Self Care

I interrupt your weekly blog reads with a self-reflection. Ladies, mothers, sisters, friends, however busy you get or think you get, you are never too busy to take care of yourself. It isn’t about making more time, it’s about prioritizing your “to do” list the right way.  How many times do we say, “I don’t […]

Girls Hike Too

Me and my best girls took a first time hike to Crested Butte with this awesome crew! We hiked there but flew back in style thanks to Bubba Air. This trip would not be possible without Eleven Experience, Scarp Ridge Lodge, or Julianne Murphy. She definitely knows how to organize some special girl time. Have […]

Smiling Goat Ranch

Did you get a chance to check out the Hey Bale Ball last week? It was a perfect Aspen afternoon, mingling with friends and I got to pet some sweet horses and ponies at Smiling Goat Ranch! I absolutely love what they stand for and who they serve. The healing environment is something I want […]

Pilates or Bust

Let’s talk pilates and shake up my posts a bit. I’ve always been an advocate for exercising and taking care of your body (amongst other things). A whole other post can be written on the food you eat. On that note, if anyone has any suggestions of a service I can order food from, let […]

Aspen Summer Nights

Need I keep going? Some nightlife in Aspen, CO is what I plan to share with you today. Every now and then (or every weekend), give yourself some girl time. Whether you’re married, partnered, complicated, or single, give yourself a break! If you’re from the Aspen area, or maybe you’re new and aren’t sure where […]

In Maine to Play

And we did play! Short, fun trip to Maine for us this past week. JR and I really enjoyed the beaches there. I’ve been to a lot of beaches, but the Maine beach fronts seem more organic and native to the country. Their seafood is amazing. I can’t tell you everything that we did because […]


Fun post! Me and my crew went on a fun bike ride to Woody Creek Tavern. Bike riding, hiking, running, walking, and just being active. These are all a part of Colorado, not just Aspen! You can’t help but be active when you live in the mountains. Bike riding is pretty “up there” in the […]

Shining Stars and Wine Chips

I had a fabulous Day of Rosé, raising money to benefit the Shining Stars Foundation 🌟  Laura Calabrese is truly talented event planner and connector, bringing awesome people together for such a wonderful cause! This foundation helps and supports children with cancer and many other life-threatening illnesses. I was extremely happy to attend this event. […]

Ironbridge Golf Club

Hello all my lovelies out there. I love keeping you updated on everything I’m doing and I promised I would let you know my feelings on any golf course we played on! The Ironbridge Golf Club and Mountain Community was a spot I played on this past week. I’m here to tell you all about […]

Food and Wine

The Food and Wine Classic 2019 was one for the books. We had so much fun and fellowship. That’s what I love about food and wine (let’s be real though…wine)…it brings people together. It’s a universal necessity to eat. How much better can you get with friends, Rosé, and some of the best chefs around? […]
