Northern Colorado Life – December 2021/January 2022

Holidays are here again and we’re approaching the end of yet another year. It’s amazing how they seem to gain speed as I get older. Many things have changed and many things haven’t, but regardless many of us have gotten used to be in a state of flux as we can see in the slow return of many of our favorite events. The holiday season is no exception. Many of the things we missed last year are back with a renewed appreciation for the relationships we’ve missed out on. Most of us now know to catch up with event requirements in the hours before we go. We’ve provided a rundown on the things you can expect to see this year, throughout northern Colorado, though, as I’ve pointed out, it is always best to check in for changes before you go.

Northern Colorado Life – June/July 2021

If the pandemic has taught me one thing, it’s an appreciation of restaurants. I have always loved to cook, but knowing that there was no break to be had, even when I needed one, got to me after a while. It becomes just another daily box to tick off my list rather than an exercise in creativity. Of course, I did take-out when possible, but even that leaves dishes to be done and don’t even get me started on the constant kitchen cleaning. I am over it.

So, along with many of you, I’m sure, I am rejoicing at the return of in-person dining. I’m happy to let someone else do all of the cooking and cleaning again, while I truly take a break. Just in case you need ideas or just want to know how your favorite spots are doing, this issue is chock-full.

Northern Colorado Life – April/May 2021

This spring seems to mark a turning point. It shows the promise of restaurants, retail, events, and even our very lives beginning to open back up. But, while we’re slowly drifting back toward “normal,” whatever that may be, we are so incredibly lucky to live in a spot where the great outdoors are so accessible.

Ubiquitous local natural areas and trails afford us the opportunity to stretch our legs and enjoy the sunshine, with our families and pets in tow. If you’ve found a new love for gardening, let it grow! We’ve talked to local experts about home beekeeping–good for gardens and habitats as a whole. If your volunteerism has been curtailed by the pandemic, find a way to do it outside. The city of Greeley gives residents a great opportunity.
