we had a zoom call last night with a lot of the faces you see here, and it made me realize a few things. namely, i really, really, really wish we could re-do the start of 2020. anyone else? it also made me realize how much i missed these badass humans and how much i long for another weeks-long outdoor adventure with my person.
we spent nearly 3 weeks in the grandest of canyons at the beginning of this year, launching on new years eve 2019. it’s very difficult to put a trip like this into words. it’s a place that leaves it’s mark on you whether you’re prepared for it or not. a place i’ve wanted to see and experience and smell and taste for as long as i can remember, and at least as long as i’ve known casey. this is his happy place, where his eyes sparkle and he fully embodies the best version of himself. experiencing this canyon with him made me fall in love with him in an entirely new way.
we had quite the celebratory trip – two birthdays (mine and casey’s) aaaaaand we got engaged a few days into the trip. i really could ramble on about each day, but all i can say is if you ever have the chance to experience this place, go.
