Jackson loves to sit in the window and daydream about catching a bird or a squirrel. At least that’s what I imagine he’s thinking. He hangs out there so often there’s a ton of little kitty paw prints on the white window sill. He’s lucky he’s so damn cute.

Little known fact: M’s favorite beer is Blue Moon. Whenever we can find it, we purchase the variety pack with the mango and the apricot flavors. So on the way back from a recent weekend getaway, we stopped at the Blue Moon Brewery in Denver. I ordered their fried chicken with macaroni and cauliflower and it was superb. I mean, I’m going to love any fried chicken cause MMM, but this was particularly crispy and flavorful without being too oily. I can’t even talk about how good the mac and cheese was, but trust me, friend. Oh, the beer was good too, I guess 🙂

Happy Friday!

Looking back on my most recent photos, I don’t seem to have many photos that don’t include my dog or cats. It’s been cold and snowy in Colorado for the past few weeks, so I’ve been cuddling up to the animals inside. This photo was taken amongst the many pet pics on a warm-ish February day. Long live days that give us a kiss of warmth to remind us what it feels like to be able to feel our toes. Or is it just my toes that are perma-numb during the winter?

Wishing you a sporadically warm day,

Seattle

Seattle, Washington: one of my favorite places I’ve ever visited. Whether it’s the strong coffee, the still fashionable plaid shirts (yes!), or the high likelihood of stumbling upon live music around any corner, there’s always something wonderful to discover. I took this photo on my first trip to Seattle in 2012. It also happened to be my first solo trip. This was my view after hiking up to Kerry Park on a brisk winter’s day. The clouds parted just long enough for me to capture Mt. Rainier peeking through behind the famous Seattle skyline at sunset.

Book

So excited for this that I couldn’t wait until Friday. The second annual book tree is up in the Brundage-Durham household! This year we found a Santa from my Poppie’s Christmas stash that he gave to me before he died. Of all the things that were not returned to me or were subsequently stolen, I’m happy I have his Christmas ornaments. I no longer have much else of his, so this weird white ass Santa  is extra special. The curious kitties have been stealing the little ornaments and batting them around the house which I don’t love, but they’ve got to participate in the holiday cheer somehow, I suppose. Maybe next year we’ll do a book menorah to replace my menorah that is currently COVERED in wax. We’ll see!

Thanks for letting me share the picture and my disjointed thoughts about it.

Warmly,

Maegan

Photo Friday on Saturday

Hi friends! I have so many recent photos to share, but this is my favorite.

Atticus and I went on a solo hike to Rampart Reservoir last weekend. It’s such a beautiful place, and I’d highly recommend it. To get to the reservoir proper, you have to pay $6. It’s totally worth it if you want a good hike around a beautiful reservoir full of wild flowers and staggering rock formations. If you just want a great photo opportunity, take a right at the fork in the road instead of a left toward the reservoir road. Follow that road for about 45 minutes, and there are two places where you can pull off the road for some of the most scenic views I’ve ever seen in Colorado. You’re welcome 🙂

Warmly,

Maegan

I love everything about this sign, especially that it rotates. I found it walking around downtown  Seattle on a cold, rainy day. There were a lot of rookie mistakes that happened later that night that I’ll share in another post. Despite that, it was a wonderful adventure.

P.S. I posted this on Instagram and A Beautiful Mess liked it! Guys, they are my blog idols. I’ve been a reader since 2011. If you haven’t read their blog, go check it out!

For this trip to Taos, I didn’t bring any hair product. I just put my hair in a bun after I showered. About four hours later, I took it down to see what it was doing naturally. Apparently, my natural hair looks a lot like Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds, circa seasons 2-5. I caught a glimpse of my hair plus Ray Bans in a store window, and I had to take a picture. I guess it’s an easy, go-to Halloween costume. I just need a crossbody satchel, a revolver, and some statistics about serial killers.
