Wash Your Spirit Clean

Martin and I just got back from our little spring break getaway.  We spent a night at Chautauqua Park in Boulder, CO and it was beautiful.  We'd been to the park lots of times before, but had no idea there were little cottages nestled in the back.  If you ever get a chance to visit I highly recommend staying here :) It was nice to only drive for an hour and suddenly feel very far away from the big bustling city.  It was just what we needed. 
Peace and serenity. 

When we got into town yesterday afternoon we went for a hike, which viewed the amazing flatirons. It was the easiest hike I've ever been on, yet I felt like I was climbing Mount Everest.  I was out of breath and my legs were tiring so easily.  This baby girl is making me feel like the most pathetic person ever.  Martin was sweet and waited patiently for me as I slowly trudged behind him...but it's okay because he made the view even nicer. 
My handsome caveman...who needs a gym anyways when you have nature?
Our little cottage was perfect. No t.v., no distractions. We wish we could have stayed for more than one night...maybe we'll come back next year with our little girl.
I loved waking up to the sound of the birds chirping and the sun shining on the hardwood floors. I kept thinking that if we lived in this little cottage we would never leave.  We talk all the time about what our future home will be like...we don't mind it being small or old, we just want to be able to walk outside and be surrounded by nature.
