Reasons to come visit us in Denver…

…not that you need any! But here are some good ones anyway:

1. There are multiple Chipotle restaurants within a 3 mile radius!

2. The REI Flagship store is near us…and if you haven’t been there, you haven’t lived.

3. The Colorado Rockies. They’re not great, but they’re conveniently located and hopefully they will improve…

4. It’s not Hawaii, but we have actual seasons and virtually no humidity!

5. Lots of museums of all sorts.

6. The Tattered Cover Bookstore – which is absolutely amazing according to Jon.

7. Cute, clean, friendly, athletic, outdoorsey atmosphere.

8. There are approximately 15 million single people in Denver alone – wow!

9. It’s the mile high city!

10. There is more than one Five Guys, and if you don’t know what that is, you had better come experience it.

11. Nearby skiing and snowboarding on some of the best mountains you’ll ever experience.

The final reason:

12. We live here now! And we want to see you!


New blog, new home, and new year!

Hello everyone!

Since it is a new year, and will soon be expiring, we decided to try out a new blog. We’ll see how it goes…but hopefully this will fair better than the rest.

We are currently in Monument, CO with Jon’s parents, AT and Susan. We’ve been staying in their basement – which is like a little apartment in and of itself! Unfortunately, we are still living out of our suitcases – which isn’t very fun once you’ve been doing it for a few weeks. But all that will soon change: we’ve found an awesome place to live in Denver and we plan to spend our first night there on Sunday night!

Our new home is a cute little townhouse right across the street from Mayfair park; one of the many parks in the Denver area. It has 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a 2 car garage, lots of storage room, a laundry room, wood burning fireplace, and a super cool BBQ on the patio/lanai! This seems enormous for the both of us after having lived in a 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment on the 25th floor of a high-rise in Hawaii. The townhouse is also only about 4.5 miles away from the University of CO Hospital where Lisa will be working. When the weather permits, this will be a great bike ride to work! Jon will the working out of the house for the time being while he gets his business up and running (KTG Denver – see link). We are both eager to move in and get acquainted with the Denver area.

Our new address is:

1030 Jersey Street Unit 2

Denver, CO 80220

Bottom line: PLEASE COME VISIT US! 🙂

We hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year and look forward to hearing from you! We’ll do our best to send you notifications when the blog has been updated.

Aloha, Jon and Lisa
