Off To Colorado

Well it looks like I’m about to embark on my first real vacation since I started working at Rackspace over three years ago! Yeah, I’ve been that busy, but it has paid off. Heading out this Friday!

Zahra and I are going to head up to Woodland Park, CO where my parents just finished rennovating a small house. They also have a cabin in the area as well that they bought and fixed up years ago, but I have yet to make it there. If you know me personally, you no doubt know that I get stuck traveling quite a bit for work which, in my opinion is not very fun because you never have much time to go see things – its just get the work done and get back to the office ASAP.

We are going to relax with NO work involved and visit some places such as: Pikes Peak, Cripple Creek, Mollie Kathleen Mine and whatever else we can find. Pictures and some HD video to come once we get back (from my new Canon SX200). It’s going to be a blast – and you can’t beat the cost of the lodging – FREE. Thanks Mom & Dad!

I'm Engaged!

I did it – Saturday evening I proposed to my girlfriend! She is the most amazing person I’ve ever met and its clear that we share a love like no other. We have yet to be apart since the day we met and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I knew from the beginning that I had fallen for her, from the moment she opened her door the night I picked her up for our first date (seriously) :)

If you had asked me before I met her if I believed in love at first sight I wouldn’t have known what to say, but today I can firmly respond that yes, there is absolutely such a thing! How often does it happen? I don’t know, but I can tell you that it is amazing and I will be forever grateful for being so lucky.

I am the happiest person alive and I actually owe it all to my Mom who set the two of us up. So thank you Mom for everything! See below for some pictures of Zahra and I (and the ring of course)!
