A Michigander Thanksgiving

Steven and I were fortunate enough to be able to visit Michigan this past Thanksgiving, and revisit many things we didn’t know we missed.

Sometimes you forget how beautiful some of the simplest places can be – like a backyard!

Bell’s Two Hearted Ale… why do you not visit Colorado? At the Holiday Bar in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Credit: Kirsten Ebey, Nov 2013

Dear Coloradans, I know I haven’t been around long, but I feel you know beer. You know how to brew it, you know how to market it, and you sure as hell know how to enjoy it!

Michiganders also know a thing (or twenty) about beer – check out Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo, MI. Home of my personal favorites, Two-Hearted Ale and (seasonal) Oberon. For whatever reason, (I’m sure there’s some fancy reason I’m not privy to) Bell’s cannot be located in Colorado, which is incredibly saddening. If you’re ever in a state that receives distributed Bell’s brews, please do yourself a favor and try them out.

Seeing family is fantastic; meeting new members like the sweet baby Bernese Mountain dog, Remington, above, is the icing on the cake. Welcome to the family, Remington.

To us, our friends are also our family. Pictured above is the B Team, putting to bed a bottle of Absolut Citron that has taken 10 years to finish. Sorry to say, but that stuff is awful. However, with a little teamwork and strategy, obviously anything is possible.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with those they love, even if via FaceTime.

Have fun with the upcoming holidays – remember to breathe and take the festivities in stride. You can do it – we believe in you.

Happy Halloween, Denver!

This Halloween will mark my other half, Steven, and I’s 1 year anniversary of the first time we visited Denver. We were in town for a few days to hang with good friends, go to the Saints vs. Broncos game, and ended up at Atomic Cowboy on Halloween. This year, we’re going back to Atomic Cowboy for “good measure” or to “come full circle”.  However, we’ll have sweet costumes this time!

Don’t know what to be for Halloween? No worries – In honor of Halloweens past, here’s a few good ones for ya:

Halloween 2011

Chest hair, bandana’s, mustaches, and rolled socks in our pants… we sang karaoke in Grand Rapids and let women rub up on us. We even practiced a dance routine for weeks that was unveiled Halloween night. Obviously, it was awesome. Left to Right: Emily, Sarah (SB), Kirsten. Credit: Sarah Bloomfield
