I love traditions. And although I like to often pretend to myself that I’m really good at keeping them alive, over the years I’ve realized that there aren’t too many that I’ve held onto and actually upheld as I’ve entered adulthood. So when Adam and I got married four years ago, we made a pact that every year around the date of our wedding anniversary we would return to the small town where we were married and stay overnight in the same hotel (and room!) that we spent the night of our wedding.

So far, we’ve stuck to our tradition and are heading to LaPorte, Colorado once again on Sunday to stay at the Armstrong and celebrate four years of married bliss. I count my lucky stars everyday that I married a man as wonderful as Adam, and every year when we make the time to take this trip I’m reminded of the beauty in tradition and how important it is to maintain precious memories.

While packing up my bag this week for our weekend getaway, I was dreaming of the perfect “old town Fort Collins” afternoon stroll outfit, so figured why not bring back one an oldie but goodie style layout : top | middle | bottom.

Happiest of weekends to you dear friends. If you’re stuck in the Seattle rain, I really hope that sun finds its way outta the clouds for ya!

P.S. If you get a chance make sure to check out my friend Moorea’s new shop. So many beautiful accessories and home goodies! I want it all, especially that leather pack!

Happy Anniversary you two! I think I should’ve told Alex we needed to make a tradition out of going to Paris every year on our anniversary ;) Hope you’re having a beautiful time and getting a breakfast burrito fix!
