This weekend in Colorado was a whirlwind!
I landed around 10 a.m. on Friday and I left around Noon on Sunday. Talk about a quick, quick, quick trip! Even though my time in Colorado Springs & the Denver area was extremely short, it was also extremely sweet.
Let’s dive in to this weekend’s highlights:
- McKae & Creed’s wedding in CO Springs— the biggest highlight of the weekend, and also the reason I came into town, was my sweet friend McKae’s wedding. McKae and I have only known each other about a year, since we met working at the climbing gym, but she is truly the kindest and truest friend. Hers & Creed’s wedding was veryyy cold, but also very beautiful, romantic, and whimsical.
- Brunch at Western Omelet– The morning after the wedding, the Summit gym gang was starving. We ate some really huge portioned breakfasts at this restaurant that had the best service (the owner was quite attentive) and delicious food. I had the Southern Scramble, which is basically their version of the migas. I’m a creature of habit, what can I say?
- Coffee at Switchback– After our brunch, a couple of the gal pals and I camped out at Switchback to get some ish done. There was a long line out the door (thanks, COVID), but I can see why! The space was beautiful and light and airy, filled with greenery and plants galore, and the service was ever-so-kind. 10/10 recommend!
- Coffee at Morrison Joe– Coffee again (duh). This time in Morrison, my sweet Chinese sister Beth and I each enjoyed a matcha tea & almond milk latte respectively. This little shop is tiny, tiny, tiny, but rests in the heart of Morrison. A great spot with great views!
- Walking around downtown in Golden– Golden is the cutest little town. Beth and I meandered along downtown Golden, window shopping, popping in and out of local shops and smelling the restaurants’ aromas as we walked by. The weather was perfect and the night was delightful.
- Ramen at Menya in Belmar– As a ramen addict, I had to introduce Beth to one of my all-time favorite dishes. Beth had the tempura udon ramen, and I had chashu with some chili sauce. Served quickly, served hot, and devoured within a matter of minutes.
- Coffee at Corvus in Littleton– our last hoorah, Beth and I grabbed coffee as I was headed on my way to the airport. I had been to Corvus in Denver, but I think I prefer this Littleton space. I had a brioche & egg bun and oat milk latte. Definitely the shortest meal of the trip, but still absolutely delicious!
My time in Colorado is never enough.
I really fall more in love with Colorado/Denver every single time I visit. This was my fourth time coming to Denver in three years, and every time I come it’s like seeing an old friend. This was my first trip to Colorado Springs and I fell in love with that little town, too. The mountains, the crisp air, the hip folks, I can never get enough!
