Adam and Katie met in February of 2019. Their first date was at Modern Pizza in New Haven (the start of Katie's very important New Haven pizza tour). The next week, Katie packed her bags for a girls ski trip out west. By the time her plane touched down in Denver, Adam had created five scavenger hunts featuring the mountains she was skiing at and the town she were staying in. He researched the mountains, made the riddles, and sent them to Katie each and every day while she was away. Long story short, it didn't take long before Katie realized she had met her match.
The following week, Katie invited Adam to spend the weekend with her in a Tiny House Resort in the Catskills of New York - in the middle of winter. It was their first trip away, the two of them and their dogs, 300 SF in a tiny home and days spent exploring Hudson towns and ice covered trails. Okay, she really met her match.
The rest of 2019 was filled with trips around the globe, weekends in the woods with their dogs, and afternoons with family and friends. They survived a year of I-95 traffic and traversing the state to see each other.
As 2020 came into view and before the year ended or a proposal started, they booked a house in Yosemite to swap I Do's and Me Too's. They invited their families to California, they told their family and friends, and they planned the perfect party with everyone they love back here in Connecticut. Oh and yes, they finally got engaged.
