Beautiful Bride in Telluride

OH Boonie! You were a beautiful bride.....
This weekend one of my greatest friends from high school got married.

Not only did she choose the most beautiful place, but also a charming husband. Carl is great and that is importnat because Boonie is one of the greatest people I know.
Their wedding was a lot of fun, and it was great to see some friends from High School that I have not seen in a long time. Sarah flew in from New York, and I miss her, so this was a good time.

Boonie and Carls reception and ceremony was so romantic and fun.. The food was delicious. Thank you Boonie and Carl for letting me share this day with you.

They got married in Telluride Colorado. It is so beautiful here. The mountains surround this cool little town, with lots of fun shops and nice people.

Lyle was able to come with me, and it was really good to spend time with him. We did some hiking, and shopping and off roading in his jeep, which of course he loved.

Really funny Story....
Ok, so there is this street in Telluride where all the lost and found stuff and other free items are collected. This includes couches, fridges, and other random things that people are wanting to get rid of... Lyle and I were looking at some of the old bikes that had been dumped here, when I came across this really nice Backpack sitting on the couch...

In my mind I thought, "huh, why would anyone give this away for free". So I walked over to the couch and grabbed it to take a look.... At my suprise, a bumb jumped out from under the couch pillows and screamed, "thats my baag...." I too screamed, and than almost peed my pants. It was so funny.... I did not see a bump on the couch because he was so covered up.... The even funnier thing about this is that the bumb was wearing a cool hat that Lyle went to grab, but before he did, noticed hair and a face hiding.... So walked away, and this is when I went in for the steal.... WOW!!!

The Last Lecture

It is easy to forget how quickly our lives go by, or how instantly it can be over.

I thought that this was a really great thing to think about.

It reminded me that everyday I need to be better and live like it might be my last.

Take time to listen to it.

My Dazling Weekly Date

I love the outdoors... it is EPIC right now.

Lyle is gone a lot... and its not usually that difficult until fall rolls around, and I instantly crave being outside. I love it, it is so beautiful right now because the wild flowers are still thriving, but the leaves are changing as well. There are so many colors, it was overwhleming to my camera.. I love it when a bright red tree is surrounded by green pines.

The smells are so potent because of the moisture in the air... I absolutley love the smell of pine trees and sage brush.

So, anyway, I have started a weekly date in the mountains with my boy "bosko"... He is very charming and fun. . . I was driving him crazy because I kept stopping to take pictures and he just wants to hike to the lake that he knows is at the top of the mountain.

You may think that it's wierd that I call my dog charming... but he really is. I mean... just look at how handsome he is for one!but he also takes good care of me, and makes me feel important and loved .. When we hike, he is always ahead of me, but he always turns around to make sure that I am okay. When people are coming down the trail with dogs, he always comes and stands next to me to make sure that I am safe, and really wants to take care of me.

I bet people think I am a crazy dog woman- We play hide and seek, me and Bosko- and he makes me laugh so hard... The game goes something like this.....

I hide while he is ahead of me on the trail...

He comes back to find that I am missing

So he searches

and searches

I jump out and scare him

he runs

I chase him

of course he gets ahead of me....

and hides

as I aproach his hiding place he jumps out


and than he runs...

and I laugh, out loud

the look on his face is so funny

he is so excited

I chase him

and it starts all over.

He is so funny because he lays in the streams to cool down and shakes off on me, like he is marking his territory!

It wears me out. Being out with this dog.

But he enjoys being outside with me...

and I enjoy his company.
