Long story: I am finally documenting Nick’s huge accomplishment: running 100 miles of trail in Steamboat Springs! I wanted to put a lot of thought and care into this recap, and you’ll probably undestand why it took so long after you see what transpired.

Happy Monday! And it’s a really happy Monday because I work today and tomorrow and then I fly to Seattle for the Three Amigas’ Retreat with my besties! I’m so excited!

I haven’t been feeling inspired to blog lately, which means there have been a lot of unshared photos (including last week’s outfits)… until now. Enjoy!
