March 2014 Update
Hiya. It’s been forever since our last update- so sorry. The good news is we have plenty of updating to do today! So, here it goes. . .
Harmon (bro-in-law) and Dondi antelope hunting in Wyoming in late October.
Hunter (nephew) and Dondi with Dondi’s first elk!
Dondi (and some friends) processed the entire elk in a weekend. . . sausage, ground elk, cube steaks and all.
Dondi and Erin backcountry snowboarding up at Cameron Pass (about an hour west of Fort Collins).
Dondi, Erin, Meg, and Matt at our long-time friend Ashley C’s wedding.
Christmas in Cincinnati– creek hiking and other fun times with Erin’s family.
LauraLee and Dondi making homemade ice cream at the cabin in NY on New Year’s Eve.
Our curtain project. . . it was a budget project relatively speaking since custom blinds for all of our windows would have been well over a thousand dollars. These will do!
In February, we did our final (crossing my fingers at least) tiny home improvement project. . . curtains! We chose a nice lightweight material to allow the light to shine through all of the windows while providing some additional insulation in the winter, shade in the summer, and privacy too.
February ski weekend in Steamboat Springs with some friends. The powder was awesome!!
Skiing at Steamboat. The trees looked like snow sculptures!
Skiing in the trees at Steamboat. The famous “champagne powder” was amazing!
While snowshoeing in Steamboat Springs, we tried to figure out a fun way to make an announcement. . . did it work? Yup! Erin is due in mid-July. Pics of the baby bump to come in our next post!
CSU vs. Harvard Polo Game- it was awesome to see CSU kick their butts!
CSU vs. Harvard- CSU won by a landslide. Sweet!
Dondi studying for the PE (Professional Engineering Exam) on a super sunny March day- he’s studied all the other days too since Jan 1st, just on our tiny home table. =)
Ryan and Sarah (Erin’s bro and sis-in-law) came to visit FoCo after a ski trip in the CO mountains– good times!
The mare in the field next to us had a foal. . . it’s been fun to watch him grow up quickly over the past week or so!
Beautiful March day in the tiny home!
We were selected to speak at TEDx FrontRange on May 22nd, 2014 in Loveland, Colorado. Can’t wait!!
In our TEDx talk, we’ll be discussing our “experiment in simple living”. The event will be live-streamed online and we’ll be sure to post the details on the blog so you can check it out. Check it out here: http://www.tedxfrontrange.com/
That’s all for now! Until next time. . . leave us a comment. We love to hear from you. -Erin & Dondi
