    Around two years ago I proposed to my soul-mate a mile back in the woods on the edge of a 100 foot bluff.

    Last Saturday we said "I do".

    Then we went to Grand Marais, MN for an amazing few days. We hiked, relaxed in our rental tiny cabin, and talked about the future. Just wanted to share with you all...

    We loved the tiny cabin so much that we are talking about building and living in one in the next few years.

    The view from the cabin was amazing.

    We also did some epic hiking.

    The waves were around 16 feet per the local reports.

    And of course, a vacation isn't complete without beer and some fried cheese curds.

    Congrats! Always great to marry your best friend who enjoys the same activities. And on top of it all, she apparently didn't push you over the cliff in the first pic, HAHA:D
