Winter Catch-up

We are a few months into Winter and I'm trying to enjoy the pretty snow and chilly temperatures. Here's a bit of a recap!
With Pierre at a Christmas shop in Estes Park. The tree behind me was all tropical themed.

Brent at the Dancing Pines distillery. They have wonderful spirits!

Brent at the Stanley hotel.

I made a fun winter sweater from a free vintage Jack Frost pattern (http://www.freevintageknitting.com/free-sweater-pattern/jackfrost53/scandinavian-sweater-pattern-5316). I had to make a good amount of changes and also added the snowflake pattern on the sleeves. The yarn is Zitron Trekking XXL Tweed and it was a dream to knit with.

At the gorgeous and historic Brown Palace hotel for A holiday party. 

Incredible chandelier from below. We stayed the night there and had a wonderful time.

Brent in the lobby, looking handsome.

I've been trying to get out more this winter and have been taking hikes! This was a particularly sunny and beautiful day at a path near Lyons.

The glare from the lights is terrible here but look at our holiday sweaters! We met my parents in Santa Fe around Xmas time.

Here we are at a brewery and pizza place. My sweater is so warm!

After Santa Fe, Brent and I went on to Taos for a few nights where we stayed at the El Monte Sagrado. This was our darling casita, complete with a front and back fenced-in yard for Pierre.

Inside was lovely too and had a cozy fireplace.

The Anaconda room was so beautiful.

The square in Taos. It was snowing!

Gorgeous La Finda hotel

Part of the pool area at our hotel. We went there at least once a day!

And finally, happy New Year! We had a really fun evening with friends. So far, 2016 has been pretty good. 

You may have noticed that our darling little CB is absent from these photos. He passed away back in October and we have just been devastated. I am personally still processing everything but he is missed and will always be in our hearts.
