He Asked....And I Said YES!

It was a warm Sunday, the mountains had just been dumped with we decided to go snow shoeing.
We had to hike 3 mile just to get to the trail head (b/c the roads were closed due to the snow.)
The sun was shining and the air was crisp, it couldn't have been a nicer day!
But it was hard work trudging through all that deep snow. I needed to stop and refuel multiple times.
After about 5 miles of hiking we hit a ridge, we could see where we were and we were about 2 miles East of where we needed to be. knowing that the summit was still about 4-5 mile off and that I was tired we decided to eat lunch. As we looked out we were surrounded by snow covered mountains and sunshine. That is when he did it...he said some sweet loving words, got down on one knee (in his snow shoes) and asked me. I smiled said yes and kissed him.
I smiled the whole way down the mountain (The 5 mile hike back seem so much easier for some reason)
We had to stop frequently so I could un-glove my hand to look at and admire my ring once more!

The white clear stone is called apatite, and the aqua colored stone is called chalcedony the two stones are on recycled sterling silver. I love the unique artsy feel (D did have a little help picking it out =)

We both ate the mango Salmon mmmm......
Then we went to Boulder for drinks and some entertainment.
Saturday we went to A-Basin for our first ski day of the year.

The snow on my butt shows that I am still a little rusty.

Snow Shoeing in Rocky MTN National Park

Me, D, Roxann (D's sis), Mark (D's bro-in-law)

Last Saturday morning we all piled in the car to enjoy the fresh snow and CO sun!

We hiked past 3 frozen lakes.

By the time we got to the 3rd the air was chilly and the wind was blowing!
We had a lot of fun and I got to break in my new snow shoes!

Have you been playing in the snow yet?

Turning a book in to a banner

I helped my friend Amy do a little basement clean up a few weeks ago. There was a lot that we gave a way to Goodwill, but there was a lot that had to stay due to sentimental value. I took one of those very items that was destined to go back in to a box under the stairs and turned it in to something she and her family could use each Christmas.

The book is called "Christmas is a time for Giving" It is full of adorable color and b/w pictures. So with her permission I revamped it! I cant wait to give it to her next week! It will go great on hanging from their mantle.
I was easy to do with a little fabric, decoupage and my sewing machine.
