Slowly, but surely, it’s starting to feel like summer is upon us in the Centennial State. Thankfully, right in time for Memorial Day weekend! What fun trips do you have in the works this summer?

I’m starting to map out mine, which had me searching for functional and stylish travel bags. I came across Boarding Pass NYC, and this Cherry Blossom Lifestyle Carryall had my name written all over it! Not only does the new line come in three beautiful shades, but it’s entirely waterproof and stain resistant. Perfect bag for the gym, as a carry on, or an overnight weekend adventure.

They have quite the variety of travel accessories (tempted to hit buy on the Charcoal Voyager Waxed Weekender), and it’s definitely worth perusing all their offerings. With Father’s Day right around the corner, one of their goods might strike your fancy as a great gift for your on-the-go dad.

Hi friends, happy Friday! Hope you all have some fun weekend plans in the works. It’s supposed to be in the 70s here in Denver (finally!) so I’m looking forward to soaking that up.

I was going through my hard drive the other day, and came across these Airstream photos. My dear friend Koko owned it when she lived in Asheville and was studying at Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts. I was living in Nashville at the time, so I would frequently go and visit her. She now lives in Grand Junction, so luckily, we’re still able to see each other often. The Western Slope is absolutely stunning! I’ll share some photos the next time I’m there.

I’ve recently become quite smitten with yellow (some say it’s the new millennial pink, ha!), but whenever I see this shade, I’m just drawn to it. That yellow on the seat cushions is so beautiful against the creamy white interior. And her cat Slim compliments it all pretty well, too 😉 She has since sold this beauty mobile, but I hear it’s traveling along the Oregon Coast which seems fitting.

Ah, what an adventure.

Have a great weekend!

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!

As you enter the Nash Stream region, there’s a dirt road that pierces through the deepest of forests into a town of zero population: Odell, NH. Situated in the Great North Woods and nestled in between two peaks, is a family cabin nicknamed 14 ½ (the exact mileage from downtown Groveton). It’s been around since 1945 and was built by my grandfather Granville, and his two brothers Bill and John Jewell. My grandfather and his brothers have long passed away, but they left ownership options to my dad and some uncles.

When you hike up to this neck of the woods (fair warning, it’s not an easy process getting to this camp), you trade in the luxury of electricity and running water for the freshest mountain air and most beautiful sights. Start your day off with boiling water for coffee and cooking breakfast on the six-burner gas stove. Then brush your teeth on the dock and cast out your fishing line. Come night, climb up the ladder to the loft in the pitch dark for a deep sleep. While lying there, you can listen to the pine trees brushing against each other in the wind that will lull you to sleep. Staying here in the winter? Let’s just say this place is a whole different story.

To me, this small New Hampshire area is not only visually stunning and full of seasonal opportunities, but it’s also packed with family memorabilia and lifelong memories.
