The South Boulder neighborhood is key to my perfect day, which would revolve around art, flowers, food, yoga and some pampering with friends.
I’d start the day in my garden loving my flowers from the pop-up nursery, Giambrocco & Sons Garden, and drinking Boxcar coffee, before a morning class at Yoga Loft. My husband and I spend a lot of time in the Table Mesa Shopping Center.
Next, we’d pick up some meat for the grill from Blackbelly. Their butchers are super cool and you can watch them at work behind the counter.
The end of our day would be a dinner party with friends and the aforementioned flowers, watching one of the gorgeous Colorado sunsets.
