Scarf Yourself DIY!

No secret… I like scarves. From silky and colorful to bulky and monochromatic, I have them all. They can easily dress up a simple outfit or give you an pop of color. They keep you warm on a cold day. The greatest thing is that there are not rules to scarves. Including making your own! Here’s a little Scarf DIY idea you can easily do.

We enjoyed relaxing and especially loved hiking around this magical place.

West Fork trail

One of our hike destinations was the West Fork Trail. The trail is about 3 miles long with lush green vegetation, the West Fork Creek, and magnificent red sandstone cliffs that repeatedly left us in awe. It will take you several hours to hike the entire distance since the round trip is about 6 miles long. Continue reading
