What I like Wednesday: Goldsmith Vet and VRCC Animal Hospital

Pippin has been having stomach issues for the past two plus weeks which has resulted in me taking him to both my vet and to an animal hospital. It's been extremely stressful, scary, and overwhelming. Last week and weekend was absolutely insane and emotionally draining, but Pippin is home now and that in itself is…

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: Local Bookstores

Full disclaimer: I don't buy physical books very often these days so my experience with bookstores is limited. Generally, my go to is to check out an ebook from the library, but local bookstores still have their place and I can still appreciate and endorse them so here I am with this post. While I…

What I like Wednesday: Rockies’ Fireworks Show

Everyone needs to experience the Rockies' Fourth of July fireworks show at least once in their lives. Baseball is America's past time, right? So it stands to reason that there's no better way to celebrate the 4th of July than by watching a home baseball game with your friends, eating some classic fare like hot…

What I like Wednesday: Food Events

We all gotta eat. So why not pay a lot of money and then proceed to stuff yourself for the next two hours? Have I hooked you yet? I realize that's perhaps not the most appealing way I could have introduced the variety of food events and festivals that Denver offers throughout the year. But,…

What I like Wednesday: Getting Crafty in Denver

Denver likes its crafters just as much as its geeks - and I'm not talking about the craft beer enthusiasts. Although, Denver loves those people too, I just can't speak on that. Wait! Yes I can! Grandma's House has the perfect for some combination of cross stitching and beer every Sunday afternoon. They call it…

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…

What I like Wednesday: Colorado’s Free Tours

A handful of companies and organizations around Colorado offer free tours of their facilities and I love it. As we all know, spending time in and around Denver can get expensive between the restaurants, the movies (minus Elvis Theaters and Century Aurora!), the concerts and events. So it's nice to put away your credit card…

What I like Wednesday: Denver’s Vegan Restaurants

I am very grateful that there are a handful of restaurants that are vegan or vegan friendly in and around Denver. Below are my favorite restaurants where I know I will always be able to find something I like. Watercourse: Delicious "chicken" sandwich. Couldn't ask for better (and thank you to the waiter who told…

What I like Wednesday: Denver’s Interactive Options

Denver does such a great job of providing unique interactive opportunities that I wanted to list a few here for this week's post. My friend, Kayla, discovered the Lost Book of Astrid Lee in September 2020 that the History of Colorado Museum put together. And while she was in Oregon and wasn't able to participate,…
