River Walk

It's safe to say summer layering is my favorite. Or maybe just layering in general. I love the comfort of lots of layers, and also how different layers can change the whole look of an outfit (a great way for switching up beloved outfits).

The other day we had a chilly morning, so I bundled up a bit and headed down to the river. I spent some time just enjoying the sound of the rushing water, and sipping my iced. It really was a nice few minutes, and most certainly the calm before the storm that was about to hit.

This past week I spent a few days in Denver, CO with my dad's side of the family. I don't really want to go into too much detail, but I have a family member in the hospital and had a sudden death in the family. Your kind thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

This week I'm looking forward to spending time in Glenwood Springs (CO). Glenwood is a beautiful town, and has the loveliest downtown area. They also have quite a few "famous landmark" spots that I'm hoping to visit, which include a natural hot springs pool (I probably will wait to go to this until Scott comes to visit), the grave site of Doc Holiday (although he have said that his body more than likely has slid down the mountain side in the past hundred or so years since his death), and a grand hotel where they claim that the first teddy bear was made for Teddy Roosevelt.

I'm also going to spend some time in my favorite coffee shop in Glenwood, Sacred Grounds, and hopefully working on some letters and thank you cards while I'm here. I can already see a large iced coffee and an amazing bran muffin in my near future.

By the way, I still can't get over the beauty of this area. It's absolutely breathtaking!

What are you up to today? Have you ever visited Glenwood Springs before?
