Colors of October

Because of Clare, we lived in Aspen for two summers, I love Aspen.
We hiked and do a lot of picnic there, I love the Aspen leaves rustling in the breeze and I promised myself, that someday, I am going back to Aspen in the fall to see the beautiful golden Aspen trees.
Two years ago, we did, but that was first week of September, we were two early for the colors.
Early last week, we finally made it.....

Beautiful Aspen, I love you....

I remember we were here - Benedict Music Tent, few times a week.... concerts after concerts.....  Sarah Chang, Lang Lang, and we were neighbor with Gil Shaham in 2006.

We went to Maron Bells again, but it was closed for cars because there were too many visitors, we had to go back to the city and take a bus, we didn't have that much time to spare, so we skipped. : (

we went to the music school....

with our little boy this time....

the area where the piano practice rooms used to be were under construction, so we only get to see this part of castle creek.

and how could I leave Aspen without the baby back ribs at Hickory House? Yum!

and all that..... bring us to

Colors of October


Stop by to see the colors of October in other part of the world at Our Beautiful World! Woof Woof!

A Much Better View of the Moon

This is what I listen to when I am feeling blue
(click to listen)

If I lose my job

I'll sleep till noon

If the news is bad

watch cartoons

Jared Liffreing - Pet Peeve from Jared Liffreing on Vimeo.

If your house burns down,

You'll have lots more room,

And a much better view of the moon.

Lyrics by Evans and Doherty

 We have been to the concert of Kingston Trio twice here in Vegas, just love them!

And if you click on the cartoon, it was presented by Jared, Clare's boyfriend, it was his graduation project at CalArts, isn't he a talented young man?
And the background music was played and composed by Clare! 
And the little bark at the end of the film was voiced by Papillon, my Papi boy : )

PTI Make it Monday #224 ~ Two-toned Stamped Sentiments

The Challenge:

The card created by Danielle is so beautiful and I can't wait to try it.

I was thinking of pink and black at first, but I do not have any suitable pink ink to go along, somehow, I do like the black and white sentiment and have the eiffel in pink.

Have a lovely weekend my friend!
