Happy Birthday to Me!

Thanks to Jon, I had the best birthday ever!

It started with a three hour bike tour of Copenhagen...

...followed by a Bailey's and coffee and beer while we dried out (it drizzled a bit on us at the end)...

...and then delicious Thai food and a bottle of my favorite wine.

It was the perfect day for reflecting on the blessings in my life; my current adventure, my family and friends and, most importantly, my husband. Thank you all for being in my life and making me feel so special!


  1. Sounds like an awesome bday, Ellen. Definitely been enjoying your two's adventures over the past several months - and am fortunate by the nature of coincidence to count you both as good friends of mine.

    Happy 364 unbirthdays!

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
