The other day I was beyond exhausted. You see, I have been working on a new concept for my blog. It may be that I have figured out how to make money off of my blog without losing my quality (details soon to come).

I went upstairs to fold laundry on my bed and found myself dreaming about launching into space on a rocket. Somehow between folding the boxers and pairing the infinitesimal single socks together I must have drifted off to be awoken by my phone vibrating into my drool. Dazed and confused I looked at my phone to find a golden photograph from Wade of the place where we were married.

Our thirteenth anniversary was coming up and we had agreed that gifts were not happening. Not this year anyway. As I read the words of love on the text it registered that this was the best gift I could ever receive. The gift of true love that has surfed many a challenging wave.

Favorite Mountain Biking Trail in Aspen:

Yesterday we set off for a mountain bike ride that took my breath away, The Tom Blake Trail in Snowmass. It was almost as if somebody had lined the trails with red and gold leaves for our benefit and like one might follow a trail of rose petals to a bed lined with silken sheets, we followed the Aspen leaves to our own Nirvana.

Ok, maybe I’m being a bit poetic. The reality? In the beginning, Baddy was laughing on how completely unrelaxing it was for him to be my personal sherpa/butler/bike tech as he raised and lowered my seat, fixed my helmet askew on my head and rearranged my backpack for it to fit better. But as we rode we gelled together through forests with golden tree canopies.

Taking a snack break I told him that I felt as if I were in a movie, sitting next to my husband, a gorgeous, sweet hunk of a man, in Colorado on a ski trail lined in shimmering gold.

It was an twenty-four Karat Gold day.

Happy Anniversary to all of you who are celebrating your love this month. May it be lined in gold!!!

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
