BANNERS at Bluebird Theater Denver, Unplugged + Electric

The Wombats - Denver Concert Photos - Music Blog

The Wombats and Barns Courtney at Ogden Theatre

I have seen The Wombats at least three or four times now (including earlier this year) and they never disappoint. Dark room, loud music - exactly what you would expect at a pop-punk show. What I didn't expect? A marriage proposal from stage. No joke.…
Gary Numan - Concert Photos Denver - Savage Tour 2018

Gary Numan at Gothic Theatre Denver

Gary Numan is an experience in concert. It's loud, dark, electronic – and yet somehow intimate at the same time. Photographing that can be a challenge, but thanks to the Savage tour, I now have a bunch of cool silhouettes to add to my collection.…

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,…

YMCA Estes Park: An Easy Way To Stay Near Rocky Mountain National Park

Note: YMCA of the Rockies provided our weekend stay. All words and photos are mine. I love Estes Park as a destination. There is an adorable downtown area, and it's right at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. I also love YMCA of the…

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…

I reach out to your office often and I feel like all I get back is form letters, so now I am taking to my blog to talk to you. I have seen in the news that it's probable you are going to vote "yes"…

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…

You have seen the shows about tiny houses, right? Have you ever stayed in one? Have you ever thought about a tiny home vacation? A tiny home is typically under 500 square feet and they have become popular because of their small impact on the environment…

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.…
