Show of the Moment: New Series Coming Soon

Look, I love TV. I get how bad that sounds. As a millennial that worries about kids spending too much time with their faces in technology, I get it. I really do—however, I grew up playing outside and reading in my spare time and interacting with others and, yes, also making time for television. I…

Weekender Photo Spree: Local Fall Colors

I live for fall colors. While autumn often comes with its own set of baggage and emotions, it also brings a full force of beauty. Colorado's high-altitude leaves never disappoint. My husband and I have made it our mission to experience as much fall color as possible; this season is short-lived in the mountains. They…

Hot Springs Series: Sand Dunes Swimming Pool, a desert oasis

Colorado's Great Sand Dunes are a wonder to behold. Literal mountains of sand—always shifting, morphing, and glowing against a scenic mountain backdrop—exist, a little out of place.

We all—my roommates, friends, and then-boyfriend (now husband) made it through a particularly tough term, and deserved a chance to celebrate. It was pretty Christmas-y, with tinsel and holly decorations, a themed cocktail menu, and…

Hot Springs Series: Old Town Hot Springs Brings the Fun

Water has a way of bringing us together. My husband put it simply last weekend, when we spied children donning swimsuits and floaties and contagious smiles. "Man," I said, "kids really love the water." "We all do," he replied. "You can do things in the water that you can't anywhere else. It's like living a…
