Some things I: miss about Colorado

I want to make sure I use lameyland as a writing outlet. I struggle to get pen to paper (figuratively) so to combat that, I want to to start a small series called “Some things I:” where I just get things off my chest, in category form. So.

Halloween Throwbacks

Halloween is so endearing to me this year. It’s made me so happy to see everyone dressing up and putting in the effort to be silly and not take themselves too seriously. Especially with the messiness of the world these days… it’s been a nice break the last few days.

Yosemite National Park: the first of the big Ys

Back in the day before I really dove into the national park world, I had a vague understand what the parks were, knew there were a bunch in the middle of the country, and that Teddy Roosevelt was involved somehow.

Small Town Colorado: Nederland, CO

Hi! I have a section of this blog called Small Town Colorado. Even though I don’t live there anymore, I still want to share some of the small towns I came across. They really were one of my favorite parts about Colorado.

Which makes them all seem pretty tiny and cute and endearing. And of course, there are actual tiny towns around the state, and they are particularly cute and endearing.

This one is all about Nederland, Colorado. Nederland is tucked away just a few miles into the foothills – about 30 minutes into Boulder Canyon.

TTJ: a stroll in Sedona, Arizona

Welcome to my Teeny Travel Journal! My TTJ! I decided there are places around the world that I’ve visited and want to highlight, without any fluff. Just some snapshots of the city, park, town, region, whatever… without many words to clutter up the post. So it’s a travel journal… but a small one. Plus I really like the word teeny.

End of summer reflection

I found this reflection survey from a coworker, and I thought it was actually pretty cool. Remember facebook notes and how we would do random surveys? This is kinda like that!!! I know it’s kind of corny… but I think it’s pretty important to reflect on moments, time periods, events that happen in your life.
