wow, it’s almost been a month since the last point and shoot! i have missed sharing the tidbits of my day to day life with you. a lot has happened over the last few weeks, mainly or cross country move back to north carolina! today will be the first (of many) point and shoots from our homeland, the great smoky mountains.

art by meghann rader

not to continue on my kick for all things mountainous or anything, but i just can’t seem to get enough of it. i love meghann rader’s artwork because she seems to tie together so many of the things that i love: nature, geometrics, jewelry, woodland scenes and animals (not to mention killer photography). hop on over to her shop, website or blog to see more!

we’ve been visiting our home town in the snuggly mountains of north carolina this week and it’s been giving me the warm and fuzzies. the hills are so inspiring and the dusty blues of the smoky mountains take me breath away every time.

unlike any other mountains i’ve ever seen, the smoky mountains roll on and on- lightening from dark blue to light blue. in my opinion, it’s nature’s perfect ombre! since my mind has been on the mountains lately, i have been naturally drawn to things that remind me of the area. i hope you enjoy!

fox on the run features the most lovely landscapes! i am so fond of the vintage feel, serene colors and slightly weathered look that these have. can’t you just feel yourself roaming the fields of a tuscan pasture or passing through the grapvines of a vineyard in italy? these pictures take me right there, i can even feel the warm sun on my back and the slight breeze in my hair. ahhh.

soon to be beach bum

soon, i will live both by the sea and in the mountains. the idea to me is a little overwhelming, as i’ve always been several hours away from the water. i consider myself a mountain girl. i like the trails, the scenery and ever-flowing rivers. the idea that i could have all that plus sandy beaches, rolling waves,  and year round sunny weather has never occurred to me. needless to say, i’ve begun to wrap my brain around it and cannot wait to experience it. the problem? well, i’ve got all the hippie mountain clothes i need, but now i need to start gathering easy-beach, cottage-by-the-sea, sunny-weather items. for starters, i like these suits above. what do you think? i also need to find a good romper.. (any advice?)

fig. 1: undrest diagonal suit (tied for 2nd fav?)
fig. 2: sophia top (maybe my favorite)
fig. 3: floral rush
fig. 4: avellanas suit
fig. 5: volcum striped
fig. 6: modern triangle bikini (tied for 2nd fav?)
fig. 7: sailor streamed bikini
fig. 8: plunging halter maillot

our pike’s peak adventure

pike's peak colorado springs
 
this week i’m so excited to have my sister and dear friend in town for a visit. they are our first official visitors since the big move! to really show them the views of colorado, we took a cog to the top of pike’s peak. it’s the highest cog in the world and the views are absolutely stunning!

i love looking at the tree line on this mountain, it makes for such a pretty cap on the top.

the day was so clear and the sky was such a brilliant blue, it was the perfect conditions to see way off in the distance. these snow capped mountains are over 100 miles away!

even though the high in colorado springs was 60°F yesterday, on the top of pike’s peak it was 4°F  with winds blowing up to 70 mph! i’ve never experienced such conditions! the wind was so strong that we could fall into backwards and not fall down.  there was also a sweet little cafe on top where we enjoyed some warm hot chocolate and some chili.

and here’s the little red train we traveled on!

we’re going to be driving home to north carolina this weekend for thanksgiving, so i’ll be signing off until monday. i hope each of you have a wonderful weekend and i hope to see you back here next week! love, bonnie

the last of the fall series

bonnie forkner fall series

happy monday, lovelies!  i did another trail race this weekend, and the scenery was so pretty i couldn’t help but share it with you!  isn’t this view breath taking? actually, i didn’t have enough breath in me for the view to take, but if i did- it would have.  the weather was perfect- 38 degrees, sunny and not a single breeze.  too cold to stand around in, but just right to be working hard in.  i was so happy to have two good friends running it as well, and we all came back to my place for a brunch of pumpkin waffles and apple cider afterwards (i was thinking about those waffles the whole time i was running!).  the race was very hilly and just over 7 miles, and i finished in 1:28:50- slow but steady i go! and to recover? a massage this afternoon followed by a cup of tea with a good friend should do the trick.
