Instagram love

I heart Instagram.
I know I'm a bit late to the game, 
but Z gave me an iPhone
for Valentine's Day,
 and besides asking Siri
silly questions, 
the Instagram app has quickly become
my favorite thing!

Here are a few I snapped
during this morning's walk
in the fresh snow.

Winter Hiking

It was a fabulously sunny day here, 
so I was determined to get outside.
I'm pretty sure everyone else in Boulder 
had the same idea...
people were everywhere, and the trails were packed.

I decided on a trail without too much
elevation gain since I was expecting a little 
mud & slush.

Turns out that was a good idea! 
There was a ton of mud & slush, 
making it much more challenging,
but the views & fresh air were worth it.

An Artsy Saturday

I headed up to Longmont today
for some lunch & pottery painting with a friend.

I'd never been to a pottery painting
place before, and it was lots of fun 
picking out the right piece, 
coming up with design, painting, 
and visiting.

Here's my piece while being painted
(with tape on it).

Here's what it looked like once i removed the tape.
Can't wait to see it glazed & fired.

After we finished painted our painting, 
we found this public art in downtown Longmont.
I loved it so much I made 
mac and cheese for supper :)

What a lovely Saturday!

It's a funny sort of thing

How the same day I took the pic
from the previous post it started snowing....
and 2 days later we ended up with over 22 inches.

A view of Boulder

I ran some out-of-town
errands this morning, 
and this is the view that
welcomed me back to Boulder.

Lucky me :)
