August 26th: Eat at Vesta

So I came across this restaurant a couple years ago in downtown Denver called Vesta. I do not remember why but it really caught my eye and I have been meaning to try it ever since. 

Today is my birthday, so no better day than today. Holy goodness, it was so delicious!

Six friends came along. They had a 38 ounce ribeye that sounded just amazing! So three of us shared it. 


The idea of the restaurant is that it’s a “dipping” restaurant so most of the dishes come with lots of sauces and you dip everything. The steak was great. We also got dipping sauces with pita bread, a huge charcuterie plate and amazing dessert.

The best part though, my friends spending a great birthday with me and enjoying great food.

 

June 25th: Run a 5K

This event meant so much more to me than simply running a 5K. 

I did a 5K for Melanoma Research Foundation. I talked about it earlier this year when I decided to raise money for the group. But the experience today surpassed anything I could have expected.

I ran for me (I am a melanoma survivor), I ran for my friend Kelly, whose father passed away from melanoma, and I just ran for anyone that deals with this horrible disease.

It was a beautiful day. Our team had a great time and raised a lot of money.

April 18th: Buy a Friend a Balloon for Their Birthday

Sometimes the simplest things can go a long way. I know that from personal experience and I think most people feel the same way.

So this has been on my list, obviously, all year but I realized it was my friend Sara’s birthday I thought there was no better day than today to do this one. 

I love how much she appreciated it… 😀❤
