2017 - WHAT A YEAR!

A personal update...

In January, I reached the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro with 12 other amazing women to raise money for the Africa New life Dream Medical Center in Kigali, Rwanda. We raised over 350K on our climb and every one of us summited the top. It was a dream come true. It had been on my bucketlist for years.

In May, Austin Mann proposed to me and our story reached the far ends of the Earth. 

ABC, TIME, InStyle, Brides, Southern Living, Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, & The Knot to name a few shared our news. We really couldn't believe it. So many people wrote us encouraging notes and congratulated us. 


On November 18th, Austin & I were married in a small ceremony at the beautiful Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado. My prayers were answered and It snowed the night before our wedding. Haley Rynn Ringo captured the most incredible images I could possibly imagine of our 3 day weekend. If you are looking for someone to capture your special day, I highly recommend her.


In December, I landed on my 6th continent, Antarctica, with my husband. 


I couldn't be more thankful for all these huge milestones this year. And I'm super excited for this next adventure with my Husband, Austin.
