In Love With Nut Butters

 be it breakfast or a snack, I love toasty bread with peanut or almond butter and slices of banana...

 C's specialty: fresh grapes instead of grape jelly

three different jellies on PB and toast

Tax Time

Trying to de-stress after working on my taxes... a horrible thing for a creative freelancer. Tax tip for those of you new to this, just in case you don't already know (I learned the hard way), save 15% from each freelance payment so when April rolls around, you aren't totally freaking out. Plus, keep your receipts and track your mileage!
Here is a helpful website I came across.

Yellow Vintage Bracelets

I hesitate to wear these as they are a bit delicate and I'm not convinced I could figure out how to fix them!

Food in Fort Collins

Last week, I got to do some of my favorite things in Fort Collins: grab treats from Little Bird Bakery (lemon custard and a pastry here), then hang out at the Bean Cycle (a macchiato and a Kerouac)...

...ending up at the Rio for some famous margaritas -- this was my first strawberry one, surprisingly good! Best of all, I got to share this with my best friend on her first real day exploring FC.

Shapes of Art Fundraiser

Last week, my volunteers and I worked hard to get Shapes of Art installed in the Main Gallery of FCMOA. If you have a chance, I hope you stop by and support a local nonprofit! The Member/Artist Preview is tonight and the Opening Reception is tomorrow, Friday from 5-9pm.

I'm back

I've been in Fort Collins for the past week and a half, working hard at the museum, but making time to really have fun, too. Saw lots of friends, drank good wine and sangria, ate delicious food, and the weather was just stunning the whole time! In many ways, I didn't really want to come back to the Springs. So I felt like reminding myself of why I also love it here -- a view of Pikes Peak from a great rock spot.
