Weekend Recap: Packed with Plans

Recap of January 11 and 12 This weekend was pretty busy – but all good things! And I was thrilled to get in a mix of both mountain and Front Range activities. When I left my downtown office on Friday, I walked out into a blur of snowflakes – the perfect setup for the night I had ahead. My friend Chris and I were going to a screening of a Warren Miller ski film at Stoney’s, a gigantic sports bar {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Full Weekend in the Mountains

Recap of January 4 and 5 My weekend started off busy on the Front Range, as I hosted the First Friday coffee chat with residents of my town, and then moved on to a ton of work for my regular job. But after stopping by a sick friend’s house to drop off a pot of this lemon rice and chicken soup (soooo amazing! Can’t recommend this recipe enough as comfort food that still really healthy), I headed out to Minturn {Read More}

What I Read in December 2018

In 2018, I had my lightest reading year since I started tracking my books in Goodreads in 2010. But it was a busy year, with my promotion, election campaign, and numerous personal endeavors! I read 3.5 books in December to close out the year with 64 books read. That’s still more than one a week, so not too bad even if it’s not my usual 100. However, I am redoubling my efforts for 2019, and am committing to read (a {Read More}

Gym Review: Chuze Fitness

We’re already one week into the New Year – how are your resolutions going? I made a few, though am still adding more. (And I will hopefully do a post on these soon.) I always love New Year’s because it means a fresh start and a time when I’m reminded to reflect on what I may want to change in my life. But I also know that January 1 is just an arbitrary day, so this year, I’m lightening up {Read More}

Holiday Shutdown: Vacation Recap

My firm always shuts down for the week between Christmas and New Year’s, so rather than two weekend recaps, I’ll recap the full holiday break. It was lazy and wonderful! Christmas vacation partially kicked off on Thursday, December 20th, with my mom’s arrival at Denver Airport. She was here to stay for ten days, and I was excited! I usually spend Thanksgiving in Colorado and Christmas in New York, but this year I reversed that pattern. When my mom arrived, {Read More}
