Our relationship grew up in Boulder, where we fell in love over hikes, movies, podcasts, road trips, and quiet nights together. When Katie was accepted into Harvard University to pursue her Master's of Public Health, there was no hesitation over the decision to chase that adventure together as well, and we enjoyed a couple of fun years (and endured some frigid winters) in Boston. We returned to Boulder in early 2020, excited to return to a place that we love, just before, well, you know. COVID brought both challenges and opportunities. Our engagement in September 2020 was a bright spot in an otherwise dark year, and we capped it on a high note: our perfect specimen of a dog, Bertie!
