As a kid, my family always took our summer vacations out west into the mountains. We would drive all the way from the St. Louis area. When we FINALLY arrived we would find a stream, pull over on the side of the road and go put our feet in. I’ve been hooked to going there ever since.
When Trey and I first started dating we went on a little trip to Colorado. We drove up into the mountains from Denver, and just got to know each other and listened to music. I knew he was a keeper after the trip. It’s our “happy place.” Breathing in the mountain air takes out the stress in life.
I was SO excited to be able to take Georgie there for the weekend. Trey was gone with one of his artists’ album release the prior week, so I flew alone with G and met him at the Denver airport. (Blog post soon coming about flying alone with a baby. It can be overwhelming, but after 7 flights with G, I have learned some tricks of the trade.)
After a delayed flight and lots of airport waiting, we finally reunited with Trey and headed straight to a show. It was G’s first true concert, and where better to see it than Red Rocks?! It is such a beautiful venue. We had a great night, catching up with the Blackberry Smoke boys and them meeting the little guy.
The next day we took off into Breckenridge. Something about that mountain air must have put the baby to sleep. He slept for 5 hours that day! We walked around Breckenridge and checked out the cute little shops, got some lunch, and drank some local brew beers. It was also about 30 degrees cooler than Nashville. Perfection.
Since we both have family in Denver, we went to dinners and brunches with them. If you are heading to Denver soon then I HIGHLY recommend staying JW Marriott Cherry Creek. They were extremely accomodating of G. The hotel is nestled in between the best shops in Denver and within walking distance of great coffee shops and restaurants. We met Trey’s aunt and uncle for dinner at True Food Kitchen. It’s a great eco-chic healthy restaurant. Get the edamame dumplings (you can thank me after.)
The next morning we met my cousin and his wife for brunch at Lola’s. It was so fun catching up with them over Mexican mimosas, chorizo gravy biscuits and the best table side guac I’ve ever had. (I consider myself a guac connoisseur.)
I can’t wait to go back!
