Mountain Dreaming

mountain-dreaming-2I’m trying to focus on reality at the moment, but I’m definitely mountain dreaming! This past weekend in Copper Mountain, Colorado, was amazing. I was so honored to be a part of Kristin’s, one of my best friends, bridal party. I’ve known her since first grade and she was my first friend when I moved to the U.S. I’ll post some photos from the wedding and weekend soon in a photo journal post.

Driving through all the mountains was actually really fun and not as scary as I thought. Every time I go to Colorado, I say the same thing – that everything looks so fake; photos don’t do it justice. I loved seeing everything in lush greens and just being able to explore new places. I posted some photos on Instagram, so check them out and if you were lucky enough to follow me already, you caught some of my live Instagram Stories 🙂

Denver Photo Journal

Denver Photo Journal - 12Well, this is the last of my spring break photo journals ending with Denver. I’m kind of sad that the photo journals have come to an end, but this just means that summer photo journals will soon be here. Not like I’m counting down until the last day of school (May 27th), but it will be nice to live a different pace again with much more ease.

After spending almost a week in Utah with Jill, I then flew to Denver to visit Kristin, my friend since first grade. She moved out there about a year ago with her now fiancé and in just a few short months they will be getting married in Colorado on top of a mountain. How cool, right?! I’m in their wedding party and I can’t wait to celebrate their special day! It was my first time in Denver, but my second time in Colorado. Remember this post?! We visited the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, saw some buffalo and sat on a mountain peak – pretty exciting stuff if you ask me. I said this last time I visited Colorado, but it’s so beautiful there. I guess the theme of spring break turned out to be exploring natural beauty and appreciating the now.

I felt that in both states I felt calmer and less stressed; partially because I didn’t have to work, but also I didn’t feel the need to rush through things and to keep up with the Chicago pace. It’s nice though to shut my eyes a few minutes a day and recall everything I saw and it makes me smile. Until next time, Denver.

Colorado Photo Journal

Colorado - 1Wow, this week flew by and I can’t believe I was just in Colorado last weekend. It was my first time out there and I had such a fun and amazing time. I visited a friend from a long time ago and he was such a great tour guide. He made the trip very memorable and I’m really glad that we were able to connect again.

Everything is so beautiful in Colorado – the mountains, wildlife and nature in general. I’m still in awe of all the natural beauty everywhere there that it seemed as though time had stopped and we were painted in the foreground of an amazing masterpiece. I even “hiked” up a mountain which I thought I’d never make it to the top, saw a waterfall (which are my absolute favorites), and couldn’t believe we were still in Colorado when we stopped at Nederland – it’s seriously so beautiful. Oh how can I forget, we also stayed at the cutest log cabin place in the mountains! The whole trip felt like a dream and I didn’t want to wake up from it. On that note, this post is definitely helping me plan my next trip out there because I miss it already. Enjoy the views 🙂
