Hey y’all! Back from Mexico City and ready to talk about Colorado! I meant to do this before Mexico, but well… life happened. Isn’t that what vacation is for?! I had never been to Colorado, but thanks to y’all (and my friend @laurenkaysims), I had the best recs and the best time! We were there over a long weekend, so not a ton of time, but enough to get a taste for the city and want to come back! We flew into Denver and then drove to Boulder in our Toyota Sequoia.

Here’s a bit of what we did and what' we’d recommend if you’re in Boulder. It’s such a cute city and I can’t wait to go back. My favorite thing was probably the walkability. We stayed very close to Pearl Street, so we had access to a ton of shops and restaurants!
