I’m incredibly lucky to get to tag along with Eric to Aspen, where he’s attending a conference. The arrangements really came together at the last minute, so it feels especially like an unexpected gift. Saturday we made it to Denver, but then our flight to Aspen was canceled due to a storm. We made it in with no trouble on Sunday afternoon, and now we’re taking it all in!
Neither of us has ever been to a place like this, such a storybook winter wonderland. Neither of us has ever stayed at a place in which our immediate view out the window is a gigantically tall mountain. It is truly majestic.
And they’ve still got their holiday decorations up, which is extra charming. I really like this picture because of the icicle on the lamp post. I didn’t notice until this moment that there are two people hugging in the bottom of the frame, and that makes me like it even more.
Since we got here, I have been hilariously (and rather dangerously) sliding around in my cowboy boots on the ice (shouldn’t they be all-terrain?!), and our first mission was to find snow chains for my boots! I didn’t even know they made those, but Eric is a genius, and they are now in my possession, so the sliding is at a bare minimum. Success!
