Tips for Local Brunching

By Kirsten Lamb

Summer is here. It may only be May, but it's beautiful out and in the 80s! One of my two favorite things to do is go for walks with my husband, baby and dog. The other is to eat brunch. In my neighborhood, just north of the Highlands in Denver, there are several quaint places to eat, but not ma... Read More

5 Tips for a SuperMom

By Kirsten Lamb

As a stay-at-home mom, my official job title can range from breast milk dispenser to dust bunny obliterator, depending on the day. While there’s no shortage of tasks to keep me busy, it can be a challenge to balance spending quality time with my child while still feeling productive. Here ar... Read More

Local produce: Farmers Market vs. CSA

By Kirsten Lamb

In the Denver doldrums of winter, the landscape can be colorless and local produce can be sparing. Most Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares and farmers markets stop selling food in winter, so organic veggies are only found in the produce section of the grocery store. But now is the time... Read More

Documenting Everyday Moments

By Katie Neuman

It is late in the day.  Our living room is swathed in a sheet of sunlight.  My little ones are perched on bent knees beneath this wall of light building elaborate Legoscapes and Playmobil camp spreads.  This ethereal scene occurs daily in our home unless the afternoon sun has gone hiding.  I hav...

Seeking Nourishment

By Katie Neuman

The snow has been falling for two straight days.  On this particular day we set off for a sledding adventure.  Each new step forged over prairie, out through the vast unknown.  I know this field well, or at least I thought I did.  I've been exploring it for three years now. But like a good st... Read More

Carry On

By Katie Neuman

It is a new year; a fresh start. The other night, before I closed my eyes and bid 2011 adieu, I reread some pieces I wrote over the year here and on my blog.  Rarely do I go back and reread something I have written.  For many reasons, I just don't like to do it. Last summer, I found three ... Read More

Holiday Traditions - Blossoms of Light at the Denver Botanic Gardens

By Katie Neuman

One by one I hauled the boxes of Christmas tree ornaments and decorations up from the basement with the pitter-patter of tiny feet swirling around me, creating the same magical feeling as watching the snow falling outside.  As each box was flung open by small, impatient hands, glee was palpable.  ...

Change of Season - Autumn's Break {Ho Hum}

By Katie Neuman

A candle is burning in the kitchen, the smell of winter and fire and woods wafting toward me and wrapping me in a soft embrace.  My little ones are only a few feet away, building pirate ships and get-away boats out of Legos on the rug, the fireplace aglow.  I've made a latte, the sound of Norah ...

Season's Change {Autumn}

By Katie Neuman

I'm working outside in the garden still.  My feet are bare even though the grass is cold in the early mornings now.   It's as if those icy drops of dew are there to send a warning from the bottoms of my feet straight to my soul.  "Soon", it says, "you won't round this bend every morning looking ...

Growth

By Katie Neuman

He came downstairs, dressed in shorts, a too big hand-me-down t-shirt, striped socks pulled up as high on his legs as they could go and running shoes.  His ball cap was slightly crooked, just like his smile.  Silently, with a million words in his eyes, he walked towards me then cut hard left and g...
