I have a long relationship with Steamboat Springs. In fact, one of my best friends moved there more than a decade ago, so it has always been a place I’ve visited. However, with the craziness of life and HeidiTown, it had been three years since my last visit, so when we finally spent the weekend there in June, we were way overdue. An Outdoor Escape & Taco Celebration I haven’t
I have stayed in four tiny homes and have concluded that I could not permanently live in a tiny house. I am too messy and quite frankly, I like having stuff. As a vacation rental, however, tiny homes are perfect. They more than meet my needs for a weekend getaway and they are ideal for a longer stay.

As many of my social media followers know, Ryan and I recently celebrated 16-years of marriage in Denver this month, however, that was not where we were supposed to be celebrating.

Crested Butte, Colorado is not short on restaurants. In fact, between Crested Butte Mountain Resort and the small Town of Crested Butte, there are around 60 restaurants, so it would be difficult to eat all the things in Crested Butte during one three-night stay, but we tried. It turns out, Crested Butte is a very good food town. Here’s where we ate and what we thought about each and every
New festivals crop up every summer in Colorado and it’s hard to keep track of them all, but I try. Here are five new ones that will appeal to a variety of different tastes.

I’ll be the first to admit that I used this title as click bait. I knew that those of you with favorite taco shops around Colorado were going to click the link, and if you didn’t see your favorite taco listed you would school me on taco greatness.
