My sister Erin and I recently visited Colorado. We went down to work a wedding together; she is a photographer and as some of you may already know, I am a makeup artist.
We have been lucky enough to work together over the years but this was our first out of country business trip together and it was a blast! The wedding took place in Keystone, Colorado, a ski resort town home to the famed Keystone Resort.
Once the wedding was over we had a few free days before heading back to Toronto. We did a day trip out to Colorado Springs then spent 2 days in Denver.
Here are my top 6 Fave Things about my trip!
- We went to the Garden of the Gods and it was breathtaking! I had never seen anything like it before – red rocks bursting up along the natural fault line that lies below. This National Natural Landmark has been preserved and protected over the years as it was a gift from the landowner – William Jackson Perkins – to the city of Colorado Springs with the caveat that it remain a public, free park for the rest of time.
- Denver, which just happens to be rated one of the “5 American Cities You Should Visit In 2015” by the Huffington Post and as they said “Denver, Colorado is just plain awesome!” I agree! From the Art Museum to the National Park, there’s so much to do in this cool, eclectic city.
- We stayed at the Hotel Monaco Denver which is a Kimpton property; Kimpton’s are one of my faves! Service, location and a complimentary wine hour, I’m in!
- I finally got to visit a Jonathan Adler store!!! There was one in Denver and that made me so happy. I had only ever shopped online and if any of you follow me on Instagram you know I love home décor / interior design! JonathanAdler
Colorado was such a fun trip! I hope Erin and I get to do more business adventures together over the years.
Have any of you been to Colorado before or planning a trip in the U.S. soon?
