OK, yeah, so... 2016 doesn't seem like the Broncos' year. But they are rebuilding, right? Not that I even know what I am talking about since I an about as unknowledgeable about sports as they come. But one thing I *do* know about: BRUNCH! It's pretty much my favorite thing if you follow our Swarm check-ins. We were thrilled when The Palm Denver invited us to check out their Broncos brunch recently, and ride the football bus over to the game. Of course, it happened to be the coldest day of the year so far, but we didn't mind. We'd sampled the Bloody Mary bar and dressed warm - plus the atmosphere on the bus was cozy.
I was recently in Lisbon, Portugal, for Web Summit and had planned to stay near the conference the whole time. It was a wonderful surprise when Martinhal Chiado Family Suites reached out and asked if I would like to stay with them for part of my time in their town. They had just opened a new hotel in the fantastic Chiado neighborhood. Lucky for me, the night I stayed there, Web Summit was holding a "Night Summit" nearby - Night Summit being a code word for "party". So I got to explore a hotel that I definitely plan to return to with my family, tucked in an area of town I would have been exploring that night anyway. Perfect!

Recently, we headed up the hill from Denver to check out the new "yurt village" at YMCA's Snow Mountain Ranch. Sometimes we Denverites forget how much beauty is so close to us, just a quick drive away. The yurts are a great option for families that want to camp, but still have some luxuries... you know - like electricity and beds. Each yurt can sleep up to 6 people, with one queen bed and two bunked beds. And! You can bring your dog. Something I will definitely keep in mind for next time.
