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: Denver Desserts

Sometimes, you gotta eat dessert first. And when those days come (or when you're hankering for something sweet at any time), Denver and Aurora have you covered. Sugar Bakeshop: Bakery off of Broadway near downtown. They have the best smore's cookie I have ever tasted. It's one of my all time favorite cookies and I…

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…

What I like Wednesday: Elvis Cinemas

The colder, snowier months of Colorado can be a slight drag for me as I feel my best in the warmth and sun but I don't like to waste the winter months away so I try to think of things to do that I can enjoy. Pre-covid, movie theaters were a great option. Escape both…

What I like Wednesday: Denver & Arapahoe Public Libraries

As I write this, I continue to check the weather forecast to try to guess how much snow Denver is going to get this weekend and I reminisce of another March a few years ago now where I went to a Denver library (Schlessman to be specific) to cross stitch. The library had taught me…

What I like Wednesday: Game Time

Denver and the surrounding area is privileged to house a variety of companies that offer board games or arcade games to play. Playing games stretches your mind and gives you the opportunity to create bonds with friends and strangers alike so who doesn't want to visit the below places? Plus, they usually offer food and…

What I like Wednesday – Colorado’s Warm Winter Days

Sometimes the aspects of Colorado that I like aren't as tangible as eating a slice of pizza or visiting a museum. Sometimes, they are the small moments or the singular days that I experience throughout the year. Today, I'm referring to those warm days in February and March. The days that fall between 60 to…

What I like Wednesday – Pizza

Everyone likes pizza. I used to hear that phrase and feel annoyed because I didn't really like pizza. I generally don't like tomatoes or tomato based foods and many pizzas I encountered had too much tomato sauce for my liking. But then, a while back, my ex and I did a pizza day where we…

What I like Wednesday: Denver Museum of Nature and Science

You can't come to Denver without going to the Museum of Nature and Science. I've written about this place multiple times but after rereading those posts I still feel like I didn't do this museum justice. Similar to the Botanic Gardens, I feel like there is always something new to learn at this museum. If…

What I like Wednesday: Organizations Doing Good

There is a lot of good happening in Denver, and Colorado in general, and I wanted to share two companies that I like. Scraps: This is the company that runs the composting program I pay for. If you're lucky, they have routes where they'll pick up your compost on a weekly basis. I am not…
