    My Perfect Day in Boulder:
    • Starting the day with a strong cup of Mate from Pekoe tea house. 
    • Then, hiking to the top of Mount Sanitas with a good friend and my young daughter strapped on my back. Or, depending on the time of year, taking my oldest daughter to Eldora to ski, snowboard and play in the snow.
    • Heading to the Boulder Farmers Market with my family for some delicious Sister’s Pantry Dumplings, and watching my kids run around barefoot and climb some of their favorite trees.
    • In the evening, meeting my sisters and friends at Shine for our unique cocktails and dinner.
    • Then heading to the St. Julien Hotel & Spa to practice my Samba moves while listening to local Brazilian band Samba Dende.
