Ok, so if you don't follow me on Instagram (rude) you probably have no idea that I spent Thursday through Sunday gallivanting through (and falling in love with) the beautiful State of Colorado. Quite honestly, I had no idea what to expect upon my arrival, mostly because the only things that come to mind when I think "Colorado" are freezing temperatures, mountains, and people who like to get... er... happy. Quickly I came to find that there was a lot to love about the good ol' colorful state, especially the city of Denver. (Close second goes to Golden... because howdy folks)
Sami's Shenanigans and she is quite possibly one of the best gems I could have ever found through this blog.
After a nice, long, delicious lunch, accompanied by some really great craft beers, we did a little bit of exploring around the area of downtown we were in and then headed back to bear's apartment so I could get out of my gross feeling travel attire and also so I could get some work done for my boss (insert angry grumble-grunt sound here).
Also note that Colorado rain is, in fact, A LOT colder than our luke warm rain here in Florida.
On Sunday I managed to contain my tears through brunch with bear and his roommate and for a good damn reason because when I ordered a $5 mimosa I was served this bad boy and I knew Denver was really trying to make me feel better about having to leave later in the day.
Pretty much the rest of my Sunday in Denver was spent sobbing on bear's shoulder like the ginormous baby that I am, and also a little more day drinking because if I was going to have to be sad and on an airplane I wasn't going to do it without some bubbles in my belly.
Overall, it was truly a wonderful trip and I'm so happy I got to see a different side of the country, for a change. Also I'm in love with mountains and I'm pretty sure if Sami had to hear me talking about them for much longer she was going to rip my vocal chords out. And I wont even go into how many pictures of mountains that now reside on my phone. Sorry I'm not sorry, those things are ginormous and awesome and glorious.
Until next time, Denver. You were truly magical!
