Yellow leaves, blues skies, crisp clean air

Just spent the loveliest weekend with my Sweet William in Vail.  People ask me what is there to do in Vail when it isn't snowing...  nothing... everything... whatever thing you want...  

 We spent a little time outdoors!    Here are some pictures of the beauty of Autumn in Colorado.   Hope you enjoy these pics as much as I enjoyed taking them! 
  


 This photo is looking down on some Aspen Trees from inside a Gondola.  We rode it to the top of the Mountain.  The views were spectacular!  


Shot looking behind us.  Because I was am terrified of heights, SW took the picture.  I just have to keep my eyes forward, not looking up, down or all around!  I do it afraid, because I love him so!  He does so many things that I like to do, even if he doesn't like to.  



Love the contrast.  




At the top of Vail Mountain we could see this beautiful valley and Mount of the Holy Cross in the background.   Simply breathtaking.    



We hiked down.  3 1/2 miles on an intermediate trail.  It was rough, I won't lie.  We're not avid hikers so it took over two hours to get down to the bottom of the trail.  It may have had something to do with my picture taking - or picture taking was just an excuse to "catch my breath"



Just one more, okay 5 more, pictures I want to share!   Have a beautiful Fall dear friends.

Catching up!

 Its been so long since I've played with my blog that I've forgotten how to add new pictures!  LOL!  Seriously.  I figured out how to repost old pics so I chose these.  I hope you like them.  This banner was from a Fall Swap I participated in a few years ago.  It was so much fun I want to do it again!


  It's almost fall, my favorite time of year.  It's a time of change and boy I'm feeling the need for change.   In just a few days my Sweet William and I will be making this trip to Vail again.  I hope the trees will be as vibrant.   I look so forward to it and this year I was able to talk him in to adding another day to our little get away!
(We go for his annual conference/training - I get to R E L A X)
Adding another day gives him 2 days to relax as well.  I plan on catching up on some reading, and probably some zzzz's while he's in training. 


Time goes so fast.  So much has happened in my little corner of the world.   I posted just a few posts back about changes in our family.  Some of those were temporary - my daughter is reunited with her kiddos and they are living happily - not here!  Just Kidding!  I love them dearly, but it's a very trying time to live with your adult children and their children.   Other changes became permanent, and I now can say I have 6 girls, not just 4.   How could I be so blessed!  

There is a big change I am ready for, I am praying about, I'm trying to make a way for...

I really want to quit my job (my steady paycheck & benefit job) and work my booth, make my crafts, blog my blog, do ministry work, and love on my family.   Not that I don't do all of these things already, I just want to do them better.  Without the nag of having to leave my home to go to work, doing something I don't want to do while leaving the things I want to do undone.  Make sense?   Have any of you done this?  Made a change so you can live your passion?   Any words of wisdom?  I'd love to hear it.
