They say New York is the city to fall in love in. I say it’s Denver. Who wouldn’t trade the concrete jungle, pretzel cart corners, late night Chinese and Wall Street bustle for the serenity of Colorado? When the sun sets over the dramatic mountainous skies, you just have to wonder–could there be a better setting against which our Denver skyline boasts it’s silhouette?
So it’s the month of love and there is no better reason to get lost in the city we call home. Lost in the sweet treats, patio fires, snowflakes and artistic adventures. Lost in the present, as though we just can’t get enough; because we can’t.
