RAINY BROADMOOR DAYS


LOCATION: The Broadmoor
DETAILS: Jane Double Shoulder Satchel | GAP Jeans | Flowy Top (similar) | Sandals (similar)

Beth and I headed to the Broadmoor hoping for the perfect golden hour with dreamy mountain backdrops, but halfway there, big raindrops starting splashing on the windshield. We laughed and kept going because we can work with rain since we're super flexible like that. ;) Something you learn when you move to Colorado is that it gets cold out when it rains. As in, it drops like twenty degrees in ten minutes when it starts raining. As a southerner, this was mind boggling to me because back home, I'm pretty sure it just feels hotter and more humid during summer rains.

Anyway, back to the Broadmoor. We grabbed some warm drinks from our favorite little shop, and headed out to the patio. Friday confessions: I seriously do not love having my picture taken when other people are around. It makes me feel incredibly uncomfortable. Beth knows this, but she always pushes me to step out of my comfort zones and ignore the people who are pointing/staring at the strange girls taking pictures in the rain and trying to avoid the lightning. Don't worry guys, it's super safe. WINK.

Y'all are so brave! I'm embarrassed to even take my camera out at social events with friends! I'm not sure why, it's something I should probably work on...

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

Man! These rain photos are SO DARN FUN! I love that our phones kept alarming us of the flash flood warnings and the thunder kept making us jump! #memories

Elizabeth Than said...

Taking photos with other people around is one thing J and I feel uncomfortable too, but we're working on that. Hopefully one day one of us will be able to step in Beth's position to encourage and build that confidence. I am super in love with the bag you have as much as Leigh Duffle Satchel!

Rain or no rain, these photos turned out great! You don't look uncomfortable at all, so way to go on working past those fears of being photographed in front of strangers! I wish I could get past that myself! I would also love some rain; how I'd love to hear the rain fall and the thunder roll.


That satchel is just perfect. I think you guys did the work for me in picking the perfect one!
