I’ve been inspired by so many bloggers, friends and creatives all around me. Denver is filled with some downright geniuses in the creative world. I’m always discovering new and exciting artists as I slowly dip my foot into this pool of Denver Creatives.

But there’s a special creative I’d like to introduce you to, Lauren. Lauren is the writer behind Pearls Poppies Pinkies Up, several blogs and articles in Darling Magazine and her newest venture, Nellie Magazine. We met through blogging, in particular, the day it snowed on May 1st  here in Denver. We both posted pictures on Instagram – soon finding out we lived just blocks from each other at the time! That turned into a coffee date I won’t soon forget.

After reading her blog and articles on Darling, I built up this image in my head of who this amazing Lauren would be! She was that and so much more. I felt an instant connection to her in that little coffee shop. She is one of the kindest people I know. She’s a lady in every sense of the word, but with a bohemian twist. She is an incredible listener, friend and I never cease to feel completely encouraged after time spent with this precious gal. So, today I wanted to share her, her blog in hopes that her beautiful writing and ability to share in a raw, selfless way will encourage you as much as it has me.

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

Day at a Time

Eat. Drink. Create.


About a month ago I was invited to attend an event called Eat. Drink. Create. for local creatives here in Denver. Since I am new to the design, blog and creative world, I jump at the chance to meet creatives.

You see, creatives see the world differently. For example, we don’t just read a poster on a bulletin. We analyze it. We name the fonts in our head that are used. We question their use of the grid, their color choice and then maybe we actually love it or don’t. We creatives can’t just look at normal things and pass them by. Everything we see is art and must be cherished and thought of as such.

So, back to the event. It’s actually tomorrow night and I’m lying awake thinking about it – who I’ll meet, what I’ll learn, how inspired I’ll be afterward. This will be one of my first meet ups with bloggers and creatives and if you can’t tell or if I haven’t mentioned it enough, I can hardly contain my excitement. Any chance to meet new friends, but especially creative friends is a wonderful opportunity.

When I get back, I’ll let you know how it went!

Have a Happy Thursday, Friends!
