In 2003, Madonna kissed Brittney Spears at the VMA's, Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" was a Billboard top hit, and Ryan and I began an amazing journey when he bravely asked me to "be his girlfriend" (pre-Facebook official world, too). Eleven amazing years later and there's no person I'd rather adventure through life with - and adventure, we certainly do.
The views never translate and the enormity of the moment is never completely conveyed, but I've captured some beauties from our annual anniversary trip. This year it was through Vermont (Stowe, Burlington, Lake Champlain) and then two days at our favorite spot in Lake George.
Highlights from our getaway include scenic "leaf peeping" drives, multiple hikes, great meals, many bottles of wine, popcorn and a movie next to a freshly built indoor fire, endless spa services, an hour of complete quiet sitting on a park bench breathing in each other and the view of Lake Champlain - just ultimate relaxation. [PS: I totally recommend the Topnotch Resort and Spa in Stowe]
Okay, pull up Youtube, search "Road Trippin'" by Red Hot Chili Peppers (our go-to road trip theme song) and press play as you scroll through the below photos.
"Road trippin' with my two favorite allies. Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies. It's time to leave this town. It's time to steal away. Let's go get lost anywhere in the USA. Let's go get lost. Let's go get lost."
No amount of time with you would ever be enough. thank you for the wonderfully special eleven years, though. XO
