This weekend was an autumn weekend if I have ever experienced one. Both Saturday and Sunday were gorgeous days; the leaves in the valley are still changing, acres and acres of ranch lands are covered with neatly rolled hay bails and the chill in the air is unmistakably that of fall.

What was so ironic was while I was dressed in scarves, boots and layers all weekend, I was also helping my best friend plan her upcoming June wedding in Steamboat Springs. The changing of the seasons is one of the things I love most about Northwest Colorado. I love that we experience all four seasons and better yet, we get to plan events year round. Pink roses might not be an autumn flower, but it is fun to plan for the seasons ahead.
