Henry and I escaped Chicago for a weekend away in Telluride with old and new friends. It was my first time there, so I loved wandering around town and exploring all the cute shops and restaurants. A couple of my favorites were Two Skirts and LittleHouse – a women’s boutique and a delicious dining spot, respectively. There’s something so quaint about a mountain town and even more special about Telluride because there are very few chain stores and franchises. And even more special, the storefronts remain original to the architecture that’s been there for the last century.
Of course, you can ski, snowboard and snowshoe, but if you aren’t into winter sports like me, you can take the gondola over the mountain for the same amazing views. I also loved seeing all of the wildlife. One morning we woke up to elk right outside of our house. Definitely don’t get that in the city!
We also had amazing weather – sunny skies and temperatures in the 30s and 40s. Just perfect for enjoying the outdoors, so I can only imagine how beautiful it is in the summer. Telluride, we will be back!
Thanks for stopping by! XO, MS
