Morning my friends, thought I’d drop in to give you a little glimpse into my life lately…

01 Before the cold front that dropped in last week, the weather around here has been gorgeous. It was sunny, cool, and perfect for bike rides. So for the first time in a while I got back on my bike and took a short 10-mile ride around town. I threw on my new favorite podcast, Serial, and listened to a few episodes during the ride. I realized how much I missed all the training I was doing for my triathlon last year, and promptly ran home to stock up on warm workout clothing for the winter. Don’t call it a comeback…?

02 Rus has been gone for most of October doing what he loves the most, hunting. We’re a bit of an odd couple, and that’s the way we like it. So while he’s been doing man-things, I’ve been spending a lot more time with my girls. Lunches at The Source. Drinks at Crooked Stave. And happy hours here or there. Some friends and I even got all dressed up for Halloween and went on some brewery tours in Fort Collins. We had a blast! I’ve been giving myself a lot more permission to get out there and stop working so much. We all need balance in life, and it’s something I’ve been working harder at.

03 My amazingly talented friend Rachel is rocking her new gig, the design manager at the MCA of Denver. They had a huge art exhibition opening for Mark Motherbaugh, called Myopia, and I was able to attend the strange and amazing show. She was kind enough to invite me and I brought along a new Denver arrival, Cassie from The Veda House. I’ve had a lot of fun showing Cassie around Denver and seeing her view of my hometown. I feel like a fish in water since I grew up here, so I can’t always see it from the outside. Denver’s really exploding right now and going through a renaissance culturally. New restaurants, shops, breweries, and small businesses are opening everyday and it’s been really exciting to see old neighborhoods really evolve.

That’s it for now. If you’d like to see more of my life as it happens, follow me on Instagram @observantnomad

I love it! I have family in Denver and visit every couple years but I really need to get back out and explore. Plus I need some Chubby’s O.O
