I had such a nice weekend that I almost don't even mind that it is Monday! It involved yummy Thai food, pumpkin ales, a fun BBQ with softball friends, a mountain drive at sunset with R, dinner at a brewery, and a long Sunday bike ride; some of my very favorite things! I don't have a Makeover Monday for you today because I neglected my sewing machine this weekend in exchange for enjoying the last warm days outdoors. But I do have for you some fun pictures from our sunset drive into the mountains!

Sometimes it is so liberating to get into the car with no specific destination in mind. We knew we wanted to head West into the mountains to see if the Aspen leaves had started changing yet, and we were not disappointed- a faint golden glow has start to take over the Rockies. Finally, right at sunset, we pulled over near an empty Ranch that we had visited in the beginning of the summer (seen here). We were so excited to see that there were actually a ton of horses eating their dinner, and it pretty much made for the most Colorado-esque backdrop I could ever dream of. I am usually kind of skeptical of horses, but they are really beautiful. I tried to think of a horse song to sing to them to lull them into coming over to say hi, but my rendition of "Oh home on the range" didn't do the trick. R however walks up to the fence and just stands there and immediately a few practically sprint to him. Ahem. I cannot say I wasn't slightly insulted they didn't find my singing voice pleasing.
Since these photos depict what Colorado is to me, I would love to hear what the quintessentially perfect backdrop would be for the place you live! Would it be a sandy beach, a gathering of city buildings, a quaint downtown, a shady grove of trees? If you have a post on your blog that you think really shows the heart of where you live, link it to the comments and I would love to take a peak!
Hope you guys are having a good start to you week!
p.s. Please disregard my bum knee from my bike fall, not the prettiest- eek!
