Matt's cousin Jason got married this past weekend in Colorado, and the hubby and I used it as a perfect excuse for a summer getaway sans Violet. Colorado, you never disappoint. The entire trip was one beautiful vista after another. The wedding itself wasn't bad, either!

Not a bad sight to wake up to every morning.

The day of the wedding, we got a little detour over to Aspen. And while there was no snow, it was still a lovely sight to take in. We rode the gondolas up to the top of the mountain and I'll be honest, I cannot imagine how people ski down those slopes. They were steep. I've never been skiing, so perhaps I don't know what I'm talking about, but it looked scary to me! The drive to Aspen was hair-raising in its own way - apparently native Coloradians don't see the need for guardrails!

Jason and Dana's wedding was one of those wonderful, relaxed, totally personal affairs. Thanks to a Colorado law that apparently says just about anyone can legally marry you, the couple's parents performed the ceremony, which included a tree planting where we all got to contribute a shovel of dirt to help the couple "put down their roots". The reception was catered by two food trucks and there was even a fire pit complete with s'mores. So fun!

Another happy couple at the wedding.
