San Fran Bound

Today Derek & I head to the city by the bay, San Francisco. Growing up in Southern California my entire life, I can honestly say I have never been to the bay area. I think people forget that it's about an 8 hour drive, and going through LA alone can take 2-4 hours depending on the day & time you leave. Derek will be here for the month of November, and I am very excited to spend more than a weekend exploring the city and surrounding areas.
P.S. Since we will be traveling for Halloween, we won't be dressing up. For past years, click here & here.

Pumped Up Kicks & Rummage My Closet

Let the record show that I wore wedges the other night to dinner. 
You guys, this is a big deal. I don't do wedges/heels/lethal weapon spikes. Okay, so that last one went a little to far...but I have seen some dangerous high rises in my day. Plus, I prefer to be flat footed so I'm the perfect height for Derek to kiss my forehead.
Off to see my man again today. So glad October is a 5-week month and we get some extra time with each other! We are spending time with the Smith clan in Park City for a few days for good food, shopping, and fun! 
P.S. My super fashionable & good friend Stephanie is having a closet sale. She has the most killer shoe collection I have ever seen, an eye for vintage clothes, and her 16 month old dresses better then some grownups I know. Even designer and name brand items on sale for great prices. Check her out here & buy something! I'm a happy customer & those baby Moccasins are mine. Just don't tell Derek.

Fall to-do List

Hoping to cross these off the list by Thanksgiving. My winter to-do list is already dancing in my head to the tune of "jingle bell rock". The "bers" are always my favorite months.

The Mile High City

 Besides Denver deciding to have a cold snap & a dusting of snow Friday morning, the city proved itself well to me. The colorful changing trees, charming lower downtown, and the cool crisp air were just some of my favorite things. My favorite, most of all, was getting a big hug and kiss from my handsome husband. We spent a lot of time just talking, walking, and snuggling, which is exactly what Derek needed after a demanding month in D.C. Between walks hand-in-hand, we ate at local hot spots, window shopped, and enjoyed just a few of the beautiful parks in the area. It was a very laid back weekend, but I don't think either of us would've changed it.

A Month Too Long

Today,  I have my bags packed and am jumping on a flight to Denver. It's been over a month since I've seen Derek, and I am literally too excited for words. Our weekend in the mountains will be filled with walks, talks, eats, snuggles, warm sweaters & hot chocolate runs. 
I can't wait to see the changing leaves and actually feel cold. But I'm even more excited for a big bear hug from my handsome mister.
