Our Happy Place

Look at this place...
the clear water...
the waterfalls...
the crisp Colorado air...
Ah!
THIS is our happy place!!
This is also the place where Matt and I got engaged!
Hanging Lake,
Glenwood Springs
Right behind this waterfall,
Matt asked me to be his wifey...7 years ago!!
Here is a little re-enactment of that special moment...
oh, wow, do you feel like you were there with us?!
I sure do love this place!!
I also think it is quite humorous
that every year the hike up gets a little harder...
my calves burn a little more...
and I need more and more little rest stops!!
Here are the too cool boys...
Jared hiked up with us.
Herbal Essences hubby...

The hike up is gorgeous too!
This is Glenwood Canyon...
You get to hike by the river the whole way up...
g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!
Matt took this using some of his new photo skillz...
perdy!

So there is our happy place!
Seriously one of my favorite places!

Now tell me...
where is your happy place?!

Comment...please...I am having
comment self confidence issues! hehe

**I also added 2 new recipes to the cookin blog!**

First time we went to Hanging Lake, we knew it was a one and 1/2 mile hike. We went to an early dinner first (Mexican) and then decided to go for a "stroll". I didn't know it was one and 1/2 miles straight up!!!! Nevertheless, it was beautiful and we have been back many times.

I think your little spot it pretty romantic too! I can see why you like it so much. You made me laugh, talking about how each year gets a little more taxing to hike up to it...

Love you!
