The family I work for jetted off to the Philippines for three weeks so that left me with a lot of free time. Since Uriel graduated from college back in December, we decided that this would be a perfect time to take a trip. So we chose to head over to Colorado. Uriel actually has a lot of family there so it was really awesome to finally get to meet them and for Uriel to see them again after a couple of years. Not only that, but I’m absolutely mountain- obsessed (when you’re born and raised in the Midwest, it happens) and I couldn’t wait to be surrounded by them.
We actually snapped these pictures as we made out way out of the Rockies, where Uriel’s aunt and uncle live, and into Denver, where we would be staying for our last night. Kind of like our last moment to really take it all in. Uriel and I have done plenty of traveling with each other in the almost two and half years of our relationship, but this trip was the first time it’s just been the two of us. As cheesy as it sounds, I know our relationship has grown because of it, even if it’s just a little tiny bit.
When I took this last picture of Uriel, I couldn’t help but thank God for this specific moment. Here I am, in this absolutely breath-taking place that God created, taking a picture of the love of my life that God sent my way. It’s moments like these that really make time stand still for a couple of seconds and make you forget how stressful and chaotic life may be. We really are blessed.
