Dog Sledding Winter Adventure

Hello All,

So sorry I have been away for the month but January and me took a little while to get back in the swing of things.

My holidays and Christmas vacation got me thinking about life as usual and what I want, what makes me the most happy. 

Travel is definitely one of my most loved passions. Over the holidays we went on an adventure that has been on my bucket list for a long time and I have to say scratching it off my list was just as satisfying as I thought it would be. 

Dog sledding!! I mean you can't go wrong beautiful scenery and adorable dogs it's a win win!

They are all so cute...we got introduced to them by name. After we met the team they couldn't wait to get started.

It is a majestic back drop and there are times it was so beautiful I thought it was fake.

We stopped a long the way so the dogs could eat some snow and cool off. Apparently 30 degree weather is freezing to us but they prefer it to be around negative 17. The dogs would role around in the snow to cool down.

So cute. 

It was so much fun and we would love to do it again!!

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer and I felt like I had won the lottery after this trip and here are just a few images of the beauty we captured.

This was our lunch view

Until next time Colorado...we can't wait to see you again!

Travel Uniform

Travel attire for me needs to look cute and be cozy, especially when it's cold outside. I like a sweater or scarf that is loose and warm. A jacket that is large if you are going to a cold weather area I don't have to fit it in my bag. Leggings for comfy warm travel and some boots that are easy to take on and off but keep my feet warm on the cold plane. Also a good carry on bag that can be put on my shoulder and can carry a lot.

I also usually curl my hair the night before so I don't have to rush the next morning but it looks done.  

Some lipgloss, lotion and hand sanitizer and I'm off.

Here are the links to my favorites below:

Islamorada Day 1 Part 2

When I left you last we had spent several hours relaxing by the pool and we were heading off to get ready for dinner.

I put on my super comfy nautical maxi dress.

We drove down the road about 5 minutes to Morada Bay, a beach cafe with a wonderful little restaurant right on the beach. They had a cute shopping trailer set up as well to keep you busy while you wait.

A Cute colorful bar welcomes you as you walk in. There was a few minutes to wait for a table on the beach so we walked around for some pictures.

They were having a private dinner right next door that just happened to provide us with the most relaxing guitar jazz music through out dinner...bonus!

We snapped a couple of pictures of the sun heading down and then our table was ready.

They sat us right by the water so I was happy!

Brought us some olive tapenade and started to light all the candles and lanterns.

Isn't the view amazing? I had never actually had dinner on the beach in the sand. It really was the coolest experience.

He ordered the coconut crusted grouper with fresh veggies and old bay cream sauce, while I had the grouper ceviche. They were both fantastic...nothing like fresh fish. It was just what we wanted.

After stuffing ourselves we leaned back, had another drink and listened to the live music and the wind blowing in the palms.

We stumbled back to our room drunk on relaxation. Pulled open the balcony door to hear the breeze and slept like we were in a comma until morning. It was a perfect first day in paradise. 

Hope you are having a lovely Tuesday!

Land of the lakes

I just had a lovely short trip to Minnesota. I never knew how pretty it is, how cute the houses are and how beautiful the hydrangeas grow.

It so green, cool and crisp.

These were right outside my hotel I could not have been more in love when I came out to catch my ride in the morning.

All of their plants are on steroids 

My sweet coworkers took me down for dinner by the lake because they new how much I love water and it was such a cool summer night.

I snapped a view pictures

Then we headed to find some cocktails and settle in for dinner.

Turns out it was ladies night so we had the ladies cocktail on special, Cosmo of course ;) 

They are known for their walleye fish that I have never had so naturally I had to try it.

Served with a huge side of garlic mashed taters yumm! There were a few too many bones for my liking but I would give it a try again for sure.

I decided to walk my food off a little and snap a few more pics as the sun went down.

What a lovely place to have in your back yard. These are the same lakes that you ice fish on ...I will probably not visit during that time of year since I get cold in 80 degree weather. It was a great night with a dazzling sunset.

I headed back to the table just in time to see this madness...

We talked and talked and truly enjoyed each others company late into the evening. I am thankful for coworkers that are so fun. Then they drove me around to see the little downtown and it all got blurry as I headed off to bed.
