our Aspen honeymoon!

our Aspen honeymoon!

Two weeks ago, Kurt and I took the first part of our delayed honeymoon in Aspen, Colorado! During our time in colorful Colorado Kurt taught me how to cross-country ski, we enjoyed breath-taking scenery, and ate some delicious meals. It was a wonderful week of unplugging from our normal day-to-day lives. 

In total, we had seven full days in Aspen, Snowmass and Basalt, and if we could have just stayed there forever I think we would have tried! We approached each day with a plan, while also leaving room for flexibility. Overall, I think this approach worked well for us - we were able to participate in local activities while also having time to relax each day. As a result, at the end of our time in Colorado we felt rested and not like we were in need of another vacation! 

One of the things I loved most about the trip was getting to try something new with Kurt. Growing up, Kurt spent a lot of time both downhill and cross-country skiing with his family. But I had never stepped on skis before this week! While I'll admit I wasn't the most confident of students, Kurt's patience in teaching me how to cross-country ski was so wonderful. I'm not sure I'll ever become a regular skier, but at least I can say that I've done it now!

Here's a little video I made highlighting some of what we did and saw during our honeymoon. And below that, some of the favorite photos we took. Enjoy! 

Music is Fleet Foxes, song called Blue Ridge Mountains.
