Trujillo Company - Denver Bands - Concert Photos

The Trujillo Company, Decatur & Post Paradise at Lost Lake

If I have said it once, I have said it a million times, I love our local Denver music scene. I especially love when a show is stacked with local bands. Sometimes there are so many, I don't even get to photograph them all. Such…
Interview With The Faim - Josh Raven

Interview with The Faim’s Josh Raven

I love when a band has success right off the bat. That's not to say The Faim isn't working hard. From talking to frontman Josh Raven, it's clear they are. But they also recognize how lucky they have been to work with great writers and…

Best Places to Get Maryland Crabs

Best Places to Get Maryland Steamed Crabs

Both Bryan and I grew up in Maryland, and when you are from Maryland, you eat Maryland steamed crabs. But since we moved to Denver 24 years ago, we were a little rusty on the best places to go. Over the past year or so,…

Resort Review: Villa Del Palmar Cancun

We are always up for a good deal and when I got a notification that Villa Del Palmar Cancun was on sale right after the New Year, I couldn't resist a quick trip back down to the ocean. Bryan was banned from our girls-only trip in…

Schloss Montfort

We shipped one of those Pod things from my aunt's house in MD and it arrived safely today. Mostly we sent mundane stuff like the mattress Heidi had just purchased so Dex can finally have a new bed. But the single most important thing to…

Dear Heidi

It's been over a week since you passed and I haven't been able to really talk about it. I have so many thoughts and feelings, it's a little impossible to sort it all out right now. I knew when mom died, you wouldn't be long…
Father's Day

From Bryan to His Dad

Note from Aimee: This year marks the 12th anniversary of my father-in-law's death. I didn't know it, but my husband Bryan has been writing a letter to him for a while. When I read it, I cried. He graciously allowed me to share it here…

P!NK Beautiful Trauma Concert Photos From Denver’s Pepsi Center

Everyone likes P!NK. I mean, how can you not? She is a great singer and a bad-ass chick. I'd always heard she was good in concert but let me correct you on that one. PINK is FUCKING GREAT in concert. I like her music, but…

Cell Phone Contract for Tweens and Teens

As I mentioned yesterday, the kid is more and more online. This is highly due to the fact that we went ahead and gave him a phone. {Insert sigh.} It was a bit earlier than expected, but in some ways, it was the best time.…
