It's me...


Welcome to a small peek inside of my brain. I have no idea where my adventures or thoughts will take you, but let's hope that it is somewhere fun or somewhere thought provoking. This picture is from a Polaroid that my friend Matt took of me after I finished yet another day of snowboarding at Copper Mountain last year. I've been watching the snow reports for this year and I can only hope the snow continues to drop this heavy all year. If it does, it looks like a wonderful year on the slopes. After having the mountains at such easy access for the past two winters I have become spoiled by having the ability to pick and choose my days of riding. Now that I am back in the Lone Star State I can only hope for good snow on my chosen week at the mountain this year.

I named this blog "dreaming of colorado" because that is often my state of mind. While I may live and work in the Dallas area my thoughts often go back to fond memories of my short stint as a Colorado resident. Don't get me wrong, I do not regret moving back to Texas one bit. I have never loved a job as much as I love my current job. But I do often think of Colorado. As I am writing this I am hearing on the news about a winter storm that is hitting Denver. Just the thought of it brings back so many memories of things that some people consider a hassle, but I always loved. Waking up early so you can warm up your car in single digit temperatures, while scraping 3-6 inches of fresh snow off your car. Leaving at least 15-20 minutes earlier than normal, turning on the 4-wheel drive and navigating the plowed and unplowed roads on your trek to work......Well, enough reminiscing for now. I'm sure you'll get a little more later....
