Let me tell you, it only takes approximately one week of cold rainy or snowy weather to make you long for warmth again. Yesterday provided a gloriously warm and sunny fall day that was much needed and appreciated. It is easy to take the sun for granted in Colorado, as usually even if it is cold, the sun is still shining bright; but not this past week. However, if the weather could stay like it was yesterday forever, I would so be okay with that!

So, here is my obligatory blogger post at the pumpkin patch! It was a madhouse there, as are most pumpkin patches on a beautiful Sunday in mid October I assume. I am still glad we went, but it was missing the treats, like apple cider donuts, that I miss from the East coast. Or maybe that would be at an apple orchard, not a pumpkins patch...hmmm, that would make sense now that I'm thinking about it... There was a dinky little corn maze we wandered through, some farm animals to oggle (including a white miniature pony that looked EXACTLY like unicorn missing its horn), oh yes, and kittens! I am not quite sure what they had to do with anything, but there was a large play cage with two adorable pumpkin-hued kittens with a sign saying they had been adopted, hooray!
I donned a comfy vintage rust colored dress (available in the shop) and a some polka dot tights for the occasion, and realized I didn't even need a jacket after a few minutes. Also, I am not sure these shoes I thrifted last weekend are ever going to leave my feet ever again. They are the perfect orangey-brown that you can pair with pretty much any color. Swoon. This week is going to be super busy for me because I am working my full time schedule in four days instead of five. The reward will be a long weekend with R, my parents, and some awesome family friends spent in a beautiful cabin in Breckenridge! It is also R's birthday weekend and I could not be looking forward to this little getaway any more!
I am also excited to announce that today is my very first post over on the Flock Together style blog. If you would like to know a little bit more about me, or just want to see some pretty Colorado scenery, I would love if you stopped by to say hi!
Hope you're week is off to a great start!
