as sad as i am to admit it, autumn is here out west.
it’s not that i hate fall, its more like, the summers are so busy and fleeting that i may have shed a few tears.
the upside of course, is the transition of my closet!
sweaters, flannels, boots, and beanies are making their way in.
it’s hard living in a two by four log cabin with my sweater and boot collection but somehow i manage to always find the room.
thank god because Nest in Jackson Hole just got in their new arrivals!
here are some of my favorites…
is it sad to admit that in my 31 years on earth, this was my first time in the great state of georgia?
where all my georgia peaches at!?!
like most of you, it’s hard to hear of devastation from so far away and not know how to help.
watching the news and reading stories of the hurricane harvey tragedy really sparked something in me to do what i can to help.
i realize that as a blogger, i’m seen as an “influencer”, and that my reach is relatively far.
i’m saying a prayer to the blogging Gods to help one of my dear friends and her amazing organization, that is helping a sliver of the tragedy.
we hit the fair, hard.
every year it still makes my heart happy that little old towns continue this american tradition.
from petting the animals, to the rides that i’m pretty certain are just truck transformers,
to the overly fried and super sugary food, and the games that no one is every able to win…
i just love the teton county fair!
i think the best part about living out West is that you can jump in your car, go in any direction, and end up somewhere awesome. my girlfriends and i took a quick trip down to bear lake, utah this summer and stayed at the seriously awesome glamping ranch, Conestoga Ranch. how sweet was our glamp set up?!
bear lake is a relatively short drive from jackson hole, and also only about an hour and a half from salt lake city, utah – for all of you coming from that direction. the lake is famous for its turquoise green water which gives it the nickname “the caribbean of the rockies”. a gorgeous mountain lake with views…. yeah, i’ll take it!we spent one day riding bikes, provided by the ranch, to the little teeny town next to the lake. it brought me back to my childhood days of summers up in michigan and that nostalgia continued with the copious amounts of unhealthy foods we devoured. “famous” and “not so famous” raspberry shakes, cheese burgers, curly frees with fry sauce, and lots and lots of diet cokes were consumed. my egg and dairy allergies went out the window for those few days of american food bliss. i think we ate pizza too but it was just one big fat-kid dream, so i’m not entirely sure.
mainly, we chilled and enjoyed a different part of the mountains. to be honest, the tents were so awesome, we didn’t really want to leave them! the restaurant at Conestoga Ranch waaaaay exceeded my expectations….and yes, more pizza was consumed. their raspberry salad with local greens and fresh local honey was out. of. this. world. we may or may not have requested honey by the spoonful… okay, enough about food, here are lots of pictures from our glamping stay!
oh, AND they provide all of their guests with a campfire and s’mores every night! clearly we ate way too much good food on our weekend away, but what are girl’s trips for?!
