Week Re-Cap

Denver Tea Co.'s Pikes Peak Chai is A+

A late week re-cap because phew, work has been a lot! But in a good way. The Visit Longmont Visitors Guide officially came out and is has been the epic project I've been working on since last fall. And then, I got to present to the travel industry on TikTok yesterday. So you can see, it has been a lot! This weekend I'm working at the vaccine site and accomplishing some other tasks in preparation for my parent's arrival next Wednesday. We are departing on a massive Colorado roadtrip next weekend and I cannot wait. How are you? — xoxo darling, Hayden
