A Morning Hike in Boulder (and our wedding rings!)

Happy Sunday all.

I hope everyone is relaxing and enjoying their Sunday so far 🙂

The family and I decided to take another Sunday morning hike this AM, so around 900 we headed off to Boulder, CO.

Boulder is the home of Colorado University and the CU Buffalo’s, but it also has TONS of amazing hiking and running trails.

Boulder is a beautiful 30-45 minute drive for us from Denver depending on traffic.

We decided to hit the Sanitas Valley Trail this morning

The trail started out fairly gentle, but we were huffing and puffing quickly!

The hike was fairly challenging with some steep incline in the first 1.5 miles, but short enough to be manageable.

Not to mention it offered some seriously amazing views of Boulder and the surrounding towns.

It was a beautiful afternoon on the trails. . . but a little warm for Gusman.

Until he found himself a little watering hole.  He was a happy pup then.

The hike was about 3 and a half miles round trip, but took us nearly 2 hours.  There were some fairly serious incline and decline, so we were huffing and puffing the entire way.  Even though it was only half the distance of last weeks hike, I felt it all the same!

Thankfully, Zach and I had plans to hit up our own little watering hole after…

Avery brewery in Boulder.

We’ve stopped by here a couple times after hikes in Boulder.  They have an a great selection of tap beers and some pretty solid bar food.

Unfortunately this afternoon I forgot my ID at home, so only Zach was able to order beer…but we managed to share his orders 🙂

Ironically enough a woman from the table next to ours came up and told me she also forgot her ID at home…and tried to explain that her toddler was her ID, but apparently that didn’t fly either.  Don’t forget your ID if you want to enjoy Avery’s beer!

Wedding Bands

I’ve promised good pictures of our wedding bands all weekend, so here you go finally!

I love Zach’s ring.  He designed it off pictures he’d seen online.  It’s a platinum band with copper and titanium thin strips in the middle.  I love how unique it is.

My band is very thin, delicate band with channel set diamonds that match the ones in my engagement ring around the entire band.

It’s BEAUTIFUL and exactly what I wanted.  It looks perfect with my engagement ring and can’t wait to wear them as a set!

So…not a bad Sunday morning if I do say so myself.  Now it’s time to relax for the rest of the afternoon 🙂

Quesiton of the day:  How was your Sunday morning spent?  Do you have Sunday rituals in your home?
