Ah, money. Don’t we love it; don’t we wish we had more. I find that I like to spend my money on concerts, festivals, and similar events with friends. Sometimes these aren’t cheap though, and in order to do so I always have to be budgeting for the rest of the things I do. Going out with friends tonight? I need to somehow be able to have fun AND spend less. As I’ve been budgeting and saving money for bigger purchases, I realized that a lot of small purchases we make can really add up. By saying no to a lot of little convenient purchases, I’ve actually surprised myself at how much I’ve... Read More

5 Ways to Live Greener

June 21st, 2019

I love the outdoors. The purity and sanctity of nature is something many of us take for granted, and nothing is more disappointing than seeing trash on the bank of a mountain stream or finding plastic in the underbrush of a backcountry trail. Our planet is in danger, and it’s up to us to do our part and make a difference in protecting it so future generations can enjoy the beauty of untouched nature the way we have been able to. But how to even begin? The internet is flush with examples of people who live a zero-waste lifestyle, who started recycling companies at age 7, who invented tools to... Read More

We live in a beautiful town. Boulder is filled with smiling faces, gorgeous surrounding sceneries, and a facade that makes us reminisce of a small mountain town.

November 18th, 2014

When the weather turns cold and people find themselves inside more it’s a great opportunity to put those cozy, hot chocolate drinking web surfers to work! What do I mean: the cold – especially very harsh and snowy days that come out of no where, like last week in Boulder – gets people on their computers.
