What I like Wednesday: Colorado Birds

Ptarmigan Birds. They're a part of our every day life. They greet us in the morning with their cute little chirps (or maybe their annoying, never ending cries). They fly above us and we search the trees to spot them or their nests and those precious eggs. Sometimes they poop on us. Birds are these…

What I like Wednesday: Sloan’s Lake

Shari and I walked around Sloan's Lake for the first time this past weekend. I've lived here for 9 years and had never been. I've driven by it, sure, but for some reason I had never taken the time to specifically visit and walk the park. I had been missing out. A 2.5 mile sidewalk…

6-13-21 Mountains, pool, friends, movie

Summer is in full swing here in Colorado. The gloomy days have finally passed, I think, which makes me feel both happy and sad. Happy because it means more sun and heat and those lovely puffy white clouds I adore. But also sad because it means hot nights and the apartment's AC is old and…

We have so many, and they're all pretty great, that I enjoy making my way around a handful of them. Today I want to highlight my favorite Denver parks: Washington Park:…

4-11-21 Celebrations, Gardens, and Jam

In honor of Shari and I dating for 6 months, we ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the park on Thursday. I told Shari I would celebrate 6 months and then year marks after that. So we made ourselves some sandwiches and brought out some tasty onion chips and chopped strawberries and sat at…

What I like Wednesday: Garden of the Gods

It's time I spotlight something a bit farther outside Denver than I've yet to do. There are places outside of the Denver area and its surrounding cities that deserve highlights too. There are places like Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs - a free park featuring beautiful red rocks and hiking trails. You can…

What I like Wednesday: Nick’s Garden Center

Spring is in the air (maybe) and for many people that means it's time to start planning out your flower beds! The thought of plants showing off their shades of green and flowers displaying their magnificent petals makes me feel so excited. I love planning out what plants I want to plant where. When I…
