Bringing my love for books, mountains, and being a mom to you!


What’s 5280 got to do with it? Well, there are 5280 feet in a mile, which is how high my beloved city of Denver is above sea level. The beautiful, amazing, inspiring, impossibly cool, state of Colorado averages a smidgen higher in altitude, but 5280 is catchier. The way I see it, there are at least 5280 things to love about this state, and it’s my goal to share them all with you. Travel, food, shopping, people, news – they are all worth our attention and I’m here to show them off.
