So. Now that my wrist is in a brace rather than a cast and Katie (my roomie) is on the brink of a full mono recovery, we are really starting to take advantage of Denver living (on the cheap). Since last week we’ve gone to Boulder, did a little downtown bar hopping, won the lottery tickets to see Book of Mormon (front row for $25 and omg, so funny!), and went to a Rockies game ($4 Rockpile tickets). In between all of the activities, I’ve been applying to jobs, going for runs around Wash Park trying to acclimate to the altitude, and meeting new friends. Most of these things are fun.

On Sunday Katie and I walked through the Denver Botanic Gardens. It was a beautiful day to go walk through the gardens and see all the beautiful flower, lily pads, and exhibits.

Last Saturday a couple of friends and I went to the Brandi Carlile concert at Red Rocks. It was amazing, so incredibly amazing. Brandi is phenomenal and the Red Rocks venue is just the coolest thing. I’d go back there for another concert (or a workout!) in a heartbeat. These things are pretty amazing too:…

Sea Salt Brownies

I am excited about these sea salt brownies for many, many reasons. First of all, these are brownies. I realize there is no need for reasons beyond that, but I have some extra to share. Another reason is the sea salt. Sea salt and chocolate just belong together. Then there is the fact that I…

Hi! A LOT of things have happened since last week… I packed up my Minneapolis life in a U-Haul, road tripped to Denver with my mom, moved into a garden level Washington Park duplex with one of my best friends, and broke my wrist. Life is very different than it was one week ago today,…
