Christmas in Colorado

We spent Christmas visiting our son and had such a wonderful visit!  The Rocky Mts. were so lovely, very different from the Smoky Mts. not too far from my home.  Denver is such a big city! Wow! You have to understand that I live in a small city and have lived here most of my life, so it was such a treat to visit such a place.  The population of the Denver metro area is 2.4 million, y'all - there are only 4.5 million in the whole state of SC! The shopping was to die for:)
The mall had a Western motif with timber ceilings, boulders, waterfalls, and hard wood floors! There were no benches for sitting, instead they had groupings of leather sofas and chairs and a fireplace!! Lots of artwork depicting the landscape of the area before it became a city.
Coldwater Creek, Nordstroms, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware and tons more. There was a whole store for Vera Bradley!! Tons of sales, and an awesome selection too:)

You can drive by a Target or a Bed Bath and Beyond, and five minutes later you pass another one! I bet there are 4 Walmarts within a ten minute drive from my son's house. It was such a nice new, CLEAN city. Needless to say I was very impressed.

  1. Hi Carole,

    Wow - the photos look so gorgeous! No wonder John Denver sang about them in his song "Rocky Mountain High". Sounds you had a wonderful time with your son at Christmas - and what a fabulous place to spend Christmas!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comments. I too would love to get some more masculine images like Flourishes and Northwoods - they have some gorgeous images.

    Happy New Year Carole - may all your dreams come true!
