Ways to Prepare for Winter Ski Season

Winter has hit, and it’s that time in Aspen when we start preparing for the next 6 months. How many of you have been awaiting this season like I have? I would love to help prepare those of you who may not have much experience, or maybe, you’re ready to be organized and on top […]

My Top 5 Luxurious Golf Resorts

With all of the different “bests” written about, I wanted to share some of the best golf courses out there that have the BEST comfort stations!  There are all kinds of ratings about how well and challenging the courses actually are, but how often are they rated on their extras? Let’s get started… 1. Kohanaiki […]

The Golf Feels

This summer, I have been committed to the sport of golf. If you read my blogs and follow me on my social media, it wouldn’t be any surprise to you 🙂 I have been trying to perfect my swing, my golfing skills, and invest in some solid playing time. I cannot get enough of it!  […]

Here Lately

My adventures this past week include one of my favorite pastimes with some of my favorite people. Such a relaxing, concentrated sport…the sport of golf. I’m here to rate just two of the many great golf courses I’ve been to. California has so much to offer in all its magnificence, and I love to talk […]

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 […]
