Boulder has had a rather unusual autumn season. While beautiful, the fall months are usually extremely short: hints of color and crisp autumn air for about two weeks and then it’s all lost to the first frost in early October. Halloween almost always has snow on the ground and costumes are planned around being weather proof.
This year was different though. The summer felt longer, warmer, and when autumn came we were really able to enjoy it. Weekends were always gloriously sunny and in the mid-70s. Tank tops and roof decks were still an option and we had NO snow before Halloween!… In fact, as I write this, we still have not had any snow.
The colors were exceptional this year, and I think that most Boulderites agreed: this was the most beautiful autumn they’ve ever seen in Colorado.
We knew that this weekend would probably be the last beautiful one for a while, so Tyty and I decided to take advantage of it. We started off Saturday morning with a latte at our neighborhood cafe, Spruce Confections.
We then hit Pearl St, which was bustling and busy with others enjoying the 75 degree weather. We popped into a couple shops and talked about how we wished it wouldn’t snow quite yet.
To celebrate the warm weekend, I wore my new Nasty Gal dress that I was sure I’d have to keep in my closet until I went to LA later this month.
We finished with a wine tasting at our favorite: West End Wine Shop.
How did you enjoy the weekend?
