We are so excited for our first annual
Have Yourself a Very Swoony Christmas event,
Many book characters seem to become a part of our lives.
Sometimes we really want to get to know them better
and enjoy their romance for just a little bit longer.
Each Thursday, we will be spotlighting
one of our swoony Christmas couples.
This week, we'll be getting to know
Charlee & Ryan
from More Trouble in Loveland by Jennifer Peel.
1. What do you like to do on a romantic date?
We love to head up to one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Estes Park to have dinner and then walk the Riverwalk.
2. What do you like most about each other?
Our fierce loyalty and how we support each other’s goals and dreams.
3. What is your favorite way to spend time together?
Hanging out with our son, shooting hoops, or cuddling on the couch together watching a movie. And of course, jumping on the trampoline.
4. What are three things on your bucket list?
Run the Boston Marathon (that’s more Ryan, but since I love him so much, I’ll play along or basically die with him doing it.)
Attend the NBA Championship Series games.
Go to Northern Wales and bounce on the world’s largest underground trampoline.
5. What is “your song”?
Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran (It was the first song we ever danced to.)
6. What is the craziest date you’ve been on?
For Ryan’s 34th birthday I made him a scavenger hunt complete with a map and clues leading to his buried birthday present. My favorite part of the night was watching him sing karaoke to My Girl to get one of his clues.
7. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Sleeping under the Christmas Tree. No children allowed.
8. How would you describe each other to someone else in three words?
Ryan would describe Charlee as annoyingly-charming, spontaneous, beautiful-heart.
Charlee would describe Ryan as all-mine, the-best-of-the-best, thoughtful.
