We met at COSI, through mutual friends at a fundraiser – we’ll leave it to the reader to decide if it was over a romantic game of rat basketball, Joe rescuing Courtney from a terrifying fall from the high wire bike, or a spirited bidding session on the Periodic Table. What can we say, we’re obviously meant for each other (read: nerds).
After a year and a half full of travel, hiking, training for Pelotonia together, endless good food and wine, we took our most extensive trip to date. We planned a 10 day California road trip, spanning San Francisco, Big Sur, Napa, Sonoma and culminating at a good friend’s wedding in Lake Tahoe. Joe proposed oceanside in Big Sur, surrounded by sun and sand and not to be forgotten, the serenade of sea lions.
