We spent several days last week in Meeker, Colorado in a big cabin on a bunch of beautiful property up in the mountains. It turned out to be one of those family trips that we needed, but we weren’t even sure just how much we needed it until we returned home. It felt so, so good.
Though I had my phone with me (pictures!), I hardly ever checked my phone. If I left it in a different room I wasn’t worried about it. We were breathing fresh (non smoky- thanks utah) air and really bonding with our family in a way that we just can’t do when we’re home. It was so rejuvenating to play outside or in the cabin with the boys and let them explore, get dirty and be adventurous. It was just what the doctor ordered.
After those great days spent in the mountains I am feeling so recharged, relaxed and motivated. Things I didn’t even realize I needed so badly in my life right now. So thanks, Colorado. I can’t wait for next year.
BOO ya! (get it?) October is finally here!
October, to me, is the beginning of the Holiday Season, and if you ask me there is truly no better time of year. I’m pumped. I’m getting good vibes thinking about this month. We have some fun plans and a lot of downtime with lots of moments to fill with fun, hopefully a lot of cleaning and organizing (September wasn’t my greatest month when it came to housework) and time bonding with my boys.
I’m hoping the air gets crisper, the middle of the day turns cooler and the smells become significantly more pumpkin-y. I hope we make it to lots of the Halloween/Fall-themed activities there are around Utah County because I know my boys (especially my 2 year old) would love them. I also hope it moves nice and slow, because next month is birthday month and I can’t wrap my head around the fact that I almost have a three and one year old.
Happy October, friends!! May all your dreams come true.
