Winter Wonderland

Snow, snow, and more snow. Our poor newly planted aspens are heavily weighed down with 6+ inches of snow, even our pine trees are looking pretty droopy. Ryan tried shaking a good portion of the snow off all the plants so hopefully there is no permanent damage. It is winter wonderland here in Colorado!

80 to 30

Just the other day it was 80 degrees, we were outside roasting while we carved our pumpkins. Tonight it is freezing and we are getting dumped on with snow! I guess it is officially winter.

What is everyone going to be for Halloween?

Changing Colors

The official day of fall was September 23, but I think it is just now hitting its peak. We are enjoying these few short weeks until it is hello frigid air.  This is when I like to go into complete hibernation mode. To take it all in we took a drive up Boulder Canyon to see the changing colors.  We drove a new route that looped us around to Estes Park. It was magnificent. We discovered an aspen grove that glowed bright with yellow leaves. Ohh it is so beautiful this time of year, please stay as long as you can!

That's what friends are for

Ryan was gone all weekend long on a leadership retreat for school, which would have left me home alone. My good friend Katie came to my rescue. Katie and I went to college together; I will always cherish our friendship and it had been too long since we had seen each other! She’s never really been to Co, so I served as her tour guide. We toured multiple museums, ate at some local eateries, hiked the flatirons, shopped, and reminisced on the years past. Katie I love you and thank you for making the trip out!
