This was what was up there this morning, and it was lovely in the clear blue.  We are approaching the start of the National Western Stock Show here in Denver, one of Kelsea’s and my favorite mother-daughter traditions.  Usually “Stock Show Weather” is as bitter cold as it can be, but I think we may actually have slightly warmer temperatures than the Polar Vortex has offered us in the past 10 days, which deserves a yee-hah.  We are going for opening day on Saturday, so you can look forward to a photo report next week. Llamas and horses and pigs, oh my!

Up Up and Away

Quote of the day: “It was rather beautiful: the way he put her insecurities to sleep. The way he dove into her eyes and starved all the fears and tasted all the dreams she kept coiled beneath her bones.”  — Christopher Poindexter
