  • BBQ that turned into all-night adventure … when your friends wear outfits like this and hang out in art galleries until way past bars close, what else could you expect?

  • New crafts!

  • My girl crew. This week: late night phone calls, wine bombs and hunters, champagne + steaks + bikinis, black skinny jeans, and moby.
  • Writing about what is quite possibly my fave topic: giving + getting, shopping on sites that donate to charities.
  • I’m going to be honest, I’m struggling to find the good in some of the things that happened this week, but I know good must be there. More time to focus on myself, my personal growth, and figuring out what I really want.

I have so much to be thankful for this week, and as I fly to Houston for my grandfather’s memorial service, I’m even more appreciative of not only what a wonderful family I was born into but what a wonderful family I’ve been lucky enough to gather in my friends in Aspen, Austin, and everywhere else.

  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAMA!! Wishing a wonderful day to my best friend, business partner, confidant, and the best mom in the whole world!
  • lake powell houseboatAn absolutely amazing trip to Lake Powell with my bestie and a ton of new friends … I literally wore my bikini 12 hours a day for three days straight. Jet skis, wakeboarding (I got up!), canyons, sunbathing, lounging, NO sunburn, and …
  • I jumped off a 40-foot cliff! FORTY. FEET. TALL. It was possibly the most terrifying thing I’ve ever asked myself to do, and the thrill was absolutely amazing. Worth it!
  • Being the recipient of someone’s first-ever gchat (who hasn’t gchatted?!)
  • Porch-sittin’ in my new adirondack chairs.
  • Discovering that a lot of songs I love but didn’t know who sang them are by the band Love and Theft … and then listening to their entire World Wide Open album literally over and over again (at least five times in a row, per day, for the entire week).

  • I’m very fortunate to have an amazing family. My mind is with my dad a lot this week as we watched my grandpa lose his fight with Alzheimer’s… love you dad (LYD?!)!
  • Wine tasting, shopping, and eating more food than necessary (from at least four food carts) in Portland. Awesome!
  • The kennel in Aspen, which I have said before is like summer camp for dogs. With a webcam! The staff there is the absolute best.
  • Susie’s Consignment coming through again with a tags-still-on Betsey Johnson gown in a gorgeous clarified-butter yellow for an upcoming black-tie wedding. I’ve been wanting a yellow gown since as long as I can remember wanting a gown. I can’t wait to wear it. And to post pics.

  • First Moab trip (considered Aspen Annex in the spring), where I also learned to rock climb and fell in love with the sport … why does my brother always know the cool stuff before me?! Also visited Arches National Park and took a jumping pic below Delicate Arch.
  • If you had told me I’d be in the desert on a girls trip a few years ago, I’d have laughed and called you crazy. But there I was. Love how you end up where you’re supposed to be … and that the only constant is change.
  • FGT, FGTT, FGTC, and “Getting a skiing backpack in Aspen is basically an engagement ring. At the least, you’re going steady.”
  • ranch strider_q Strider & Q
  • Aspen CrossFit workout with some cool duders.

  • First Woody Creek Tavern experience was a most excellent one, culminating in the entire town of Aspen at Regal …
  • Learning to dirt bike! I’m so badass:

    learning to dirtbike

    Yeah, that’s a 450

  • Continuing to build my business savvy … always learning. Related: finishing an intense contract that challenged that savvy.
  • Santa Barbara wine paired with a delicious multiple-course dinner.
  • Anticipation of trips (research shows anticipation of travel creates a LOT of happiness) coming up for the next three weekends!
