i spent friday night watching re-runs and baking cookies, waiting for jordan to get back from a job interview in san francisco. it sounds lame, but after a week with enough stress to make my 24 year old head sprout a few grays, (i'm exaggerating) you are actually grateful to having nothing to do but put together a clothes rack from ikea and lay in bed with your best girlfriend, chatting about your favorite instagrammers.
saturday, my family was in town and so we took them up to sundance to ride the chairlift. i mean, i knew it was going to be pretty - but i was honestly unprepared for the total overhaul on my senses. the air was this perfect temperature with just enough bite in it to make you occasionally shiver, and the colors had intensified a hundred fold since our last trip up, a week ago. buttery yellows and warm autumn reds... i feel like fall was keeping all of this gold it her pocket, and last week she decided to sprinkle it all over sundance. we kept looking at each other and laughing, because it was hard to believe. "is this real life?" was the quote of the day.
we spent the rest of our evening with friends at a corn maze (in true kayla fashion, i refused to go into the haunted house & waited outside while everyone else did it. i don't know why i hate scary things, but i despise. anything. scary.)
overall, this day was a breath of freaking fresh air & i am so grateful for the beautiful mountains in our backyard. it dawned on me, i think for the first time ever, that living in a big city might make me miss days like these - so i'm going soak them up while i can!
