The Mountains

WHEW - This year has certainly started off in full force, and while I'm loving it - I'm feeling it too. So this Saturday was the perfect time to make an escape up to the mountains with friends. 

Apparently everyone else in Colorado was thinking the same thing, because it took us twice as long as it normally does to get there and by the time we made it, the mountains were packed. Like, no free parking available-packed.

So we did what any logical local would do and holed up in a bar to have a few drinks and watch some college basketball. After we celebrated a KU win in Breckenridge, we headed back to Keystone to make a few runs. 

Luckily the crowds had cleared out, so we were able to stay for a couple of hours. 

And experience this magnificent day on top of a mountain. 

Which is often just what I need to clear my head, put it all back in perspective and silently reveal in the beauty and vastness of this life.

The January Cure via Apartment Therapy

For me, a large part of living with intention includes the actual physical space that I live in. So when I read about Apartment Therapy's January Cure challenge, I knew it was for me. 

A month ago we moved to a new apartment and haven't quite found our perfect fit yet. While we've made lots of progress, we also still have some boxes hanging out and our snowboarding gear is just piled up on our bedroom floor. I really liked our last apartment and enjoy our cozy, new space even more, so I'm ready to take charge!

As a challenge junkie, what I like about this one is that I can follow others blogging live about their process. That and the cute little calendar to I get hang up. 

I plan to post some photos of our place along the way, so stay tuned!

Ringing in 2014

Hello, Beautiful.

New Year's Eve is one of my favorite nights - mentally preparing to close the books on one year and start the next with 365 blank pages.

We spent the last hours of 2013 and the first of 2014 with friends, both new and old, at one of our favorite bars in Old Town.

Enjoying some drinks...

Lots of laughs...

And of course a sweet kiss at midnight. 

Happy 2014 Everyone!
