Don't Die Wondering



By now most of you are probobly thinking that I signed some big single digit contract that has me surfing cloud nine.... As excited as I am for the details of next season to unfold, I have even more exciting news to report but first I recommend you brace yourself in your office chair.....



Bikes weren't the only thing Ross and I were checking out in Madison. Last Friday night I saw the woman of my dreams from across the room and at that moment I fell in love. Sounds like a story book I know, but this is the real deal. Three days later I was down on one knee asking Tracy to marry me.... she said yes!



I have to thank Fisher's own hipster, Jesse LaLonde for making the introductions.... Crazy how life unfolds sometimes but one thing is for sure, I won't die wondering what life could have been like if I had asked that amazing woman from across the room to spend the rest of her life with me.... at another loss for words!

Sweet! I expect more hot girl and less shaggy dude pics on this blog. I knew I bookmarked this site for a reason.

Seriously though, congrats. Marriage to the right person is as good as it gets.

Nick. Are you purposely trying to write the "storybook" life? Congrats. That is really something man, and how it all transpired. I guess ometimes you just know and you go with it.
Is she covered in ink too? Now, hook the girl up with some glasses.

Nick,

Congratulations! I can't wait to meet her. And, I'm proud that you were brave enough to recognize what you felt and take the chance on love at first sight.

Tracy, welcome to the family!

That is awesome Nick. When I ran into you at sushi last night and you said to read your blog update, I certainly didn't expect to read this. Honestly, I thought that maybe you had finally learned how to ride a wheelie or something! This is SO much cooler! Congratulations!!

Are you moving to Madison? Is she moving to Boulder? Are you auctioning your blackbook in the eBay store? Now that shit's worth money! Let us in on the plans.

Congrats, you crazy fool! When's the big day?

It's an amazing story. With a whirlwind encounter like yours, did you even have time to text message her dad for his permission?

So happy for you!

Congrats Nick,

If you need a guitarist to play for your wedding let me know. I might be a Boulder resident possibly next year as well. I might be working on my Doctorate at UC-Boulder

All the Best,
