There are so many adventures I never blog about because they're a part of my personal life and have nothing to do with weddings or elopements, or couples in general for that matter. But I want to start sharing, I want you to not only see the work I am passionate about creating but the bits of life that will help you get to know me as well.

I am a huge fan of foxes, they have always fascinated me and I was so amazed when I moved to Breckenridge, Colorado, and realized that they were a common sighting! Fantastic Mr. Fox is one of my favorite movies of all time and I think of it anytime I see these curious orange fluff balls prancing about. Although they've caught my eye many times throughout my six years in Colorado, (strolling through busy streets and catching oohs and ahhs from those watching) they're also elusive and I NEVER have my camera on hand! Last night that changed.

We had just finished dinner and gotten back out to Good Times Adventures (Snow Caps Dogsledding) and walked into the cabin when I saw a flash of orange out of the corner of my eye. Finley and Kyote growled and a few dogs in the yard called out with lonesome howls. I peered outside to see this curious fellow staring at me from the window. I quietly grabbed my camera and slowly opened the door to step away from the warm wood burning stove into the crisp cold air. The stars were so bright with no moon in sight and Mr. Fox eyed me warily before continuing his hunt for dinner. I sat down to watch as he stepped within three to four feet of me, often looking up to see if I had any alternative intentions before licking up leftover kibble from feeding the huskies. The yard was perfectly still and quiet (amazing for 170 dogs) and Mr. Fox didn't make a sound, even when he'd jump and run! He was so quiet and agile as he scurried about. So thankful in these moments for the choice I made to move to this beautiful state and the ability to watch wildlife doing their thing without paying you any mind. I sat my camera down to take it all in and Mr. Fox eventually slank away into the dark night.
