Welcome Goat Patch!

May 29th, 2019

While it would be easy to sit here pushing my way into a clever anecdote about goats, or the idea of goats wearing patches, or goats wearing patches drinking a beer, or a goat wearing patches drinking a beer in a local brewery located off of North Cascade Avenue in Colorado Springs—well, that one got away from me a bit. In all, it would just be easier to let the staff and customers of Goat Patch Brewing Company speak for themselves on this matter, or simply find your way there and see it for yourself. Goat Patch Brewing Company is still a fairly new company located in the Colorado Springs area,... Read More

How to add Hemp to Your Thanksgiving

November 17th, 2018
Hempsgiving

Thanksgiving is next week and there are several of us who will be shopping for foods this weekend, and all next week, leading up to the big day! We all know the classic casseroles, stuffings, and desserts, but have you considered adding hemp foods to your menu? For some, hemp foods can be new to cook with, and there isn’t a lot of direction for how to add hemp to your Thanksgiving, until now! Hemp foods are gaining popularity, and becoming much easier to find in stores. Hempsgiving was recently held in Denver, where every item on the menu featured some sort of hemp. The event was such a success,... Read More

Speak Your Truth – Never Settle, Stay True to Yourself, and Thrive

Happiness versus settling

Since I moved into my Airstream, I hang out daily at Whole Foods (eating the salad bar and borrowing precious Wi-Fi). As a self-proclaimed blogger (I don’t know how many blogs it takes to clearly own that title), I like to spend most of the time writing. I find that it’s ironically easy for me to focus amongst the lunch crowd chaos. Today, I painfully watched a couple with two kids absolutely annihilate one another with their words. In public. And, my heart was so soft to their experience that I literally wanted to cry. The wife is pushing the two kids in one of those car-shaped shopping carts... Read More

Interconnected

Mindful Monday_Interconnected

Take a breath. Exhale. Take an even deeper breath. Exhale. You just connected with every living thing past, present, and still yet to come. The very oxygen each one of us is presently breathing has been in the lungs and blood stream of every living thing that’s spent one second of life here. That same oxygen in your lungs has contributed to the life of every flower that’s ever bloomed, every tree that’s ever sprouted, every bird that’s ever flown, every fish that’s ever swam, every animal that’s ever run, and every human that’s ever entered this world. We’re connected to one another... Read More

Corner Ramen

Corner Ramen

Writer’s block. The struggle is real. My problem this week was deciding which of several cool things to write about. While struggling with this decision, I took a walk and found myself confronted with my favorite restaurant in Denver. When tempted, I usually succumb, and so I went inside and treated myself to some dinner at Corner Ramen with the comfortable companion of a science fiction paperback. As I worked through my drink, it became clear as filtered sake that I needed to write about this Denver treasure. My cozy but unfashionable neighborhood in Denver has had the blessing of being overlooked... Read More

Doctor’s Orders

Doctor's Orders_Take more vacations

Summer is marching on and many families are trying to squeeze in a family trip before school starts. According to experts, parents are better off spending their money on vacations than they are spending it on toys. Why? Family holidays are valued by children, both in the moment and as a memory. It’s all about spending time during which a child’s interests are genuinely taken into account. Travelling with your kids improves their brain development. “[The vacation] environment offers new experiences that are strong in combined social, physical, cognitive, and sensory interaction,”... Read More

Crafties, Crafties, and More Crafties: Meet Your Resident Beer Blogger

May 12th, 2017

Ah, craft beer. It’s as if it flows directly from the glaciers sitting high at the peaks of the Rockies. Well, more appropriately, that would be a Coors reference. And if I’m being totally honest, there’s nothing more delicious than a cold stubby bottle of Banquet on a bluebird day. Oooh, you weren’t expecting that, were you? So, here’s the thing. I don’t like being a beer snob. Alas, the beer world kind of just happened to me. No matter where I found myself in life, I always somehow ended up on one side of the bar or the other. It’s inescapable. A sort of lifeblood. And truly, I... Read More
