life lately

Good morning friends!

I meant to post this last week, and then things go away from me. However, if you follow me on Instagram (@xo_smash) you probably noticed that our scenery changed a bit over the last week. Mike ended up having a few days off work, so we decided to take advantage of the fact that we were both free and we took a long weekend to Beaver Creek, Colorado.

The scenery was absolutely stunning (and it took all of my self-control not to post 1,000 pictures of the mountains). We went hiking, horseback riding, and I tried white water rafting for the first time. We used Lakota Guides and I definitely recommend them if you're ever out there and looking to raft.

When we got back to the city last week I finally started painting our apartment. You see, most normal people paint their apartment and then move everything in, hang photos, etc. We moved in, hung all of our pictures and then started painting. But, for us it worked. It's been nice to live in the space a while and then decide exactly what to do. Anyway, the stripes I talked about here are now done, and I will be sharing more about the painting process later this week.

And you know, it's not summer without a few trips to Big Gay and some summer sunsets.

Hope your week is off to a good start!
