Just looking at these pictures brings back those feelings of calmness. And those feelings are especially welcomed as we near the end of this house build, just wrapped up Halloween and I am currently sitting in the waiting room while Olivia gets four cavities filled. She’s doing great but my nerves are still shot.
So, beautiful pictures of Breckenridge to keep my mind and my heart calm. We took a trip to Breck in October for a wedding. I’m not sure I posted it here (I had every intention of doing so but apparently never did) but last November on our hike to Sapphire Point we came across a couple that had just gotten married, the two of them, right there on the trail overlooking the Dillon Reservoir and the breathtaking mountain. We witnessed their marriage and I took a couple of pictures for them. We exchanged info and a few months later they sent us an invite to their wedding with family and friends. It was such an incredible moment and one that we won’t forget, we knew we had to make attending their wedding in Breckenridge happen. And we did.
It was the perfect time to escape more of the heat in Texas so we made a week of it. This was our first fall in Breckenridge and it was beautiful. I couldn’t stop saying “Look at those trees! Look at the fall colors! Oh my gosh it’s just so pretty.” But it really was.
The week before we got there it had snowed quite a bit but the majority at the lower elevations had melted by the time we got there. The kids found what little snow was left though. The weather was perfect. The views were incredible and we were to only have plans for the day of the wedding. The rest of our time there was open to do whatever we wanted. That turned out to be alot of slow mornings and short hikes.
The first morning we woke up and walked outside it was cold and quiet. It’s what I had been longing for.
We took several walks around the neighborhood and I’m pretty sure by the end they were tired of me asking them to stop and take pictures with all the fall foilage.
Also, it snowed. In October. This is a pretty normal occurence but for this girl, snow in October was like a dream come true.
We had only been there a few days when we realized that we were not going to be ready to go home but that we had to. We flew this time so we fully embraced the time we had.
