seattle quick trip.

I surprised David with a very brief trip up to Seattle for his birthday. It was classically raining almost the whole time, but it cleared just in time for us to share a mini bottle of champagne at one of our favorite places, Kerry Park. I do really love that city. <3

gaper day 2012

It's back! The annual celebration of neon, eighties, mullets, scrunchies, and one-piece ski outfits. For those who don't know what a "gaper" is, see last year's post. It was a bit cloudy this year, so for once I was thankful to be wearing a horribly ventilated jumpsuit. We spent the day cruising the slushy mountain and showing off our sweet moves. Enjoy the photos!

everyday beauty

The beauty of this place never ceases to amaze me. Sometimes I seem to overlook the fact that I live in one of the most stunning places in the world. Like when I wake up, look out my bedroom window and grumble about the rain clouds pouring over the mountains, but there are other moments...ahhh, those other moments...when I truly can't believe how gorgeous it is here. This morning I was on an early morning drive, reflecting over the festivities of the weekend, when I came across a herd of elk. This was about five minutes out of town, and of course the herd was so big I had to stop right in my tracks. Getting any closer would disturb them, and I know that winter is hard for the animals. So I stopped and watched. The sun was coming up over Sleeping Indian, and it was probably one of the most amazing sights I'd ever seen. If there's one thing I've learned from photography, it's to look at everything with the idea of beauty. There truly is beauty all around. City streets, forests, lakes, mountains, sidewalks, neighborhoods, everywhere. Enjoy these shots of what I saw this morning. In my mind, it's hard to really duplicate what I'm seeing and feeling, but hopefully I brought that out a little bit in these images. I couldn't think of anywhere else I'd want to be at that moment.

mountain fest

I love spring on the hill in Jackson Hole. There's live music every weekend, the sun is shining, the slopes are slushy and soft, and people are living up the last few weeks of winter. Yesterday, G Love and Special Sauce played a big concert out in the parking lot. It was 60 degrees, and I had the best time cruising around the hill with my friends and then hanging out at the concert. This warm weather has me super excited for summer, and we still have a whole week of snowboarding left! More spring festivities to come...Happy Gaper Day!
