Tom and I took a few days last week and flew to Colorado to beat the Texas heat. What a wonderful time we had! We spent a few days in Estes Park and stayed at the historic Stanley Hotel– the one where Stephen King was inspired to write The Shining. It is a beautiful old hotel with a great porch where we sat in white wicker chairs to peer upon the majestic Rocky Mountains. No ghosts seen… but we did watch The Shining on TV. It plays 24/7 at the hotel.
We also visited Tom’s sister, Sue, in Lafayette, CO where she owns a yarn/knitting shop. Tom comes from a family of talented women. His mother was an expert seamstress. Sue’s store, Mew Mew’s Yarn Shop, is named for one of her cats, Mew Mew.
Then we headed for Vail for a few more days. I love the charm of Vail Village where we used to take our kids in the summer when they were small. We hadn’t been there for about 20 years. The place has really grown! We had fun riding the gondola and strolling through the streets.
So glad we had some time to just relax before gearing up for the busy back-to-school season. Hope you’re having some R & R, too.
