i included things like go to the Denver Aquarium (we have been wanting to for so long), go to the zoo (we got engaged there and love it!), try out a new brewery (in Colorado there is no shortage of breweries and we tend to go to the same ones over and over), and recreate our first date (a movie at the indie theater in town – Kimballs and drinks at Old Chicagos!). there are so many date ideas for you to chose from!! and you can even add you own faces into the pictures – so cute! πŸ˜‰

    Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm
    completely confused .. Any ideas? Thank you!
