Romantic Getaway at “Collective Retreats” in Colorado

jessica | March 28, 2017


Jep and I never went on a honeymoon anywhere…So, for our 15 year anniversary we wanted to make it a special one.  After researching and finding some pretty cool places we decided to go to Vail and stay at Collective Retreats, and let me tell you it was magical! We had the best time! It was so beautiful!!!! The mountains in the distance, the peaceful serene atmosphere, deer grazing in the early mornings, drinking coffee with my man and just spending time talking, the amazing food cooked by our awesome chef, and fly fishing which I was NOT so good at, but of course Jep was! I am already looking forward to our next visit this year.  I’m actually planning a couples trip this time!!!


This room is truly amazing! From our little potbelly stove that kept us warm at night, to the cozy bed centered in the room. The rooms come with a coffee pot station directly behind the bed too, so you don’t even have to get out of your pjs to have a good ole cup of Joe.




Just enjoying a little sunshine and reading about some of my favorite Texas gals!


Don’t mind this fine fella…He’s just too adorable!


So, as you can tell we went in the late fall, which I loved!!!! Jep loves a good photobomb. wink wink!


Every meal we ate was seriously amazing!


Romantic dinner and a good glass of wine.


Each tent comes with your very own teepee bathroom,  shower and all!


Enjoying the beautiful scenery, while my man is fly fishing.






I want one of these at my house! Loved my little potbelly stove…

    About Me

    About Me
    Hello! My name is Jessica Robertson and I’m married to the youngest Robertson, Jules Jeptha, and yes I love the BEARD!

    I am so glad you could join me on this endeavor of life without the cameras. I hope this lifestyle blog will encourage you, inspire you, and down right draw us closer together.

    Life is short, so let’s encourage and lift each other up. I’m passionate about life and believe The Cure is LOVE! Doesn’t matter where you come from or how old you are, we are all in this together and we can learn from one another.

    I know that without my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I’d be lost. And I live with the peace that Christ died for my sins and rose from the grave and now isn in Heaven preparing a place for me, that’s what my hope is in, that one day I will live for ETERNITY in HEAVEN with my GOD.

    I’m a blessed mama of four. I’m a lover of all things vintage. I’m an oldie at heart. I may have been born in the wrong century. I cry when anyone else cries, which my kids make fun of. I want to be a farmer when I grow up. And last but not least, I LOVE my mate!

    Hope you can join me on this journey of life, cooking, gardening/living off the land, fashion/beauty, sewing/creating, Holiday’s, and more.

    Lets learn together!
