Hi friends! As y’all know, I have been in Colorado for the last two days, but now it’s time for me to go home to Indy. It has been such an amazing and beautiful trip, but I miss my friends(and let’s be real… my dog) so I am excited to go home. I hopefully can come back to Denver in the future to visit family and see more places!
This was one of my favorite parts of our trips. If you are a tea fanatic like me(or have ever been to a grocery store…), I’m sure you have heard of Celestial Seasonings, the company that makes Celestial Tea. They are well known for their Sleepythyme tea, as well as their mint tea. They serve 1.6 billion cups of tea a year! How crazy is that? Celestial Seasonings produces all their tea in one factory in Boulder,CO and they offer free factory tours. I was so impressed by the factory tour, it was way more educational and interactive then other factory tours. You can sample ANY of the teas that are currently in stores, and we even got to try some of the holiday teas that aren’t yet in stores(pssst! Try the gingerbread!) I wish I could show you pictures of the tour, but there was a strict “no pictures” policy. One of my favorite parts of the tour is the Mint Room. It’s a room in the factory where they store all of the mint and some rosemary tea. Anyways, I highly recommend the tour, as it is super interesting and totally free.
I tried 3 different teas: Fireside Vanilla Spice, Gingerbread, and the Wild Berry Zinger.
After the tea tour, we went to Boulder, which is where the University of Colorado is. The town was so cute and the buildings were gorgeous. I can’t even imagine going to college somewhere that pretty. It was actually homecoming for them this weekend, so they had a variety of events going on.
I went to the CUTEST coffee shop EVER in Boulder. It’s called Boxcar Coffee Roaster and it was amazing. I had this amazing vanilla latte. The vibe is super upbeat and friendly, I would highly recommend visiting if you are in the area.
The next morning, we went to Union Station, which is this beautiful train station that has been running since 1881! This weekend was the second to last weekend that they had an outdoor farmers market. I love going to farmers markets in the Spring and Fall, it’s so nice to get fresh fruit, flowers, or goods from local shops. Inside of Union Station is this little coffee shop that my Aunt said was really yummy-and she was right. If you want to check it out click here.
The Wedding 🙂
On Saturday night, we had the event that we came to Colorado for-the wedding! The wedding took place at this Brewery which I thought was super cool. It was at night and we got to see the sunset outside where the ceremony was, which was perfect. We had amazing weather too, which made things even better. One of the most unique things about the wedding was that we got to get food from this Hawaiian food truck that was parked outside. The food was really amazing and the cake had three really unique and delicious flavors.
Isn’t this a cute idea?
Thanks for reading about my weekend adventure to Colorado, I hope you enjoyed it!
