Topher and I just got back from our annual road-trip around the midwest where we hiked our first four 14ers, explored new places and made new friends! Our first and the most exciting announcement, is that we are engaged! Topher got down on one knee at 14,295ft on the summit of Mt. Lincoln, in the beautiful state of Colorado and asked me to marry him. Although we've been telling a select few that we were already engaged/married even before then, it is now official! It was a trip full of humbling moments, bursts of laughter and plenty of celebrations that we will never forget.

Five states, 3,000 miles and two weeks later, we have a ton of content to go through and edit, multiple commissioned paintings to create and many other projects going on! We have taken over Backwoods' Instagram (@backwoodsretail), posting photographs from our trip and we're working on some gear reviews and destination guides for them to post very soon on their blog (www.backwoodsadventures.com/muddy-hands-blog)! The past couple weeks have been a blur of happiness and bliss, but we are glad to be home and ready to create some art and share our adventures with all of you! We'll be posting more on our blog in the near future so stay posted to see and read about this year's road trip and June's Feature of the Month. We're also posting photos to our Facebook page and Instagrams (@artistcouple_photo and @artistcouple_art.design)
