In my book, summer started last night when it was marked by the first happy hour bike ride of the season. My friend came over after she got off work, and off we went on our bikes! We are so lucky to live just 2 miles from Cherry Creek (my favorite neighborhood in Denver) where there are countless restaurants and shops. Many with outdoor patios which I mean
really, is The way to do happy hour.
We went two a couple different places, and spent the night sipping on wine and amaratto sours and catching up on life. Between the two of us we have a 6 year old, 3 year old, 2 year old and 3 month old, so getting together can prove difficult (plus she works full time!) so spending 4 hours catching up barely even scratched the surface!
I'm so grateful for the night out after a few rough days. Apparently a long bike ride, hours of fresh air, a good friend and a couple of cocktails are Just what I needed! Special thanks to Drew who made the effort to come home a few hours earlier than normal to give me some Me time!
