home on the range

In a couple days I'll be en route to Denver, where I grew up.  I have been gone for over 10 years now, which is hard to believe!  I am definitely a 'California girl' now but I have a huge soft spot for Colorado.  It brings me such joy to visit my parents with my husband & kids {especially since they introduced us in the first place!  I still love that Andy has to call Barbara 'mom' now!  eheh}  We still have a lot of great friends there and I love bringing my children back home to show them all the things I grew up doing, exposing them to the amazing landscapes and the incredible blue sky that shines over head more than 200 days out of the year!  

'Vintage' Colorado.   My dad is a vintage car collector, actually he builds them from the ground up, '69 Dodge being one of his favorites.  This reminds me of roadster runs and the many road trips we did as kids.

This has to be one of my favorite places on Earth!  Before I moved, I had a girls weekend with my mother and sister near here, we woke up super early and hiked in from Aspen.   I remember it being so peaceful and serene.  No people yet,  just our quiet conversation, incredible views and deer milling around the meadow. 

Who doesn't love a good Aspen tree, especially in the Fall!
Long open roads & breath taking scenery

An abandoned farm, with a cool old rusty truck, a little bit of country for ya.
