Jeff and I joined our good friends Jess and Paul in Colorado for our first wintery vacation this year (you might remember Jess and Paul from their apple picking engagement session and destination wedding Punta Cana). We usually pick warmer destinations for vacations during the coldest months of the year, but we’ve both always wanted to try skiing the real mountains outside of Michigan.
Jess and I are officially travel buddies. We met in Chicago, but I feel like we’ve spent more time together in other states and countries over the past two years since I moved away from Chicago. We’ve been to New Orleans, Punta Cana, Portland, Seattle and Colorado, and we’ll be rooming together for Entretrip this April in Mexico. I hope the trend continues (P.S. Jess is a travel agent who books destination weddings. Jess and I both got married in other countries and can highly recommend the experience. Shoot her a note if you want to learn more. She’s amazing).
I didn’t take my camera out much—one of the side effects of very cold fingers is the lack of desire to get your camera out—but I did manage to snap a few photos along the way.
Getting directions to Cooper Mountain.
Note the temperature.
Could I possibly be more fashionable?
