The Daily Changes

How many changes of clothes do you go through in one day? Probably more than you know. I go through four on a regular day. I've never actually thought about it until this Saturday when I realized could easily fill an instragram photo template with three of the four looks I wore throughout the day. No wonder I spend so much of my life keeping up my wardrobe. It's not a full time job (yet) but an assistant would be great! The only one missing was my workout face...which was probably a good thing. I ran before I showered and lets just say my hair was in desperate need of a shower.

I'm not exactly sure why the one on the left washed out so much. My best guess is that it's the fact that we have such great natural light in our apartment. Also, sorry about the cop out instagram pictures for you! My husband fled to the mountains with the DSLR and the weekend is my only blogging time these days!

In other words I voted today!!! We have vote by mail here in Colorado which makes things very easy. I sit down next to my computer with my ballot and research everyone and each ballot measure to make sure I'm making informed choices. It takes a while but it's an interesting ritual. This year was especially long because so many judges were up for retention here. 

If you live in the States...this is just a friendly reminder to exercise your civic rights and duty! Go Vote! Please! I don't care who you vote for, just do it. Especially if you are a women...do you know how many places don't allow their women any voice or say? I read this CNN article and was reminded yet again about how precious our civic rights and rights to basic securities and freedoms are and at what great cost they were won.

Grey Gardens

Grey Gardens

The roses in the garden are dying, they are frail pink, petals hanging their heavy heads. It's crisper now, and it's dark when I get up in the morning and most nights it's dark by the time I make it home around seven or eight. I can see my breath, even as the sun comes up to warm up denver.


It rained today, a steady drizzle that started as we were riding our bikes home from a ride we had decided to go on this morning. I'm thankful we left early enough to get two dozen miles in before the rain really came in. 


But I don't mind the rain - it was cozy today, wrapped up in this sweater, folding laundry, cleaning the house, organizing and re-organizing the scattered pieces of my home, restoring order to my domain. 


I've also been watching the second season of Sherlock and plotting things for a big summer trip and the holidays that are coming up (In order: Halloween, Mom's Birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas). Have you seen it at all? It's a great show - I love figuring out the puzzles and the humor is spot on. Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes is an insufferable man. I think I like John Watson best of all the characters. The show pairs well with tea.

Work Bag

You know the school year has started because blogging has gotten tough for me to do on a consistant basis! Also, we are in the throes of coaching High School Mountain Biking, so after a week of chasing 26  8-year-olds I help my husband and some parents chase 11 thirteen through eighteen-year-olds! That doesn't leave me with a ton of blogging time. Life is busy. Life is real. And right now, life is happening on the outside of my computer!

Anyways, I just wanted to check in and say hello. That's my work bag up there, courtesy of instagram. You can see a big project in a zip lock bag and a stack of papers to be graded. If you're curious, that's another reason why I don't have any time to blog. I should be getting some fall outfits up at some point! You can (sometimes) see what I'm wearing on Cloth, my new favorite app. There's no way to direct you straight to my outfits, unfortunately, but while you're scrolling you can get lots of new outfit inspiration.
