Breaking in Our New Snowshoes

Courtney and I received snowshoes for christmas this year. Mine were from my brother and Courtney's from my mom. We didn't have a lot of time to go on a big adventure, but we just had to get up in the mountains and give them a try. Chataquah park near Boulder was the perfect spot to break them in. We honestly had a blast. These things are going to be so much fun. They let you explore places that you normally wouldn't be able to get to when there is snow on the ground. Plus it is a really fun way to get some good exercise. I am crazy sore already. 

Thanks for the gifts guys. We are going to put them to great use. 

Matt × Carol

So there is this little time of rest on almost every wedding day right before the ceremony starts. All the preparation and build up has led to this moment, and there is a slight pause, a breath of anticipation. 

I was standing in the yard of this amazingly beautiful old mansion in the forest and hill country of Pennsylvania, watching guests mingle and find their seats, thinking about what was about to happen. Carol, one of Courtney's best friends since...well forever was about to marry Matt, this amazing guys that we have all come to love. Two lives and worlds were joining to create the most beautiful relationship in creation. They were becoming a family, a team, a bond, and a force for good.  

I am super happy for these two and even more happy that I get to call them friends.
