Colorado in the fall, it doesn’t get much better! A few weeks ago I went up to Guanella Pass to check out all the colors, and it didn’t disappoint. From the town of Grant along U.S. Hwy. 285, head north on Guanella Pass Road to the town of Georgetown. The paved road leads you over 11,669-foot Guanella Pass with its stunning views of Mount Evans and Mount Bierstadt. Once you’ve soaked in all the scenery, stop off for a bite to eat and some local shopping in downtown Georgetown.

Ready to go? Keep in mind Colorado leaves turn at different times depending on elevation and the length of daylight, so be sure to check the Smoky Mountains website for interactive maps showing the best spots. Now lace up your hiking shoes and get ready to see some of the most beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains.

Let me know in the comments where y’all are headed or have already been!

I spent the weekend in Vail a few weeks ago, and was so struck by how beautiful it is in the summer! I had only ever been in the winter for skiing, but really shouldn’t have been surprised by how amazing it is in the summer. Lionshead District and Vail Village were packed with great restaurants and shopping. All the villages were impeccably kept, and brimming with beautiful flowers & views reminiscent of a quaint European ski town. The Vail Farmer’s Market was also incredible, hands down the best Farmer’s Market I’ve been to.

Check out this full travel guide by Marie Claire that’s chock full of the best restaurants, shops, where to stay and what to do!

Slowly, but surely, it’s starting to feel like summer is upon us in the Centennial State. Thankfully, right in time for Memorial Day weekend! What fun trips do you have in the works this summer?

I’m starting to map out mine, which had me searching for functional and stylish travel bags. I came across Boarding Pass NYC, and this Cherry Blossom Lifestyle Carryall had my name written all over it! Not only does the new line come in three beautiful shades, but it’s entirely waterproof and stain resistant. Perfect bag for the gym, as a carry on, or an overnight weekend adventure.

They have quite the variety of travel accessories (tempted to hit buy on the Charcoal Voyager Waxed Weekender), and it’s definitely worth perusing all their offerings. With Father’s Day right around the corner, one of their goods might strike your fancy as a great gift for your on-the-go dad.

Hi friends, happy Friday! Hope you all have some fun weekend plans in the works. It’s supposed to be in the 70s here in Denver (finally!) so I’m looking forward to soaking that up.

I was going through my hard drive the other day, and came across these Airstream photos. My dear friend Koko owned it when she lived in Asheville and was studying at Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts. I was living in Nashville at the time, so I would frequently go and visit her. She now lives in Grand Junction, so luckily, we’re still able to see each other often. The Western Slope is absolutely stunning! I’ll share some photos the next time I’m there.

I’ve recently become quite smitten with yellow (some say it’s the new millennial pink, ha!), but whenever I see this shade, I’m just drawn to it. That yellow on the seat cushions is so beautiful against the creamy white interior. And her cat Slim compliments it all pretty well, too 😉 She has since sold this beauty mobile, but I hear it’s traveling along the Oregon Coast which seems fitting.

Ah, what an adventure.

Have a great weekend!
