Day Tripper

I haven't blogged in ages, but definitely DO check in on all my favorite bloggers.  You keep me going....helping me remember that there is a whole world out there of creative people, writers, designers, crazies just like me,....I love you all and thank you for your inspiration!!!!
We took a trip to the mountains this weekend to see the aspens turn (something all Coloradans do just becuz....). but by the time we got to Conifer, my youngest had a 102.5 fever.  How does this happen ONLY on days we are leaving for a trip????  All I can say is that it must be innate.   Bless her heart, she was not giving in and asking us to go home though....she took some pain medicine and put on a happy face so she wouldn't miss a thing!
The aspen trees were gorgeous!  They appeared to be ablaze with fire until you got right up to them.
Then, when you stood next to them, their tiny, heart-shaped leaves shook like little sparkly jewels in the wind, giving them their nickname "Quakies". 
Luckily, kids are resilient and we ended up having a wonderful day even with her feeling "under the weather".  She didn't miss one drop of God's sunshine, rain, lightening, wind, and even snow! that was provided for today's viewing pleasure!

If you've never seen Colorado's "turning of the aspens", you must set aside time to experience it.  It's something you'll never forget...... 
Depending on the end-of-summer weather, the best times to go are September 15 though October 6 or so.  You really must......

OH SUE! It is SO NICE TO SEE YOU and I just thought of you the other day. I still have that fabulous book you sent me and it is beautifully displayed on my vintage sofa table. It looks so gorgeous sitting there, and your kindness is always remembered. Your trip looks as if it was a memorable time and what vibrant colors. We are experiencing "Indian Summer" to the max here; 80 degrees tomorrow!!!! So no color yet.

Thank you for your visit and to come here to see that fabulous header-----oh my! Do you make that in turquoise/aqua??????
