Weekend Diary: Inside Aspen

I’m waking up with a case of the Monday blues. Aspen stole my heart this weekend and I’m pretty sure it’s still staying cozy in a chairlift somewhere. TAKE ME BACK.

The city turned into a winter wonderland. A foot of snow blanketed the streets and slopes Sunday morning, creating a backdrop so beautiful I wanted to buy a dozen winter coats and move in forever.

This marked my first [ever!] trip to Aspen. My family did it girls style — with sisters, cousins and aunts. We spotted the X Games from our window, while pretending we were IN the X Games on the mountain. I even hopped on skis for the first time since middle school, channeling my inner-Lindsay Vonn while my big sis cheered me on. I was proud of myself, ‘pizza-slice’ maneuvers and all.

This weekend reminded me [yet again] of how big our world is. It’s important we see it, appreciate it, and indulge in all of its beauty.






How majestic is the leaping horse in the far right of this photo?! Pure bliss.
