check ya later

I haven't found my groove over here on blogger...I feel much more comfy in my old tumblr space.
So until I make this a cozy space I will back at the Chasing Light Tumblr...

A good day indeed...

Last night, we took off to Fort Collins to spend the evening
chatting up a storm with an exquisite lady.
(Boon maybe had to listen to A LOT of wedding/kid talk! whoops!)
After our sleepover... we headed to Odell Brewing Co.
for a glorious run to start the day.

I was in love with the sea of green.
I am aflutter with ideas for outfitting myself next year.

The parade had some pretty loveable entries...
the little cuties dancing an irish jig and the ones throwing batons were just too much.
The senior doggy float really tugged at the heart strings.

Green beer was a must!
So was sitting in the sunshine soaking up the goodness of bagpipes.

Erik has been napping since we arrived home, which was over three hours ago.
Sleepy boy!

Tonight, we celebrate a sensational woman that just turned 30!
Hope you've had a rockin' day and stay safe tonight.

What were the highlights of your day?

Get Real!

So much love for this clever STIHL ad campaign.
A fantastic reminder to unplug, get real,
enjoy our beautiful planet, and REALLY interact!

What plans do you have for the weekend? Anything real?

Ads designed by these folks.

Delightful treat...

So many delightful treats these days.
Like the sunshine.
And this pretty image in my inbox.
Sunshine + Pretty Suits = Can't wait for summer.
But I don't want to wish away spring.
I know there are technically 11 more days until it is spring for for reals.
So I guess I will embrace this winter business while it is here and hopefully get to the mountains to play in the snow a bit more.

The anthro suits make me swoon.
I think these suits are going to be more realistic this summer.

Do you think I could pull it off?

I fell in love with this sweet little lady the other day on Pinterest.

After exploring I found out that this is Rita and she is 81 years old, living in the Seattle area. These BIG/LOUD glasses aren't exactly her style, but they are now her trademark. Her collection includes about 70 pairs (that have been gifted to her) and even though she'd rather a small simple pair of glasses... she doesn't want to hurt any feelings so she wears a pair a day. Check out some of her other styles over here. Watch the video of her explaining her story. Super cute!

My heart shades get a lot of attention and it has been very evident that they bring sunshine to the folks that I pass on the street. I am curious what it would be like to have a mega collection like Rita. I hope that in 55 years I can be half as cute as she is.

Erik would disagree...but I am okay if you want to start sending some shades my way!

Advanced Style seems like a pretty sweet blog.

Mary Hayes...make friends with Rita! She hangs out at Great Harvest!

P.S. Look at those lips! Maybe I should start wearing red lipstick now!

One Day

You know how one day Mr. Boon and I will have a commitment ceremony
or maybe a wedding or something like that?

Well...I think it would be divine if it could feel as cozy as this one looks.
Ooooo wouldn't that be celestial?
