Sometimes, God works in really mysterious ways. When we started this business, I never would have guessed that future clients of ours would one day truly become some of our very best friends. But — it happened : ) And we are so thankful for His ways!
Shane + Devon got married three months before we did. Once our own wedding day happened + Caleb moved to Madison, these two became one of our very first “married couple” friends! Nine months after we got married, we bought our first condo … right next door to Shane + Devon : ) We LOVE being neighbors with these two — sharing weekly PIC (Partners in Chipotle) nights, doggy play dates, game nights, weekend getaways, + neighborly chats at the mailbox ; )
This past weekend, we brought these two up to Caleb’s hometown for one last ski/snowboard trip of the season before Wisconsin (hopefully) warms up for spring! We had the strangest weather for our day on the hill … alternating between warm sun + windy, whiteout snow conditions. So sometimes skiing was great + other times we just booked it for the chalet! (However, one time, the conditions changed while we were on the chair lift up the hill + we found ourselves snowboarding to the bottom of the hill in conditions where we could barely see 10 feet in front of us … yikes)!
The hill we were at is actually where Caleb proposed to me two + a half years ago — on November 29th, 2013 — opening day of Granite Peak Ski Area that year : ) The trip was actually our first time back at the hill since we got engaged, so I was, of course, a little emotional!! Such precious memories at that place! : ) Besides our time skiing/snowboarding at Granite Peak, we stayed with Caleb’s grandma + played plenty of board games (with lots of home cooked food, of course! Grandma’s are so good at that)! It was such a fun + relaxing weekend away — perfect timing as we gear up for the craziness starting in just two weeks!! But, who am I kidding … I can’t wait for wedding season to start! : ) Happy Tuesday!!
On the trip we learned that Granite Peak was one of the first ski areas in all of North America, opening its slopes in 1937! Yeah Wisconsin!
Devon’s just a little bit shorter than I am ; )
Cheers to a great day on the hills — with NO falling!! : )
