art and summer times

We have a beautiful botanical garden in Denver that hosted some more beautiful art from Chihuly this summer, and we were able to take a trip down there with my parents.  It was SUCH a perfect night, and although there were about 40 million people at the gardens that night, it was so fun!  We ate dinner outside, in the little cafe at the gardens, and watched all the fancy people dressed up for the fundraising galas or weddings the gardens were hosting that night.  Technically I think it was just the early days of fall, but it felt like it was still summer.  Looking at these photos while giant snowflakes are falling outside my window right now is keeping the chill out.  Also the hot pink down booties I'm wearing.  We just finished up a lovely dinner with my mother-in-law and her sister who was in town for her first Broncos game.  Even though the Broncos lost, I think they still had fun, and it was good to see them both!  So many things to warm the heart this time of year.  Happy 2015!!
