Denver, Denver

So this trip to Denver has become a road trip with the girls that I work with. I couldn't be happier.

The Denver Art Museum (DAM, haha) has this exhibit that has been loaned from the Louvre, and apparently it's the first time that the Louvre has loaned anything to the Western Hemisphere. And as museum junkies, the girls at work and I have been very excited about this momentous occasion, and have decided to drive out to Denver in a couple of weeks to be a part of it. We all love museums, we've all decided that we want to work in museums for the rest of our lives, it's only natural that we'd want to go. Plus, most of us have been dying to go to Denver on a road trip anyway.

My friend Jessie is going, she is married like me, and Kirsten and Kelsey are going, two single girls. Ever since I got married, I've thought that I would still able to go on trips with friends of mine if I wanted. Unfortunately, that trip never came up, and when my friends got married a trip with them became unlikely as they moved away or had other responsibilities. But now it's here, it's possible!

I'm looking forward to this trip not only as a cultural perk, but as a break and a reminder that there's still some freedom in life.
