On Saturday, March 31st Clay and I got engaged!!! I am still in shock. We are beyond happy, thrilled & excited right now! The outpouring of love and support from friends, family, followers, total strangers has been incredible, to say the least.
To be honest, I was scared I wasn’t going to be surprised. For one, we have been talking about getting engaged a lot recently and since I am a total planner I was having trouble figuring out when it could happen. All of our weekends are basically booked! I thought it may happen in May when we are in Atlanta for a wedding but boy was I wrong. I really just want to write this all down so I can remember every freaking moment of it.
TL: DR We got engaged at the top of Peak 7 in Breckenridge and it was PERFECT!!
Clay and I had been debating heading to Moab for the weekend or just skiing. Moab just seemed like a big last-minute trip so on Monday Clay mentioned us finding an Airbnb for the weekend (!!!) I, of course, started looking ASAP. I found a few spots but a lot were booked by Tuesday night. Clay ended up finding a deal on Booking.com for a room right in Breckenridge so we booked it! In retrospect this was a little odd… we had talked about getting a place before but always decide to just save money, but since it was Clay’s idea I wasn’t stopping him haha.
Friday night we got tacos and margs after work then headed home and watched movies. We were both really excited about our weekend adventure. We had not had a weekend to just the two of us in a while and going on adventures is our favorite thing to do together.
We decided we were in no rush to get up in the morning since we would have two full days of skiing so we slept in, packed, cleaned the house and headed up the hill. When we got to Idaho Springs Clay realized we had forgotten our ski boots. I laughed and told him its okay it was only 9:30 and since there was NO traffic we would be on the hill by 11. Clay later told me he had to try very hard to keep his cool when we had to turn around, but he had told himself it was my day and we were going to do whatever I wanted! LOL!
Once we got to the hill we parked in the F lot and headed up Peak 9. Recently I found out I have Raynolds Disease which basically means your fingers and toes go numb/turn white and it’s super painful and annoying. When we got to the mountain they were already numb so I went inside to warm them up. It was in the 40s partly cloudy and not crowded at all so I suggest we do laps on peak 7 which has some of my favorite runs.
