Life is good

I haven’t had the chance to let it all sink in, but a recent slow time allowed me to really think about what happened two months ago.

Most girls spend their whole lives dreaming of their big day. They dream of their prince charming. Of the life they are going to live. I never did.

To be honest, I never thought I’d get married.  I had all these expectations and realizations of what my life would look like and it involved a career, house, and children, but the man associated to all that was always a blur.

Until July 23rd 2011 at 5:25pm. My amazing boyfriend Dan Martell brought me to the end of the dock where I grew up, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. Wow!  This was all surreal.

I couldn’t be happier. Dan is such an amazing man. A best friend. A confidant.  And, as many already know, a brilliant entrepreneur. He pushes me to be a better/stronger entrepreneur, motivates me to think bigger and to ‘reach for the stars’.

I could babble on for hours, but for the sake of this post, I wanted to say again and again, Thank You Dan. You F***** rock, and I love you.

    Congrats Renee! I already told you, but it felt right to tell you again on your official blog post.

    Things couldn’t be better. 🙂

    Thrilled for you two.

    Now, maybe Dan will finally write that “Startups and Relationships” guest post he’s promised me for OnStartups over 3 years ago.

    […] All that being said I need to mention two amazing people, Renee and Ethan. Last August I became the luckiest guy on earth when Renee said yes! She’s been so supportive as we’ve been heads down on building out the company. Secondly, I want to thank Ethan for being an amazing co-founder and a best friend. Two weeks after getting engaged, I got a call from Ethan letting me know that paperwork was finalized with Demandforce. That was easily the best month of my life. […]
