You could meet one or too many if you go out on the slopes over the weekend somewhere.
I met her the first time on the lift ride up to the top of Heavenly mtn. We hit it off pretty good after few laps down the mtn. She ski and I ride. No problem as long as she smiles. You know that cute smile when you see one. During the week stay at the hotel down in SouthLakeTahoe, I've bumped into her again few times at the Starbuck, restaurants, and the lobby so from there we end up having a pleasant convo. I was stuck with the group having its' own plans on where to hit (Squaw, Kirkwood, Northstar, etc) So she couldn't join us at that time. Anyway,that was back in March 2002.
Fast forward 1.5 years later.
I thought I saw her walking past me at the corn maze area in northern VA and it was dark. I sent short msg to her pager asking if that was her I saw walking past a few minutes ago. She said yes. For some reasons, we couldn't find each other in the maze or in the parking lot. But we kept in touch by emails.
December 2003 - She and I end up in the same group of friends renting the house near Wisp for the skiing weekend. We hit it off great on and off the slope.
January - March 2004 - Just two of us, we went skiing/snowboarding at few different local ski areas.
Spring/Summer we went seakayaking, biking, hiking, camping etc.
Winter 2004/2005 we went skiing/snowboarding including the trip to Lake Tahoe.
We got married OCT 2005 and went on the honeymoon up in the Poconos (snowmobiling, skiing, horseriding, sleighride, tubing, etc) during December 2005.
Little background on my wife:
- learn to ski at age 4
- her father is a ski patroller parttime near Cleveland OH
- knew how to have fun in the snow growing up near Lake Ontario & Lake Erie (Cleveland, Rochester, Buffalo)
Last year, we bought the house on a small hill. She asked me if we could try ski down the front yard when it snow.
Now you see why I love my wife.
