unplugged & maroon bells

Truth be told, I’ve been in a little rut lately. I have so many dreams and ideas and so little inspiration or ideas on where to start to make them all happen. It’s just one of those seasons in life – one where you know big, amazing, incredible, beautiful things are ahead… you’re just left to navigate through the “right now” before you can get there. And for me, “right now” currently includes binge-watching Netflix, which is not necessarily conducive to dreamin’ big & feeling inspired.

In my defense, though: I’m smack in the middle of Parenthood, which is probably THE BEST show I’ve ever watched and I’m not about to stop until I’m done, soooo I think my big ideas can wait just a bit longer. What’s a few more days, right? 🙂

This last weekend I completely unplugged. We took a trip out to the western slope to visit the in-laws and I didn’t even look at my phone. I brought my computer, but didn’t open it. I DIDN’T WATCH NETFLIX.

Most importantly, I didn’t even miss any of it.

I think unplugging and being all there, wherever you are, is such an important part of enjoying r i g h t  n o w. I’m always looking ahead, but last weekend I was exactly where I was meant to be. Right here. Right now. That’s it.

Because I wasn’t glued to my phone, I was able to wholeheartedly experience the incredible beauty that is autumn in Colorado. We spent Saturday in Maroon Bells, near Aspen, and it truly was the most incredible site. The aspens are the most beautiful shades of golden yellow and orange, and every so often, the breeze would pick up and the leaves would fall all around us. It was like a dream.

It was a strange and lovely day. 🙂

Enjoy a few of my favorites from the weekend, all taken by my handsome husband, Dave. I didn’t even touch the camera!
