GRATITUDE: A LIST 

A random compilation of things for which I am currently grateful, in honor of the holiday season that kicks off later this month. 

Magazines, all of them: a near perfect medium. Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlists and all the solid new music it’s turned me onto. Live music. Tiny dogs, with bonus points for my lil 2.75-pound Gidget. Long-sleeve shirts with thumb holes. Fuzzy boot season. Snowfalls followed by 70-degree days. First runs of the season. Last runs of the day. Infused marshmallows floating in steaming cups of chocolate. Canada. 

Being able to re-create my mom’s stuffing without having to roast a whole turkey. Celebrating the art of imperfection. Realizing that striving for perfection is a waste of time. 

Bearing witness to the major progressive strides being made in Denver. The significance of the major Dior retrospective exhibit opening at Denver Art Museum this month. The intricacy of Tara Donavan’s artworks currently on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. (If you haven’t seen the show yet, go.) Reading about the impressive exhibition in Elle magazine last month. 

Vacation days put to good use. Traveling to new countries. Exploring what lies beneath. Hulu’s “no commercial plan.” Wana’s new vape pens. CBD facial mists in every room of the apartment. CycleBar, Soul Cycle, and Flywheel. Uber eats. Traditions. Eschewing traditions. 

Pies by the chef from the Regional in Fort Collins. Watching the cannabis industry come together in larger and larger numbers in Vegas every year for MJBiz—the November conference by Marijuana Business Journal. Being part of a legal cannabis industry. The new normal. 

Leftovers. Mashed potatoes with chives. Feasts. Festivals. Fashion weeks. Locally made artisan gifts. Bronco-colored sunrises. And sunsets. Snowcapped mountains. Perspective. Voting. Sensi, now in seven markets with an eighth magazine—Emerald Triangle, California—launching January 1. And and and… More. For all this and more, I am thankful. 

Cheers to it all.
