Maddie is an adventurer. It’s no surprise that after graduation she was looking for a change of scenery. Luckily she landed a job in Denver, Colorado.  So, on a whim she accepted, and the Ohio native packed her bags and headed to the Mile High City, curious and unafraid. One can only imagine she was listening to John Denver’s Rocky Mountain High as she trekked her old sedan across the plains. 😉 But she wasn’t planning to stay long, see, Maddie’s got this mile-long list of “Places to see” that just keeps growing.

Little did she know the hold this big city under the Rockies would have on her heart.

A few years later and a state apart, Jake was missing life in the big city.  So he left small-town Cheyenne, Wyoming and headed to Denver, in search of a little more excitement and a little more opportunity.  As fate would have it, the very night he made that move to Denver, he met the woman who would change everything.

You see, Jake’s new roommates (and long-time friends) invited over a “cool girl” they knew. That night Maddie and Jake bonded over Game of Thrones and dogs. They had an instant connection and needless to say, Jake fell for Maddie quickly… even though it took Maddie a little longer to come around to the handsome man from Wyoming. After a few months of friendship, they both knew they found something unexpectedly special and decided to make it official! Together they make an amazing team.

Two whole humans, joining together in partnership.  Fishing, dogs, travel, hockey, and above it all, loving one another.

Maddie & Jake,
