You know those weekends away, albeit few and far between, that make you refreshed and possibly fall in love all over again?
I was lucky enough to have one of those over my anniversary weekend. It was simply blissful.
We ate, we laughed, we walked, we talked....blissful.
Beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado!
I realized while uploading my pictures that I did not take one picture of Main Street. Not one! It is a large but quaint few blocks with shops ranging from mountian gear to a doggie bakery with the cutest Starbucks (that is in an old tiny house) and a crepe cart smack dab in the middle.
Oh the crepes....yummmmmmmmmm!
We did a little hiking up by lake Dillon.
Oh yea, remember how I said we ate? And boy did we....
My favorite part of the whole weekend (except for the crepes-yummm again) was our "fancy" dinner out.
Le Petit Paris is an amazing little French Restaurant right off of Main Street. Sisters Arielle and Marie are the sweetest little team and make you feel at home from the moment they take your coat until the usher you out the door and wave goodbye until you are out of sight. Precious.
Just my kind of place. French bisto-esque with while linen table cloths and vintage advertisements all over the walls.
And the food. Well, the food was To. Die. For.
3 course meals that change with the seasons.
I was trying to be sneaky and not bother the people sitting 2 feet from us, who were probably wondering "who is this crazy girl taking pictures of her table".
After ordering that bottle of wine that is now my new favorite, and having some amazing fresh french bread we dined on French Onion soup and a goat cheese salad that I am determined to duplicate. Boeuf Bourguignon that was deconstructed and amazing and profiteroles that were beyond melt in your mouth!
Now I'm hungry....
The weather was beautiful all weekend, it seemed to be in the stars for us.
And yes, even though we were leaving fat and happy I had to end my weekend here....
Of course, before I realized I hadn't taken a picture of my crepe, it was gone....
I'm thinking of opening one of these....it could be a fun opportunity.
But the pounds I would pack on would not agree with me....so maybe not.
Here we are fat and happy (not in that order~giggle~).
On the art of living a real simple life - I’ve adapted a new habit lately. With coffee in hand, I start each day in front of this big picture window, overlooking the mountain view. No lights need...
