What a Difference a Day Makes

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 could be a fun opportunity.

But the pounds I would pack on would not agree with maybe not.

Here we are fat and happy (not in that order~giggle~).



  1. so fun! I love of my fav places {next to vail}.
    met my hubby in vail;-)

  2. I'm so glad you had a wonderful time, the picture are GORGEOUS!!

  3. Kasey,

    I love love love Breck too! So you see, I did not get any good pics of it's charm. Oh well....

    I love Vail too but not to ski...too big.

  4. So glad you guys had such a wonderful time. Breckenridge is my favorite mountain just feels magical with all the snow. I love that you took a photo and people were looking at you. I do that all the time now that I blog.

  5. Sounds like you had a great weekend! Good for you. I've never been to Colorado.
    Your cakes are beautiful. I'm with you, I don't like the taste of fondant as much as frosting. I was a cake decorator many years ago and ran a business out of my kitchen when I was 15 years old before it was cool. Word about my cakes got around and I had quite a business. Glad you are having fun with it.

  6. Hey lady the pics are beautiful but I have always know you have an eye for photography. Great work with the baby shower cake. Nice use of color and style without the same boring "pink only" theme. I want to see more cakes!!!!! Yummy!

  7. Now that does look like pure bliss! Thank you for holding out with me on the cottage. I wish you could come over and hang out with me. I may just stick a paint brush in your hand.hehe

  8. Tried to reply to your email and it came back to me sooo.....
    We got so much snow yesterday and today the kids have loved playing in it. The temps are warmer and the snow was perfect for snowmen and forts:-)

    I hope you are on your way with the pumpkin spice latte...that sounds soooo good right now.

    I hope you are having a good day,

  9. Awwww! I already heard all about the weekend, but seeing the pictures makes me smile. :)

  10. Stoppin by to say "HI!" again.
    I'm back at work and never got your e-mail :/
    "Please Send Again!"

  11. It was so nice to meet you- even if it was only for a few minutes!

    That anniversary weekend looks ~amazing~! I am so jealous of just how picturesque colorado is! And can you believe I didn't get a single shot of the mountains... not one! I suck!

  12. Car Accident!! Are you okay? I'm assuming you are or Nancy would have said something. I'm still worried about you. Call or write!

  13. I'm so glad you had a wonderful time, the picture are GORGEOUS!!
