7 things

I'm setting another intention this year and that is to blog more. I used to love blogging before I started jewel making, just as I did cooking. I really want to start getting back in to these things I enjoy more this year especially being new to a city and having the time and space to share the experience here with you. To start I'm going to bring back my weekly 7 simple things post. When I began my blog (..in 2007. wow. time .is. scary) I started a tradition of capturing 7 little moments in my week that make me happy here.

As I'm new to Denver and really haven't seen much here yet because its been so cold and snowy, I will say when I do leave my house it's always a good time. This little city seems to have many hidden gems to explore. Although I do wonder why the universe moved me here in the winter.. I remember now why I hate winters. But when the sun does come out it's actually beautiful weather. Looking forward to sharing more weekly posts with you and hoping the sun stays out a little longer on these days from here on out.  Here's my top 7 things from life so far in Denver. The first two are from the same place because I loved this museum so much. Put it on your list if you're visiting Denver.

I know this has been my worst year yet keeping the blog updated. I cannot believe the summer officially ends today and tomorrow begins the first day of fall. I couldn't be more excited, my favorite season of all. It's like everything starts over again in the fall. This summer I feel as though I've experienced so much in such a short period of time. My summer started off with a promotion at Harley-Davidson to marketing and social media manager, which has required at lot more time and attention than my previous position. So to say the very least, it has been keeping my plate quite full {hence the lack of blog love}.  To keep sane I still always check in every week and think of all those simple lil moments that make me happy. Here's to seven that just happened in this last week.

7 simple things

right now i feel like my life is on a non-stop roller coaster ride full of highs, lows, and sharp unexpected turns. so many decisions to make, and who knows where any of them will lead. i think it is so important to always stop, and think of all those little things we have or do in our day, that makes us happy and be extremely thankful for those simple things.
