Hello and happy Friday everyone!

Well we did it . . . while Austin and I were in Colorado a few of weeks ago, we decided to attempt to climb Pikes Peak - summit altitude 14,110 ft! It was one of our goals when we left in January to be in good enough shape when we came back to climb Pikes Peak, and we did it!

And it was HARD!!!

It was the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life!

But Austin wouldn't let me quit . . . no matter how much I whined or complained, he wouldn't believe that I "couldn't" do it!

And I love that about him!

Austin purifying our water . . .

. . . and cooking our supper

Okay, there were a few moments on the side of the mountain that I wanted to chuck him off said mountain, but I really do love that he loves me enough to help me grow and to stretch me beyond what is comfortable and easy!

He so totally rocks!

We made it!
