     I live in Fort Collins with my husband and two children, our bearded dragon, two turtles and three cats. We love spending time outdoors, hiking fourteeners and walking trails. I grew up in Michigan and have always enjoyed spending time swimming, skiing and boating. Out of all the wonderful activities to do in Colorado, my favorite is exploring our beautiful state, sampling the culture, music, theater and food from every small town to big cities.
