So as promised, here they are!
LA was gorgeous. We are
I was lucky enough to have a great view from my hotel room not only of the skyline where I could see a strip of the ocean . . .
but also a beautiful garden in the courtyard behind the hotel.
I could have looked at that garden all day! It was so beautiful and I really enjoyed having a break from winter. (On a colder note, it is supposed to be freezing in New York next week. *sad*
The dinner was amazing. It was at this quaint little restaurant called Derek's Bistro and had lovely ambiance. And we got to meet Derek himself while we were there!
It was really a lovely, lovely dinner.
In Denver I stayed at an older and very beautiful hotel. Denver has a different feel to it. I don't even really know how to describe it, but I really liked it. My view wasn't quite as green as the LA view (ha!), but I really enjoyed seeing the Denver skyline.
I love how things like views can be so different and equally gorgeous.
The lobby of this hotel was so homey and beautiful. I wish I'd gotten a chance to sit in it longer. especially in front of that warm fireplace!
And look at that wood floor. SO incredibly gorgeous!
We had dinner that night in downtown Denver at a restaurant called Bistro Vendome. Really, really incredible food! I forgot to get a picture inside the restaurant, but John (Harper's rep and the fabulous host!) took some pics of me a couple of the guests.
It really was such and amazing, beautiful, delicious, unforgettable trip and I hope you guys have enjoyed sharing part of it with me.
