Lately...

As I'm sitting here drinking my hot tea, trying to get my sore throat to go away, I decided it was time to write again. I actually have a few things to write about. I had wanted to blog earlier in the week,  but was waiting for some of the pictures I wanted to post to get edited. So....this may be a long one...

Last Friday night was the last night with my brother before he and Dad left for California. He stopped by my apartment to give hugs and say bye. I won't be seeing him or Dad till Thanksgiving....weird! I love my little brother and am so excited to see what the Lord does in his life in this new season. It's been 6 days since he left and I already miss him so much. I do have to say though, that I did not cry when I said goodbye...I stayed strong...even though I didn't want to, haha. Here are a couple pictures of the family!

On Saturday, the 25th, a group of friends decided to look at all the pretty Autumn colors. We drove up into the mountains to some of the most beautiful colors...the yellows, reds, and oranges...simply breathtaking. First we stopped off at The Donut Mill in Woodland Park and ate breakfast with all our friends. The kids LOVED the donuts...and the adults enjoyed them too ;) As we drove up the mountains, I took some pictures...



This is why I will never move away from Colorado...unless it's further east or over seas :)



We ended up in a small town called Cripple Creek. Now you see, Cripple Creek is known for the casino's and gambling, so all this time I thought Cripple Creek was like the Vegas of Colorado. Little did I know that it was one of the cutest towns I have ever seen. It's an old historic town and all the buildings definitely prove it. I really wish I had taken pictures of the town! We went to the park and all the kids got to run around and eat lunch. The boys threw around and hit a tennis ball, and all the ladies enjoyed each other's company, all while keeping their eyes on all their sweet children, or as my friend Kacy calls them, treasures! Some friends had to leave early, but before they did, we took a group picture....

Love all of these friends! It was such a fun day and I can't wait for the weather to start changing so I can wear thick sweaters and boots :)

Lets see...what else has been going on....I've been completely addicted to watching documentaries lately. I've watched one on young girls who are sold into prostitution in New York, Solitary Confinement at Colorado State Penitentiary, one on the catholic church and a minister who abused children, Meth and the effects is has on the body, brain, and society, and now I am currently watching one about the editor and creative director for Vogue. All of them have been so very interesting! 
I'm having a hard time with not having a really close girlfriend or a best friend. This has been on my mind the past couple weeks. Pretty much since one of my good friends reconnected with her best friend and has kinda forgotten plans we had. I'm figuring out why I never had close girlfriends all throughout life and why I've always had close guy friends. 
I also am sick....so it's been a sucky week. Oh well....hopefully all the med's I've been taking kick in and I can get better. Hope you all are blessed today! xoxo
