As hard as it can sometimes be to be away from home (the uncomfortable mattresses, meal-after-meal of junk food, etc.), I've really been enjoying vacationing this summer. Being free from work for the summer is great, but I have a hard time functioning without a routine. The exception to this is when I am off on a vacation somewhere. I was raised to believe that when you are on vacation, it's okay to have no plans and to be free to do whatever you feel like doing. Being out of town has made it much easier for me to live freely, which I appreciate.
This last weekend I found myself in Golden, Colorado. My cousin got married on Saturday, so we all made the journey to the Denver-area to celebrate with her. I have always loved Colorado, and Golden is a great little city. In the hours before the ceremony, my parents and I explored downtown Golden, stopping at a farmer's market on the way. We also found time during the weekend to go to downtown Denver. We wandered up and down the 16th Street Mall and had dinner at a brewery across from Coors Field, where the Colorado Rockies play ball.
Hopefully it won't be too long before the next Colorado trip!
