Fifteen Years

UntitledJune was seriously insane! With baseball, packing a house, closing on a house, moving, and an upcoming Catechism retreat I didn't think we'd have time to do anything fun and exciting for our anniversary, but my awesome Lutheran Stud had other plans.
UntitledWe actually took off, in the middle of crazy, for the mountains. 
UntitledGuess what? In the middle of June there was still snow at higher elevations.
_MG_9653.jpgWe landed in Aspen for a few days. It was such a fun little town. We walked all over town. The weather couldn't have been any nicer. Untitled
My bucket list has the Maroon Bells on it because I've heard how beautiful it is and it did not disappoint.  UntitledWe caught a bus in town that took us right up to the Maroon Bells area and then we decided to do a little hiking. Untitled
The trail was beautiful, full of Aspen trees and green leaves. UntitledThere were also waterfalls everywhere with super fast flowing water. The water run-off from the snowy mountains was quite a rush.
UntitledHere's a view of the Maroon Bells. 
UntitledAfter our fun hike we got cleaned up and headed out to dinner.
UntitledJimmy Bodega's was pretty great. The food was fabulous as was the atmosphere. We sat outside and had so much fun people watching. Who knew cocktail sauce could look so good smeared on a plate?
UntitledAfter talking to several people around town we decided to do one last hike before heading home. This was a steep hike, but it lead us to be able to view the entire town from high above. The view was definitely worth it for the difficult, but satisfying hike.
Fifteen years and counting. I wouldn't want to spend it with anyone else. I love you, Jared!

Yes, you are super adorable. Here's to at least 15 more! I'm so glad you were able to sneak away for a bit. That's always a good idea.
