig plans for their proposal, but when Dean told me his idea, I couldn’t think of anything more perfect for my best friend.”
