Going Green

“The earth laughs in flowers” – Ralph Waldo Emerson Arranging flowers has always brought me so much joy. Rather than picking pre-arranged bouquets, I opt for selecting a few different flower bundles to arrange myself and gift. I even decided to make my own wedding bouquet that I truly couldn’t have been happier with. I…

Gracie’s Tax Bar

Last week, we got to try out Gracie’s Tax Bar. Everything from the location to the building to the drinks to the ambiance was amazing. First of all: the location. Gracie’s is in an urban neighborhood off of 7th Avenue, just south of Roosevelt. Being so close to downtown means that it’s also within walking distance…

Pueblo

We started off this weekend the exact same way we did the last: toasted coconut pancakes and cold brew. Afterwards, we quickly got ready and hopped in the car to take advantage of the sunny but slightly overcast lighting. We snapped a few photos, scoped a few new sites, and stopped in at Lola’s for…

Futuro

This past weekend was filled with everything good – time with friends and family, good food and coffee, productivity, and rest. We found ourselves returning to not one but two coffee shops that we hadn’t been to in a while, one of these being Futuro.   With limited art and color on the walls, one’s…

Farmers Market Meals

Few things are better than slow, weekend mornings at home. We enjoy sleeping a little longer, not having to rush to get ready for the day, and cooking breakfast together with music on and sunlight pouring through our windows. Even though we like to take these mornings a little slower, we still manage to do…

Cancer Free

In 2009, I was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood cancer called Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Blue Tumors. The tumors were many and widespread throughout my abdomen, the biggest being the size of a grapefruit. At 19 years young, doctors were giving me less than a 20% chance of survival, and I was even…
