The back story is all about this amazing woman. Several months ago, her fiance unexpectedly called off their wedding.
She had recently started working as the executive director of our Child Advocacy Center so she wasn't entirely comfortable sharing this personal news.
Months went by and our friendship grew. Eventually she shared the sad news and the fact that she had been trying so hard to dedicate herself to her new position.
She decided that she wanted to embrace the change and she wanted to make the weekend that she was to be married something entirely liberating.
That is exactly what we did.
It just so happened to fall on the same weekend as the "Tough Mudder" in VT.
We had several friends who ran the course. We rented a house on a lake.
She was surrounded by love. Her best friend was there with us. Did I mention how amazing she is?
And... what happens in VT, stays in VT.
