Blogging, or lack thereof

So, as you may have noticed, I have not been blogging as much as I used to. With the holidays, a few freelance design projects, busy weekends, wedding planning and my new job, I have been a little tight on time. Well, I finally made myself sit down and update the past month or so. Below you will find four new posts to enjoy, light on the copy side of things, but some great photos to check out. I got a sweet new camera from Melissa's parents for Christmas that I have been trying out. Takes some great photos!

Our wedding planning has been moving along quite well. Still lot's to do, but it feels somewhat under control at this time. You can see our wedding web site HERE. Our Save the dates went out in the mail:

My new job has been very hectic, but is starting to come together with some exciting new packaging design and branding projects.

Headed out to Vail Pass this weekend to make some turns on a snowmobile. Have not been on one in a while, so should be interesting. Keep an eye out for some photos from that, hopefully sooner than later.


Crested Butte

This weekend we enjoyed one of my gifts to Melissa for Christmas ... a ski weekend in Crested Butte, CO. I've been here a couple times before, but it was Melissa's first visit. A 5.5 hour drive from Denver (well worth it for no traffic and no lines at the lifts, unlike Summit County and Vail). We stayed Friday night through Sunday. On Saturday we skied as it snowed all day, then Sunday we took a 4 mile snowshoe on the road to Gothic (closed in the winter, goes to Aspen in the Summer). We enjoyed the local shops and restaurants in town and even got in a couple more Breweries on the way (Gunnison Brewery and Amica's Brewery). The drive home was a bit longer due to an hour long road closure on 285 as the snow blew across the plains and iced up the road. Four vehicles had flipped in the icy conditions. We made it across slowly and in one piece.
