Instead of coming home after my Cooking Matters shoot in Arkansas, I went straight to Colorado where my next shoots would be a few days later. Brooke joined me for a weekend in Denver and instantly suspended my home-sickness for a couple of days. Flying straight to Denver also gave me a few consecutive nights of sleep without catching an early flight. We mainly lounged and watched Downton Abbey in our hotel room, but we also managed the energy to eat at Snooze (3 times), visit Boulder, and make a pilgrimage to Room and Board.I suppose I could have flown home to then turn around and fly back a day later, but there is something wonderful about existing in that rare space and time of neither-here-nor-there. Similar to our mini winter reprieve last year, it's just nice to be in a place and under circumstances that don't demand anything of you or your expectations.
