Denver Microbrew Tour

Part of the reason I went to Denver with Kahler was to celebrate his birthday.
One thing we love is travel and getting to experience new places and things together, so fun.

Kahler's a bit of a beer snob and Denver has been referred to as the "Napa Valley of beer"... so, the Denver Microbrew Tour was a no-brainer birthday surprise.

The tour lasted several hours and took us to 3 different microbreweries (Wynkoop, Breckenridge, and Rock Bottom) and a tap house (Falling Rocks) in downtown Denver.  We walked from place to place and the PERFECT weather only made it better.  

We learned all the quirky things about the different places we stopped and got to sample several beers at every location- so fun experiencing Denver this way!

The group we toured with was great- not too big, not too small, people from all over the country.  Our guide was great too.

Like the rest of our trip, SUCH a great time.
We'd definitely recommend Denver Microbrew Tour!

day 14

Happy notes from my week... 

putting chores on hold to create together. 

the guts and grace to make DREAMS reality. 

ice cream, straight out of the carton. 

Being known

lazy evenings on the couch watching college basketball. 

getting to celebrate LIFE with friends who are more like family. 
{happy birthday, Caleb!}

day 5

This week has been ugly- nothing major or dramatic, I've just been "off" and can seem to find my groove. 
I've cried. I've fought. I've withdrawn. 
Yesterday I waived my white flag of surrender. 
{God was way ahead of me though- "His mercies are new every morning". Good day or bad, He makes every day new.}

So here I am. Reminding myself, letting God remind me, that I don't have to ask for a "do-over" to be free from yesterday's shortcomings. He gives that mercy freely. 

Currently soaking it all in...

Slow weekends
Good coffee

The grace to move forward in freedom when you want hang on every painful thing of the past

40 days: day 1

I've never "celebrated" Lent.
growing up, it was the time of year that some of my friends had to stop drinking sodas and eating dessert… and that wasn't for me. :)

this year I'm changing that.
{but not in terms of chocolate…}
I've started this study and would love for you to join me.
I'm going back to my New Year's "resolution"
and focusing on there here-and-now,
the amazing things God has put in my path.
I'm going to be intentional about writing those things down-
wherever- here, in my planner, on a post-it note at work…
because when we pause and acknowledge the good things in life,
we can't help but give thanks.

I'm focusing on happy.
enjoying every minute.

today's happy...

a job that is teaching me and stretching me. {whew, it's streching me!}
a husband who is withoutadoubt my biggest fan and best friend.

and this furry babe.  i can't even begin.

Red Rocks

We spent most of our time in Denver exploring everything within walking distance of our hotel.  You know us though, and you know we can't be in the middle of all this creation goodness and not get out and soak some of it in!

So we rented a car and drove to Red Rocks- just outside of Denver, and easy to get to (if Siri doesn't lead you astray…).  Y'all, this place was breathtaking.  

We were with other people, so we didn't spend a ton of time there and would have loved to spend hours longer hiking around.  It's the perfect little trip out of town if you're like we were and don't have a lot of time.
