^^ I can’t even begin to believe that later this week I’ll be posting my year in review. Unbelievable. I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday with their loved ones! The above photo is from the mountain cabin where Chris and I holed up in front of the fire for three days through Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and the day after. That was one of the views from our windows. It was splendid. I’ll be back later to blog a bit more about it, as well as post the year that was 2015. Until then – bis bald, friends!
^^ Well, friends, Christmas week is upon us, and I am beyond ready for some rest and rejuvenation. Chris headed to the mountains this past weekend (where he sent me the above photo), while I stayed home and relaxed and caught up on my magazines and Netflix. We’ll be heading to the mountains again for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, since we rented a cabin there. It’s our first Christmas without any family, and while I’m excited for our plans, I’m ready to feel a bit nostalgic for the Christmas’s of yore with family running around, as well. My big ole’ year-end update is coming up soon (we took in a lot of these beautiful United States the past 12 months), so I look forward to putting that together and moving on to 2016. Bis bald, friends!
^^ Well Christmas is most definitely on its way, but if you ask me, it can’t get here soon enough. Still, I enjoy the way that Denver really goes all out to celebrate the holiday. I grabbed coffee with a friend in Union Station on Saturday morning and got to check out these cute little carolers on my out. Hope you guys are all enjoying this festive season, as well. Bis bald!
^^ I love how ridiculously red this photo is, and the fact that you can barely even tell that Penny has plopped herself down right smack dab in the middle of the most comfortable chair in the room. She’s no fool. Anyway, this week and weekend was spent getting things back in order after my sis and bro-in-law left and putting the finishing touches on some holiday decorating. Even though Chris and I won’t actually be in our apartment for Christmas, it still feels nice to have it all dressed up and fancy. Nighttime is my favorite right now when I can turn off all the big lights and just turn on all the holiday stuff and relax. Bis bald, friends — hope your holiday season is going well!
^^ Happy first week of December, folks! So I had the most amazing Thanksgiving ever when Chris conspired with my bro-in-law to have he and my sister fly to Denver for long weekend. Amazing. It was seriously the best surprise ever, and we had so much fun. Now we’re through with Thanksgiving and moving on to Christmas and then the New Year … it’s just insane! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with loved ones, and is gearing up for the festive holiday season. Bis bald, friends!
^^ Well we’ve skipped over Thanksgiving and gone straight to Christmas here in Denver, people — and I’m okay with that. Of course Chris and I do have a pretty delicious menu planned for Thanksgiving, though, if I do say so myself, but you know I love me some Christmas celebrations, so I’m okay with this early onslaught.
^^ Hey there, friends! So Chris and I are still in New Orleans, headed back to Colorado later tonight. It’s been an amazing time, as anyone who has ever been here can I’m sure agree. We had our last dinner last night at Bacchanal, this amazing little backyard venue with live jazz music (gotta have the live jazz music!) and delicious eats. I’ll be back later this week with more of a New Orleans update, till then – bis bald, friends!
