I love taking photographs. I really do. But it is my job, as well as my hobby, so when I'm on vacation I tend to want to put the camera away and enjoy the time without a camera in front of my face. It's hard because my mind is wired to constantly take pictures so moments can always be remembered. Sometimes (a lot of times) I have to remind myself that I'll remember the moments even better if I truly experience them for myself.
When we were on vacation in Breckenridge, Colo., with Nathan's family this last week I really tried to soak it all in and keep my camera in it's bag most of the time. Nathan got some shots with his point-and-shoot, so this blog post is a compilation of both of our cameras.
Our time in Breckenridge was like no other vacation I've had. It was athletic and I'm not a skier, so I was sore. I've never been sore on a vacation. :) That said, it was refreshing to change it up and see the mountains of Colorado. It is so beautiful out West, that's for sure! Breckenridge is this picture-perfect mountain town that seems too cute to be real. I loved walking the streets and admiring the quaint houses and shops ... and the Christmas lights were up all around town. Love it!
We started at Casa Bonita in Denver. SO much going on ...
Our view from the condo ... :)
I did not attempt slopes that looked like this ...
A little hot tub time was necessary after a day of skiing.
