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.
