We watched the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center being built. It was huge, gigantic, really, really big. Then it opened and I saw pictures of people enjoying offerings there, especially the lazy river in the summer and holiday programming. This past weekend, we finally had an opportunity to experience the Gaylord ourselves. From the expansive entry to the wide halls, multiple restaurants, and pool complex, the photos I’d seen

And we’ve watched a lot of good skiers lately, on the televised Olympics in 2022. The way they seem to fly down a mountain barely touching the snow – it’s exhilarating. Now combine those things.

“What the world needs now is love, sweet love.” -Hal David, 1965 After the last couple of years, we could use a festival dedicated to love. That’s what the Sweetheart Festival is all about. I am excited about the event. Not only is it here in my town of Loveland, but it’s also something for me to anxiously anticipate, and I love anticipation. Love is defined as “an intense feeling

I usually write a HeidiTown year-in-review type of post. Twice I have started and stopped writing one for 2021. Let’s face it, 2021 was not what it was cracked up to be.
