If you’ve ever fallen in love, you can relate.
Mutual friends talked him up: “he’s amazing and fun,” I was told. He was mysterious and enchanting.
Initially, I was intimidated to meet him. After months, on a beautiful July morning in 2011, I finally agreed.
The crisp mountain air at Beaver Creek, CO began to warm as butterflies swarmed my stomach. The mountains, as they often are, were inspiring. I wanted my voice to echo through the mountains about the beautiful possibility of this new day.
Little did I know how truly life changing this day would be.
When I arrived, there were many people buzzing around. Everything blurred, as I was in a whirlwind of excitement.
With a bang, we were off! My heart raced as my breath quickened with passion. Each moment was better than the next. I knew I’d never be the same.
It’s been six years. There has been adventure after adventure: from Beaver Creek, CO to Maui, HI and many in between. Not only have we traveled a great deal, but there are promises of future worldly travels. We’ve met new friends from near and far. We’ve seen each other at our weakest and at our strongest. This love is more than I ever imagined.
As cliche as it is, my life has been forever enriched, and I look forward for many more years to come! Cheers and happy year anniversary, Xterra!
