Inhale. Exhale.

I'm still regrouping after what I'm calling my End of Summer Retreat in Boulder. I've had a wonderful summer but it sure was BUSY and I seemed to be on the road more than ever...whether it was with my boys traveling lacrosse teams or inspirational events fueling GetMarried! Good stuff all around but was looking forward to a complete change of pace and scenery.

My perpertual bucket list has included climbing a 14er. And I think everyone was getting a little tired of me talking about it so I finally bought the flight, recruited a friend to join me and headed west to Colorado to check this adventure off my list!

The extended weekend turned out to be INCREDIBLE. First of all, I {heart} Boulder. I'm completely spoiled with my brother and his family living there because they are some of my most favorite people...so smart, so resourceful, so fun and so real. Love them to pieces and wish they lived closer!

Needing a few days to get acclimated to the change in altitude before THE CLIMB, we found some wonderful things to explore and inspire us...and all are highly recommended to anyone going to Boulder.

A few gems on my list...Pearl Street Mall, Mountain Sun Brewery (beer and fries to die for!), the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse (the most beautiful and de-lish teas and hummus)...

The historical Colorado Chautauqua (adorable cottages, beautiful backdrop of the Flatirons, Music Festivals and the coziest Dining Hall with a killer breakfast!)...

A hike to Lost Lake...

Even a little needle felting lesson from my sister-in-law over wine...we actually made Juno-approved felted critters!?!

We also ventured out on a Bike to Farm Dinner to The 63rd Street Farm coordinated by AWE-STRUCK Outdoors. FANTASTIC! The perfect way to support the local food revolution that is so strong in Boulder. Beautiful setting, beautiful food and beauitful company...and such an appreciation for the local organic farmer (and a good bike seat!)

And to think we covered all of this ground in preparation of THE CLIMB?!?! 

I'll be posting about our climb to the summit tomorrow! Hint: We made it and it was worth every step! Yippee!

Cheers!
