Record Store Day

I got all sorts of cool samplers (like the one from Subpop - The Silver Ticket and UMGD - Play With Courage), a free Avett Brothers 45, a special Iron & Wine 45, and I bought myself the new Postal Service special 10th anniversary LP (which came with a set of postcards) -- all in a free bag with schwag. Pure joy!

Chicken Soup

something warm and comforting on this snowy April day, yet still fresh and bright in flavor for Spring

Mom's Colorado Visit

Started with thrift shops and a day in Manitou -- lunch at Adam's Mountain Cafe...

... and a walk up to William's Canyon. 
(the next day involved rock hunting and Florence, but unfortunately, no photos to share)

 Then a trip to the Denver Art Museum, the Clyfford Still Museum, and...

... my mom's first IKEA adventure.

We finished up our travels with a hike in Garden of the Gods and lunch at Smiley's.
