The Civil Wars

Last night, I got to see the Civil Wars play in Denver. They put on an amazing show. I was gushing like a teenage girl at a Justin Bieber concert. Embarrassing.

As I was looking back through my pictures from the show, I realized they all have this person's giant head in them... Oh well!

I am still feeling a little bit starry-eyed. They were amazing! You can't really tell from the picture (thanks to the giant head), but Joy Williams is eight months pregnant and rocking some high heels! Respect.

Been feeling a little under the weather lately. I am looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend. We have zero plans, and I love it.

Georgie likes to spy on the neighbors...

I can't believe summer is almost here. I am so excited, and it's so hard to be patient. 

Tonight, we're headed out for wine and tapas. Happy weekend! xo.

Happy Mother's Day

I want to wish all the mothers out there a happy Mother's Day! I hope you are getting pampered this weekend :) You deserve it.

To my own Mama and Juli and my Grandmere - you are the most amazing women I've ever known, and I am so thankful to have your strong, nurturing presences in my life. I love you so very much. 

Mother's Day always feels extra special to me because it was the day M and I got engaged three years ago. I can't believe it's been that long!

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Birthday, John!

Today is my brother's birthday. I can't believe he is 22. And he is about to graduate from college in a few days. I'm getting old.

I think this is one of my favorite pictures of us... This pretty much sums up our relationship... hugging / choking each other out while my dad laughs at us.

John, I hope your birthday was amazing! We love you!

America's Pastime

This weekend, we went to Denver to see the Braves play the Rockies...

It felt so good to watch our team play again! And they WON! 

Hope you had a great weekend and a happy Cinco de Mayo! xo.

While I was on my trip to Georgia, M planted this peony for me in our yard, and it is already blooming! I am not one of those people with a green thumb, so I am hoping we can keep this little plant alive for awhile.

This week has been a full one. On Monday night, we went to a bottling party. One of our friends brewed his own beer and then invited us all over to watch and participate in the bottling process. I never realized how much work goes into bottling beer, let alone making it. I was too afraid to touch anything, but M was in charge of capping the bottles. The bottle caps have to be boiled in water and then clamped onto the bottles with this claw-looking device. Intense.

Last night, we got to have dinner with my dad in Denver! He was here for a business trip, and we took him to 16th Street and then to dinner at Appaloosa Grill. It was so wonderful to get to see him, even if it was only for a few hours.

Friday, we are headed back to Denver to watch the Atlanta Braves play the Colorado Rockies. Of course, we'll be rooting for the Braves. We may live in Colorado, but our loyalties have not changed.

Have a lovely week. xo.
