Some snaps of spring blooms on the trees in my neighborhood. Making an effort to stop and appreciate the small details, especially today, on Earth Day! What are small, everyday tidbits that pique your curiosity?

Hope you all have a beautiful week.

Oh, beautiful Union Station! Located in the heart of downtown Denver, the stunningly restored Union Station is a destination in and of itself. Built more than 150 years ago, it wasn’t until 2012 that a collaborative development alliance sealed the deal on a multimillion-dollar renovation plan. The result, unveiled in July 2014, is a vibrant gathering place bursting with history as well as promise.

At Union Station’s center is the Great Hall, a sweeping room full of elegance and nostalgia. Glistening chandeliers and ornate, white molding emphasize the soaring, 65-foot ceilings, and enormous, arched windows flood the room with sunlight.

Above is just a small glimpse of its offerings, but here’s all what the historic building holds within:

Terminal Bar, the restored old ticket station that is now devoted to dispensing distilled-in-Colorado spirits and regional draft beers. Looking to shop? Lovely boutiques with artsy gifts and local crafts like Bloom and 5 Green Boxes; and a miniature version of Denver’s most beloved bookstore, The Tattered Cover are for you. Get your locally roasted caffeine fix at Pigtrain Coffee; or arrive early to beat the crowd at Snooze for a hearty breakfast. For lunch and dinner, Mercantile churns out some of the tastiest food I’ve ever had, while Acme has down-to-earth on the go items. Meanwhile, Stoic & Genuine has fresh oysters, classic lobster rolls and crispy whole haddock; and modern neighborhood bistro Next Door American Eatery has dishes made with ingredients that are 100 percent sourced from American farmers. Indulge your sweet tooth afterwards at Milkbox Ice Creamery, and top it off with a refreshing drink (while taking in the view from the top) at the Cooper Lounge. Stay the night at the dazzling Crawford Hotel, whose luxurious rooms give a nod to Pullman-era train travel.

Travel on your agenda? This is a train station after all! Hop on the Amtrak and choose a destination that takes you through the mountain ranges, while you relax and take in the wildlife sightings and snow-capped peaks. Or, if you’re here during ski season, take the train up to Winter Park and hit the slopes for the day all while avoiding I-70 traffic.

Catch ya on the street next time!

The color, the architecture! This, my friends, is Baker Neighborhood. Catty-corner to Wash Park and Lincoln Park, Baker has a robust historic and colorful offering that includes a Collegiate Gothic school, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired library and quirky Arts and Crafts Bungalows. The structures were built in the Queen Anne Style and are prime examples of Victorian Architecture.

It’s also proximity to Broadway’s Main Street, which offers diverse shopping, dining and entertainment options. Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area! I was so inspired by all the color and design.

Instead of giving into my urges to stay inside bundled up on the couch watching movies (it was a cold, damp day yesterday) I drove over to Green Hills to check out the much anticipated West Elm Nashville + Etsy: We Love Handmade Art event, which was curated and co-hosted by my friend Elise Yetton of Pennyweight. Elise has impeccable taste and it certainly showed through the work of the hand selected Tennessee Etsy sellers. I took a few photos of the items that caught my eye but check out all their shops for a little Sunday splurge.

nD Festival

I had the honor of being asked to shoot the Belcourt Theatre’s nD Festival fashion show that took place last night. Jamie and the Jones, Bodkin and Steven Alan unveiled their fall collections, each of which was introduced by a beautiful short film ( Kristin Barlowe for Jamie and the Jones, David McClister for Bodkin, James Clauer for Steven Alan) setting the tone right before the catwalk. Nikki Lane, Gabriel Kelley and Holly Williams also provided lovely acoustic mini-sets in between the shows.

While the national spotlight is becoming more and more focused on Nashville, the quality of work being showcased here will blow any expectations or preconceived notions out of the water when it comes to what this town has to offer.  From the items donated for the silent auction to the local artists who were asked to participate I was more than impressed with the results.
