A couple of summers ago, Ryan took me on my first hike (other than through the grand canyon). It was a very spontaneous trip, so I thought. I was visiting him in Birmingham, where he was living at the time, and so we thought why not? We packed two sandwiches and lots of water and off we went towards Mount Cheaha! North Alabama is absolutely beautiful. The mountains are breathtaking and who knew we had so many waterfalls? The hike itself was pretty short, but we spent a lot of time enjoying the views.

|Look at that view! (ow ow hottie!)|
As we were walking we came up to this…
We decided to climb it and it was well worth this view…

As we were walking back to the car, Ryan told me he had a surprise for me. He had tickets to the Jimmy Buffet show in Gulf Shores! The show was to help benefit the victims of the oil spill. It was on the beach, and was a dream come true for me. I’m a huge Parrothead and had never been to one of his concerts. Of course we made a pit stop by my house to freshen up and grab our swim suits. We had so much fun!

This was literally the perfect day. I later found out that he was planning to propose to me that day, but couldn’t because my ring was still being made. He proposed two weeks later. 🙂
