This weekend while I was waiting for a new tire I found myself with no internet and a laptop. I turned the boring time into an hour to get organized and ended up creating a quick little shopping list template. Wanted to share with anyone who wanted it.
A few weeks ago I met with some of my favorite bloggers here in Denver and it sparked a new idea for me. I am a lover of searching the internet for free and “good” resources for my blog. I am constantly looking for patterns, actions, vectors and fonts. Now I want to share those with you!
Today I am sharing some of the new handwritten fonts that I have stumbled upon. These work great on top of photos for an extra handwritten touch. Also a great alternative for those who wish that had a writing tablet to use with their photos.
All of these are free to download. Just click the name to visit their website.

Colorado is a beautiful state. I love exploring and seeing everything that the state has to offer. As I mentioned in my last post, one of the greatest things about about having out-of-state visitors is showing them around, and reconnecting with your surroundings.
We decided to make sure that we visited the mountains at some point while everyone was out, and I wanted to go to my favorite little mountain town, Breckenridge, CO. It’s a great spot that reminded me of Park City, UT the first time that I visited. It’s also the real location of where Dumb & Dumber was shot when they were in “Aspen.” We had unusually warm weather here in Denver, so I was afraid that the mountains wouldn’t be very snowy. They were though! We rode around in the gondolas, ate hot mini donuts, drank coffee, and walked around the city. It’s the perfect spot really if you want to just get away and see something beautiful and very “Colorado.”
Don’t get me wrong. This is not one of those “I Hate Valentine’s Day” posts…I promise.
Valentine’s Day is coming up. Throughout my life, I have never understood the hullaballoo around making a reservation and celebrating a special day with your sweetheart, when everyone else is doing the same thing. Bryan and I both have done a lot, and not done anything at all for this holiday, and honestly, I am ok with either one. I’m a Libra after all. I’ll admit, it does make me feel special to get a delivery of my favorite flowers in the office. This year though, I want to do something different.
In Alice in Wonderland, they have Unbirthdays, where they celebrate birthdays on days in which it is actually not anyone’s birthday. This year, I want to celebrate the month of February like it is Unvalentine’s Day. I want to feel special every day of the month, and take time to tell Bryan how special he is in my life, and how much I love him. On February 14th, who knows what we will do. I will be fine with staying in, ordering takeout, and watching Battlestar Galactica. I would be fine if I get surprised.
What I will be doing is writing short and long love letters to my love. I will be sending him emails and hand-written notes throughout the month to let him know that I cherish him. I invite you to do the same for the one(s) in your lives. Maybe this is to your family, friends, and yes, sweeties.
Good luck & much love.
Last week we had the privilege of having some of our very dear friends out. I had been looking forward to it for so long. Bryan and I had been compiling lists of things to do, and places to go, and when they finally arrived…we were ready!
It’s nice reconnecting with your city by showing people around. We revisited some of our favorite spots: City O’ City, Crema, Baker, and of course Our Mutual Friend. On Friday we decided to go to one of my favorite museums in town, the Denver Nature and Science Museum. What I love most about it is that it has everything: space, animals, dinosaurs, mummies…everything! I could spend hours there, and we typically do. I have never been with children, but I’m sure my parent friends would also agree that it’s a great time.
The museum is located in City Park and is close to so much. It’s easy to make a day trip out of a picnic in the park, and a visit to either the museum or zoo (also located in the park). I recommend at least walking once around the lake before you go in. It’s just such a nice view of the city!
If you’re visiting Denver, it’s worth a trip. If you live here, pay it a visit!
