nearly a year ago jared and i went on our first date. (woah!!)
to celebrate a year of being happy together we headed up to glenwood springs, co for a short weekend getaway. we were only away for 50 hours but it proved to be just enough time to relax, laugh, and enjoy ourselves.
we had originally decided to go to glenwood springs because the train ride from denver to there is supposed to be one of the most beautiful in the country. but, when tickets for the train doubled in a matter of weeks we opted to keep planning a trip out west anyway.
the added bonus being that we were now able to makes stops at our favorite places along the way.
we left town late friday morning after much hemming hawing on both of our sides. the drive west on i-70 is one of my favorites in the country (and i've driven across most of it). the views that you get to experience are absolutely beautiful. i didn't grow up in colorado but whenever i drive through the mountains i feel like i've come home. the kind of home that you find later in life and never want to leave. the mountains have always managed to wrap their big accepting arms so snuggly around me.
we spent the afternoon in downtown glenwood springs meandering in and out of books shops, eating ice cream, and holding hands.
the weekend was full of happiness and love. my favorite way to spend my weekends with him.
celebrate happiness. buy some flowers. bake a cake.
