  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Biking with Nali every morning is an awesome new routine to start the day
  • New friends for laughter and fast-talking, and old friends I can always count on
  • Insane busy-ness … it reminds me to appreciate when insane business slows down (ever so slightly)
  • Colored bumper plates at the Aspen Club. It’s good to be back.

  • A perfect Sunday spent lounging by the pool and beheading (or is is de-tailing?) crawfish. [#bastian]
  • The horses. Equine therapy is real.
  • Sand volleyball. Summer of domination commences.
  • Discipline for Nali! She’s even learning to catch treats in her mouth!
  • Kelp noodles. The more I eat them, in my colossal lunch salad, the more I love them.

  • Um, hello? Guys? I have been writing this ENTIRE MONTH as 039912 … it’s actually 04. Apparently I am stuck in March. That doesn’t actually make me Feel Good but I thought I needed to say something about it🙂
  • Highlands Closing Day Party. Probably my favorite day this entire year—I wore not one but TWO awesome onesies, had all my favorite people in one place, everyone was dancing their faces off in costumes for HOURS … what more could a girl want?! Oh, gluten-free basil pesto pizza in a hot tub followed by snagging a pair of PUCCI ski pants and playing a hilarious pictionary/telephone hybrid game? Yes. Seriously, best day ever.
    Aspen Highlands CLosing Day on the mountainThis is the party on the mountain, it only gets crazier as we ski down! Unfortunately, no full-body pics of my flowered one-piece suit with attached skirt and off-the shoulder styling exist … but don’t worry, it’s an investment piece, it WILL be making more appearances in my life.
  • Accidentally riding switch for at least half my last run down Ajax of the season … and I still love snowboarding. Goodbye winter season of skiing and riding, you were amazing!
  • Hot “old lady” date with a friend, where we sat at the kids’ bar and drank so much water that the entire waitstaff took bets on who would get up to pee first (it was me, and the cute bartender won).
  • Summer tires. Back to ridin’ on 22s.
