M's Birthday, Part 1

Last night, we had a little party for M's birthday. We had a few friends over for cake and a bon fire in the back yard... the weather was perfect! Looking at these pictures, I feel so thankful for all the friends we have made here. It's so hard to believe that when we moved out here one and a half years ago, we didn't know anyone!




Happy birthday to my amazing husband!!! Let the celebrating continue.
I love you.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This morning, we went to the St. Patrick's Day parade in Old Town...

Of course, what would a parade be without bagpipes? 
Everyone was really into it... especially the kids. They were determined to lay hands on some candy.
M and I watching the parade...
The water in the fountain in Old Town Square was dyed green for the occasion...
Of course, Georgia had to investigate.


Have a marvelous weekend! xo

Spring Break

Hello there. We are in the middle of a lovely Spring Break week. The weather in Fort Collins has been appropriately sunny and warm, and we have been spending lots of time outdoors. My pale skin has seen the light of the sun for the first time in months! Hallelujah! M is already tan. It is very irritating.


This past weekend, we took a ski trip with some of our friends from college up to Copper. The mountains were absolutely breathtaking! I didn't want to leave.


I feel like I always say this, but time passes so quickly! I cannot believe Saturday is St. Patrick's Day. I can't believe Easter is just around the corner, and we are already talking about yard work and pulling our summer clothes out of storage. (We can't put our winter clothes away yet, though, because in Colorado, you just never know when there will be a blizzard in May... I wish I was kidding.)
