In this post, I'm sharing the best food gifts I've come across over the years, and tips on making them unique to the individual.

This quick getaway took us to Colorado, where we flew in early Saturday morning and made the one-and-a-half-hour drive from Denver to Winter Park. We spent the rest of the day acclimating to the higher altitude and exploring the main street of this charming town. Sunday morning was another early one as we like to hit the trails by 6 am.
