On this day 6 years ago, we visited Colorado for a long weekend getaway. We met up with several friends to ski and adventure...on our way back to Denver from Breckenridge, I distinctly remember us looking around at the mountains and saying, “We should live here...why don’t we live here?” And the other said, “I don’t know 🤷🏼♀️...but we def should.” It was in that EXACT moment that our dreaming evolved into vision crafting, manifesting and CREATING our lives. Prior to that I felt like a lot of decisions in my life were merely the default because it was COMFORTABLE. But in that moment, looking to the mountains for inspiration and courage, I felt home. And that feeling lit a fire in our souls to make the mountains our home! ... And 17 months later we became Coloradans. 🌄 We never intended to stay in Denver, we KNEW we wanted to be IN the mountains in a smaller town. But where? How? When? We didn’t know. We just had to take the leap, trust and go with the flow of life. Looking back on this picture I am reminded of how scared I used to be; of EVERYTHING! I was really good at playing the “what if” game and it literally drove me completely mad. But as soon as we made that move to Colorado, I started to learn to trust the universe, God, spirit - whatever you want to call it. And my life has been on an upward trajectory ever since...and not just because we live at 10,200 ft. 🤣😉 Trust. It’s very scary but COMPLETELY liberating. Ironic that my word for 2018 is also trust. And now all I can do is wonder what other magic the universe has in store for us...💫 Take the leap my friends. Free fall into the freedom and magic of the unknown. It’s the BEST thing you will ever do for yourself! 🏔❤️
1 year ago yesterday we closed on this house that has truly become our HOME! It is the most cozy, spacious, & beautiful space and I have not for one single day taken this house for granted. We have shared this space with our families (most of them anyway) & friends and already made some amazing memories here! 💕 Sadly Jackie only made it to 6 months of the 1 year we have spent here but I know she’s in a better place and who knows what new friends may join us in the future! 🐶? 👶🏼? No, I am not pregnant...but it is kind of exciting to imagine how life may unfold inside these walls in the next few years. 🤗 Don’t settle for less friends...go find your dream home (city and house) and make it YOURS! This was one of the best decisions of our lives and I’ve never looked back once! 🏡❤️
My 27th year on Earth wasn’t the year I anticipated but I am a firm believer that things have happened in my life to make room for further successes.
Just because I didn’t do things I set out to do doesn’t mean that it was a bad year. In trying to work towards goals, I found new ones that I didn’t know I wanted to achieve.
Relentlessly pursuing passions became my mission after a health scare last Spring. Since then, I have sought inspiration on how to live life with purpose.
Whether it’s people competing in ultra marathons or dogs powerful enough to pull humans, I have enjoyed the wonderful souls who have inspired me to live life. (I’m headed out to enjoy the day and make the most of my birthday!!! I hope everyone has a great St. Patrick’s Day ☘️🍀)

DEEEE-nied!!! So there's this crack I'm trying to climb down in BV. Three days of effort, and the first three moves keep finding ways to spit my unworthy carcass back to the ground. So far I have only succeeded in paying for my precocity in blood.
I am hereby opening the door for a partner to join me. Misery loves company, they say.
If you like climbing hard cracks, carrying crashpads over yucca and sage hill and dale, karate chopping for thin hands with less than ideal feet, and getting way off the ground in the middle of nowhere, then please do hit me up.
I like getting the #firstascent as much as anyone, but I feel this #project could benefit from some combined effort and inspiration. If you get it first, then I get another perspective on how what's baffling me can be done. Win win.
Bonus points if you can make it two pads.
The road. The mountains. This small town on a hill. My heart finds home in many places, but feeling especially thankful today for this one and the people who make it warm. 💛 Thanks, too, to the folks who drove up the mountain these last few weekends to play and rest with me - you make me feel so loved @bgolden4him @kelseycharlenecook @annieroro18 @1lisaonlife #leadvilleliving#allthewarmfeelings#home#gratitude
So happy to be at home resting my knee another day before back to work tomorrow... For now, sipping on hot coffee, watching the snow fall, Stapleton wailing in the background and the fire on. This is pure bliss. ☕️🔥🎸
Didn't know that ski cooper has specific uphill routes,Trails End on the front side and Ambush on the back. Patrol very nicely pointed out the error in my ways. Still Cooper still has a very generous uphill compared to alot of other areas
