Happy Sunday, friends! I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend - mine was lovely. Yesterday, we had our annual alumni ski day at Arapahoe Basin. We reserve a spot on the "beach," where people tailgate all day, dancing in neon snowsuits and petting dogs that wander by in search of a hot dog forgotten … Continue reading Leaning Into Life.
Happy Sunday, Friends! Hope you're having a great weekend! Earlier this month, I walked into the grocery store and was greeted by a familiar display: the seasonal aisle in February, overflowing with oversized teddy bears and garish pink balloons. Most people have a complicated relationship with Valentine's Day. Mine began in elementary school when a … Continue reading Share the Love.
Hi friends! We made it through another Monday, which is cause enough for gratitude and celebration. The reward for this, of course, is a new episode of The Bachelor. Yes, friends. I love The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and I've been known to dabble in Bachelor in Paradise. Hate on it if you wish, but … Continue reading Lady Problems.
Happy New Year's Eve, friends! [Ed. note - the writer may have, uh, fallen asleep before midnight and forgotten to finish this post.] Whatever holidays you celebrate (or not - it's a free country), I hope they've been great. I got to spend Christmas "back home again in Indiana," where it was a disorienting and … Continue reading Regroup!
Hi friends! It's obnoxious to complain about how busy you are (David Sedaris has a line about that in one of his books, but I can't place it at the moment), but these last couple of months have been capital C Crazy. Thankfully, I had a family vacation to look forward to. A week on … Continue reading Miscellanea.
Hello, howdy, hola, friends! (It's been so long, I felt like you all deserved a selection of hellos.) At the risk of starting on a note of negativity, the weather in Denver has been ROUGH lately. I shouldn't complain, since we get pretty spoiled out here, but dear lord. I think we're getting all our … Continue reading Work it Out.
Hello, long-lost friends! How've you been? Hope you've all been enjoying the start of spring. I just returned from a glorious wedding weekend in Michigan. My dear friends Kate and Andy were married in a charming town on Lake Michigan, and it was a lovely wedding. Kate is the sweetest woman I know, but she … Continue reading Wedded bliss.
Hi friends! Are you watching the Oscars? I've only seen one of the movies that has anything to do with any awards this year, but I'm still enjoying the spectacle. We've been spoiled by some reeeeal nice winter weather here in Denver, so we paid for it with a blizzard this weekend. At least, I … Continue reading Winning the Weekend.
This past weekend, a bunch of my favorite ladies gathered in the Hudson Valley for our dear friend Kate’s bachelorette party. It was an amazing weekend. There were so many magnums of Cristal poured over so many male strippers’ chests…if by “magnums of Cristal” you mean bottles of pinot noir, and if by “over male strippers’ chests” … Continue reading Bachelorette Bash.
Well, friends, after months of planning and training (and a few anxiety attacks), it finally happened: we ran the Ragnar Relay! Last weekend, 152 teams headed to Copper Mountain to begin our 194-mile journey through the Rockies, bound for Aspen. Our 12-person team, which we named "Real World: Ragnar," was divided into two vans - … Continue reading Real World: Ragnar
