Moab in May 0

Last weekend we decided that we needed a little getaway, so we packed up the car and headed three hours west to Moab, Utah. Moab is known for its dramatic desert landscape, mountain biking, hiking, camping, four wheeling, and river expeditions. This was our first trip to Moab and we loved it! We tent camped […]

Thirteen Things About 2013 1

Well, it’s the end of another year and I feel the need to write an obligatory New Year’s post. First, though, I realized that I never shared our holiday card like I have in the past (you can see previous ones here: 2009, 2011, 2012). This year’s card wasn’t very Christmasy because, frankly, I got […]

Pack Like a Pro 3

One of my claims to fame is that I’m a notoriously light packer for trips. Case in point, I once traveled to Europe for the summer and took only what I could fit in a backpack. On another trip abroad, I packed everything in a carry-on suitcase for our two week honeymoon to Italy. (The […]

Celebration Staycation 1

Jason and I took a much-needed week off to celebrate his completion of the Colorado Bar exam. Although I didn’t spend the past several months years studying the way he did, I was still mentally exhausted just by the very thought of it. So, clearly, it was a hard-earned vacation for the both of us. […]

June Highlights 3

I just finished downloading all of the pics off of my camera from the past month. They are literally all over the map! Here are a few of the highlights from June. Carbondale is Basalt’s next door neighbor. When we need a change of pace, we love exploring Carbondale because it has a really cute […]

Harry Gates Hut Trip 0

This past weekend we went on a new adventure. Jason and I were invited to join four other couples for an overnight excursion to a backcountry hut. Believe it or not, even in late April there is still enough snow at the higher elevations for snow shoeing. The weather could not have been more perfect – […]

22 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day 1

Happy Earth Day, earthlings! Today is one of my favorite holidays because it provides an opportunity to give thanks to Mother Earth for her abundant blessings (fresh air! clean water!) and demonstrate support for environmental protection. It’s a perfect time to reevaluate your habits and consider making changes to become more eco-friendly. Don’t forget to […]

Still Dizzy from December 3

I’m still alive, promise! December almost swallowed me whole, though. Let’s see if I can remember some of the highlights. Well, I turned another year wiser on December 19th. I celebrated my special day in the hospital with my dad who was there getting a brand new hip. The best gift of all was that […]

Photo Book = $44.38, Montana Memories = Priceless 0

Whew, I finally finished our photo album from our Montana trip this summer! It turned out to be a big task considering we took several hundred photos. Even after I deleted the duplicates and crappy ones, I still had about 500 photos left to work with. Needless to say, it turned into a much bigger […]

Rocky Mountain High 1

Jason was in Denver last week at a conference for school, so I flew in after work on Friday to meet up with him. Fall is my favorite time of year in Colorado (well, pretty much my favorite time of year anywhere). The weather was glorious with highs in the low 70’s up in the […]
