November is one of my favorite and least favorite months somehow. The weather was incredibly bearable and even nice during the first half the month and then it changed into bone chilling cold. Wyoming is a state with winters that make you want to stay inside until around June, and with the temperatures only reaching around 15 degrees the last few days, I'm definitely feeling this way. When my seasonal job ended, I took the time to start researching how I can move to another state, which has been stressful but exciting. I also was able to go down to Denver to see my sister for the week of my birthday which was also the week of Thanksgiving. The drive was horrifying and stressful on the snow and ice covered highway to Colorado and I certainly didn't enjoy it. Spending a week with my sister and her roommates was wonderful and I had a joyous time on the days that I got to spend by myself exploring the lovely city which wasn't nearly as cold as at home. There was a couple days that I got to 60 degrees! My birthday was a nice day that I mostly got to wander around in solitude. When everyone in the house got off work, we went to the highlands and had a fancy dinner. I watched the light snow sprinkle on the city from the table which everyone chatted and ate their delicious tapas. It was an alright night, but it was cold and I was tired, but I enjoyed the sight of the city that I got and it was enjoyable spending time with my sister and her friends. The day before, I decided that I wanted a change and cut the majority of my hair off, and I absolutely love it. This Thanksgiving was my first away from home, and it was interesting to be around people who weren't my family. There was pleasant food and company. I'm not sure when I'll get to see my sister again, so it was special to me to get to spend the time that I had with her and I was sad when I had to leave. I'm home now and awaiting another trip, which I will write about next month!
This is a bit late, I'm sorry for that! Well this month was quite a lovely one. Besides the fact that I worked quite often, I got to spend very much time in Denver with my sister and her friends and enjoyed it very much. I stayed for awhile this time. It was nice being around in the fall when the leaves are floating down the street and everyone is just a little more bundled than usual. While I was there, I got to see a band called Sunflower Bean with my sister and friend Tucker. My sister and I walked to the venue, the Gothic Theatre and waited for the show. I got to meet the bass player Julia Cumming and talk to her a bit and the band signed my CD and Tuckers LP for him. It was great! We danced along and then had a fun night of playing guitar afterword. My sister and I spent the week touring coffee shops and going to the record store. There was another concert that I got to go see while visiting and that was Girlpool. I also got to meet Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad, who were very sweet and kind and sold me one of their yellow records. The show was everything that I wanted, packed into the small Lost Lake, we all sang along and felt filled up with music. It was the best and I was so happy that I got to experience their songs live so close to them. Halloween was fun as usual even though I didn't do much this year. My friend Alex and I dressed up and went to see her brothers band play, which was enough for me.

Each month I will be posting a Photo of the Month! Also I'll try to work in any requested posts or things I find interesting to post! Enjoy!
