We just got back from an awesome trip to Colorado, for our first time at the Firefly Market in Boulder. Firefly wrote the nicest feature about us on their blog too btw, thank you Firefly! My mom traveled from Virginia and helped me at the market, we also spent some time before and after the market on a mother/daughter vacay!

We had the best time meeting folks and spending time in Denver, Boulder, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Fort Collins. I also visited with a dear friend of mine Lori Lou who I hadn't seen in 15 years and met her two teenage sons! We also happened upon Robbie and Tricia Vitrano who are working in Boulder for several months - what a treat!

My mom & I are both beer fans and we found lots of delicious beer made in Colorado, we visited a few breweries in Denver: we loved Renegade, Breckenridge, and Prost.

When we went to Fort Collins, we also popped into rain in FC's pretty downtown. It was wonderful to see Kristin again, she has carried our BirdSoaps since 2011! We also met several people at the Firefly Market who had purchased our Birdies from rain over the years which was so cool. Her shop is beautiful, don't miss it if in Fort Collins.

And, I can't forget to mention two wonderful Museums in Denver! Both are absolutely beautiful, the Denver Art Museum, whose new building is designed by Daniel Liebeskind and the Clyfford Still Museum, whose architect is Brad Cloepfil.

Go to both, they are right next door to one another, you will be inspired. My mom & I especially loved the Women in Abstract Expressionist exhibit at the Denver museum and we loved everything about the Clyfford Still Museum, a wonderfully peaceful spot.
