"Where 'objects trouves' (personal treasures) are the everyday!!!!" If you're a fan of the television show Flea Market Flip on HGTV like we are, then you'll flip for "A Paris Street Market" in Boulder - an open air vintage, antique and artisan market held at Twenty Ninth Street mall. We happened upon the market recently (June 1st) and discovered super cool, one-of-a-kind treasures and gifts for the home, yard, wardrobe, and well actually for just about any area of life that needs enhancing. Just a few examples of items for sale include antique, rustic and refurbished furniture, classic kitchen ware and textiles, vintage cowboy boots and refurbished clothing, french country linens and things, hand-made bags, lovely venerable and hand-crafted jewelry,

Easton Training CenterA big part of the Boulder lifestyle is about being active, staying healthy, and having a good time while doing it! Easton Training Centers embody these ideals and offer a place to train not only your body, but your mind. Based out of Boulder, with many locations across the Front Range, Easton facilities have classes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, and Mixed Martial Arts. This diverse fitness center also has classes for children, families and those just looking to get in better shape.

My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting the Boulder location recently, and immediately you could see that this was a tight group and an inviting atmosphere. It was nice to see such a variety of people training there, men and women of all ages. We caught the

Small Mammals Longmont Humane SocietyWe all know the song, “How Much is that Doggy in the Window,” but have you ever heard anyone sing about how much is that rat or guinea pig in the window and if so, would he or she make a good family pet? The answer to those questions are, cheap in comparison to a dog and yes they would make a great pet for the right family!

Small mammals like hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, mice and rats are very common household pets, which are loved by many children and families. Although these animals are still considered rodents, they have the ability to be wonderful family pets and can actually be very sociable with the right kind of training. Many rodents when raised in captivity love human contact and have the capacity to learn tricks, which shows how smart these

Boulder Food Truck ProgramThis weekend, the food truck pilot program that has been talked about so much earlier in the year finally begins in Boulder. This program includes five different parks and two downtown locations where people can visit for some great food. The program is being tested in the City of Boulder and will be analyzed upon its seasonal completion to determine what the effects were on the City itself and how successful it was in creating a new local food industry. In places like New York, Seattle, Portland, and Chicago, the food truck industry is already booming, which has opened up great new alternative dining options for people living and working in the area.

I personally think this is a great fit for Boulder, because we have such a dynamic food scene already.

Walking Around BoulderWalkability simply refers to how easily you can get around a given area or neighborhood by foot. This concept is not new, but the word is sure generating a pretty big buzz these days, especially in terms of real estate, lifestyles, fitness, and the eco friendly industry. Although the idea of living, working and playing in one centralized location, where everything is close enough to walk wherever you need to go is one of the basic draws to urban living, the concept has now expanded to mean more. Walkability and bikeability both refer to a way of life, one that offers residents ease, convenience, and community.

Walkability is huge in cities like Boulder and Denver, Colorado because more and more people believe that being able to use other means of

Broomfield Real EstateI am so pleased to announce that our home buying and selling experience has come to an end and we could not be happier with our new home! Today’s date is June 1st, which is significant because according to the plan I mapped out some 6 months ago, me and my family are all settled into our new house precisely on schedule. Honestly, I could not have imagined things going as smoothly as they did through the negotiations, financing, closing, and especially the actual physical move. Here’s a little recap from the final stage of my personal home buying and selling experience.

The Boulder ReservoirCan I just say "hurray" it is finally time for summer fun and swimming in the Front Range! I don’t know about you, but to me there is nothing better than sitting poolside or at one of our state’s beautiful reservoirs watching the kids play and soaking up as much vitamin D as my skin can stand! We are very fortunate in the Boulder area to have easy access to some really awesome water recreation opportunities. From inner tubing down the Boulder Creek and boating on the Boulder Reservoir, to swim lessons and pool clubs, if it was up to me there would never be a dry moment all summer! Here is my list of the top places for swimming and summer fun around Boulder, Colorado.

First on the list, especially since I already mentioned it, has to be the Boulder

Student Life CU BoulderStudent life at CU Boulder is all about being out and about, with “The Hill” being the official home of college life for students. This is where you find the majority of the sororities and fraternities, as well as some of the University's most popular bars, music venues, and eateries. The Fox Theater, The Sink, The Corner Bar, and Buchanan's Coffee Pub are just a few of the hotspots that are always teeming with college life. Located right across from campus, University Hill is also home to many of the city’s old Victorian mansions and has a history that dates back to the very beginning of Boulder. This unique gem is not only the place to go if you are looking to have a good time, but it is also a place where our CU students learn about Boulder’s culture
