Monday afternoon I was dealing with elevation hangover but I ventured out to Denver Biscuit co., and holy amazeballs were they good. The service was incredible and the bartenders were absolute dolls and I loved the atmosphere that they had going on. I got to sit at the bar top that was placed on top of the back part of the bar. My seat looked over the whole space and I got to enjoy it in its entirety. My favorite part of the whole experience was that they had tons of Veggie friendly options. I ended up getting a veggie pot pie biscuit paired with one of the best Bloody Mary's ever.
Tuesday I decided to go into Boulder and visit Pearl Street Mall, another favorite spot of mine. I felt much better and was amped and ready to go as soon as I woke up. As I inched closer to my destination I saw the snow capped peaks revealing themselves on the horizon. I screamed out loud with pure joy. I'm sure the neighboring cars found me highly entertaining. I spent a few hours exploring, shopping, and finding cool new spots. I stopped and had another amazing lunch at Pasta Jays. Sat outside (under heaters) and ate Ravioli while over looking Pearl Street and the Rockies behind in the background. I ended the day with getting an epic pair of winter boots at a thrift store and I haven't worn anything else since.
Yesterday I finally was able to see my friends that live about an hour from where I'm staying. They had been snowed in (they live in the mountains) since Sunday night. This was my first time driving (me behind the wheel) up into the mountains. The drive out was filled with incredible sights and unbelievable weather. I had my windows and moon roof open, music playing and feeling each curve of the road. Of course I had to stop and take pictures along the way. Upon arriving we ate lunch, caught up and went on a small hike around her area. The views my friends enjoy every day is beyond beautiful. Before I left I was also able to go inside their neighbors living home. It was as if walking into a Hobbit hole of dreams. There were gardens and dirt floors all throughout the bottom floor, tons of circular rooms and windy stair cases and the best part...a 360 degree viewing tower. After hugs and dinner plans were made I drove back down the mountains as the sun was setting. And as I headed through to Denver I got to see the gigantic harvest moon rise over the landscape. I was breathless.
I've been here four days, that's it just four, and I've already happy I made this decision. While everything will balance out and life will continue I could not regret taking this chance. I am excited to see what this coming year will bring for me out here.
