More than all of the fun things we did though, it was so nice to spend quality time with someone we love so much.
Sometimes I feel a little lost in the world. Like, who am I? What am I doing here? Does any of it really matter? And then I get to spend a weekend re-connecting with my grandma and am reminded where and who I come from. I tend to make life way more complicated than it needs to be and I realize that some things are just really simple.
I have love and I am loved. And there’s nothing more important than that.
So thanks, Grandma, for reminding me of this simple truth this weekend. Love you!
We spent Saturday morning stand up paddle boarding on Horsetooth lake, something that we had tried before in Hawaii. It was gorgeous, super peaceful and fun, but I must admit that I preferred SUP in the ocean. It’s much more of a challenge, you’re able to go at a seemingly faster pace and it is a LEGIT full body work out – OUCH! I was a little disappointed that only my upper back was sore on Sunday from SUPing on the lake.
Still, it was a wonderful morning. We even got Natty out on a board…until Cory tried to stand up and she jumped ship.
Saturday afternoon met our friends, Rachel & George at their campsite for some grilling before we headed out on George’s boat. We hadn’t been out on the lake all summer and we really missed it! There is nothing quite like the breeze you feel when you’re on a boat out on the water.
Sunday we drove to the Highlands in Denver and met Griffin and his sister, Chelsea for a long, mimosa filled brunch at this awesome restaurant called Root Down. The food and drinks were yummy, the atmosphere had a certain buzz about it and the company could not be beat, of course.
Griffin and I met while working together as tellers at a credit union in 2006, and the rest is history. I was so happy he and his sis (a fellow Coloradoan) were able to squeeze in brunch with us while Griffin was in town.
Overall, a wonderful and full weekend…but next weekend, I think I’ll be taking it easy. : )
This is one of our favorite Fort Collins digs, by far.
