Cabin Weekend: The Ultimate Slow Moment of Summer

You know, we take this little weekend trip to the cabin every summer now and though most of what we do is routine — arrive by 3, beer in hand by 3:30, puzzle, dinner on the grill, breakfast on the front porch, reading on the side porch, walk down to the river, nap, puzzle, listen to the Rockies game, repeat — the small details change from year to year, so that I can remember and love each trip individually.

This year, we had the most perfect sunshiny warm weather — though those mornings on the porch were still crisp in the most refreshing way — we made tacos (because: Taco Summer!), ate peach galette, took a drive where sun-drenched valley spilled into sun-drenched valley spilled into sun-drenched valley, read on a bench that overlooked the stream, saw the most hummingbirds ever, drank kombucha, learned to play Yahtzee, put together an 80’s-themed puzzle, ate yogurt bowls by Joey’s request (!!!) and as always, came home feeling relaxed and recharged.







Scenes from the Weekend


So much to say about this weekend!  Mostly, I wanna tell you I-70 was our second home, which means mountain time to the max — getting to breathe in that fresh crisp air, watching Chad dominate the Tough Mudder, being serenaded by Amos Lee at Red Rocks — and it was so darn refreshing.

But also: French toast with miso-date butter (OMG!), a new backyard umbrella, BABY BUTTERNUT SQUASH (my heart can’t handle it!!!) and guys, we totally watched Game of Thrones when we got home from last night’s concert.  But the Colorado Symphony Orchestra (who backed Amos) played the theme song to end the concert and it had us so pumped up that we simply couldn’t NOT watch, right??

What a good, good, good weekend ♥
