And just like that…it’s fall in Colorado.
And I LOVE IT!!!
Because do you know what comes next?
And skiing. And Thanksgiving. And more skiing. And boots and scarves and freshly baked Beaver Creek chocolate chip cookies.
But let’s get back to fall because I’m so happy that it’s here.
Fall brings us several things around here:
…ski pass purchases (ouch).
…my birthday (it’s Friday, double ouch).
…and over the last few years…my in-laws (I know you think i’m going to say triple ouch, but I like them, so HA you’re wrong).
This fall was no different. Jay and Heidi arrived last Thursday for a weekend of good food, delicious wine and the always breathtaking Colorado views.
Last year we all went to Aspen, but this time we decided to stay a little bit closer to home and headed up to the Echo Lake area instead.
It’s wonderful here in the summer, spectacularly fun in the winter, but as far as showcasing Colorado’s natural beauty goes…fall takes the cake.
After our exhausting viewing of the landscape we decided that visiting a Colorado winery was our only option.
The wine was good, the food was good, but the entertainment was great…
…unless you’re Jon in which case you hate all things adorable.
The rest of the weekend was action packed with a concert in Boulder on Friday, some shopping and sightseeing, a baseball game and a relaxing Sunday brunch at Lola.
Who doesn’t start breakfast with an order of donuts?
Who doesn’t follow donuts with lobster filled deviled eggs?
There was also a fly over and several minutes educating Jay on Asian rap artists.
It was a lovely weekend jam packed with things I’d like to do every weekend if I could. It’s always nice to have visitors here, especially when it’s family. Jon and I both love sharing what we find so irresistible about Colorado with people.
I wish fall could last forever, but just this morning it was dumping snow in the mountains. It’s only a matter of time before it makes it’s way to the foothills and eventually Denver. So cheers to your fall, wherever you are, soak it up because it always goes way too fast.
