Around the Neighborhood

10 Apr

I took a short walk around our neighborhood tonight and decided to take some photos with our new camera.

This is a photo of a super cool Vespa owned by one of our neighbors. It reminds me of the moped I rode back in Red River when I was 14. My dad insisted that I get my motorcycle license so I could drive myself around our tiny little ski town. I thought I was the coolest 14 year old around:)

Here is some graffiti on a nearby dumpster. I think I might start a graffiti series…it seems to be pretty popular, unfortunately. I find it quite sad that some people find pleasure in destroying other peoples’ property. 

These next photos are random photos from some of the shops along Broadway.

The Chosen Book for the Chosen People. This photo is for my previous roommates Stephanie and Joyseph. I hope jew enjoy:)

This one reminds me of a small town in NM…Socorro reminds me of a rest area supported by stilts supposedly to keep the snakes out…eek! I’m sure the burritos are great:/

One day I hope to purchase a camper just like this and travel the world!! Or maybe just the US:)

I ❤ Tulips!!!

I also love the reflection of the tree in this door!

And back home! Lovin’ life on Logan Street!

Celebrate Spring

7 Apr

Spring is one of my favorite times of year. It’s an indication that Summer (my favorite time of year) is just around the corner! Although, today is cool and dreary in Denver, there have been more than a few Spring days and here is proof:

This daffodil is the first sign of Spring at our house. The recent cold days have caused the petals to wilt around the edges:( but I’m sure it will be revived once the 70 degree weather returns.

The cherry blossoms that line our street are also in full bloom. These trees are one of the many reasons I love our place.

Our neighbors Aaron Jones and Laura Grandis, planted some really pretty purple flowers so I had to take a photo. They are turning into quite the gardeners:) I have to admit I’m pretty jealous of their amazing vegetable and herb gardens in the backyard! Hopefully one day we’ll get around to beautifying our yard.

Here are a few reasons to celebrate the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring:

1. Flowers and green grass

2. Shorts and Sundresses

3. More daylight hours for running, of course

4. Patios and sunbathing

5. Rooftop happy hours and the return of Bud Light lime:)

6. Baseball

7. Volleyball or Scrabble in the park

8. 70+ degree weather and warm breezes

9. Not having to wear layers of clothes to work

10. Aviator sunglasses

I’m interested to see if there are any other reasons you’re excited about Spring? I’d like to hear them:)
