"Reuse, Recycle, Redecorate"
It's been a while - have you missed me? I've missed you. These chats keep me sane in the midst of what has become quite a home renovation. Quick recap: sold first house, sunk all our money into new house, working our way through big and small renovations one little piece at a time.
Which brings me to today's topic, if I may. I have recently been introduced to a fairly common dilemma for the up-and-coming homeowner set. We sell the starter home, buy the "forever" home, unpack our belongings, and realize that our furniture looks tiny in this new larger space. And we don't have enough pictures. Or couches. Or beds for that matter.…

It's no secret that underground wining and dining is big in Denver. We spent a wonderfully satisfying summer stuffing ourselves courtesy of Hush, Noble Swine Supper Club and The Yellow Woodpecker. We're currently warming ourselves on bitter winter nights at Green Russell and Williams and Graham. The newest kid on the secret suppers block? Why it's none other than an old friend reinventing itself - Gather is a dining experience presented by Denver Botanic Gardens. Interested? You should be. Dwell scored the inside track on this latest "top secret" meal.
The atmosphere is: Communal. Like the title suggests, these pop-up events will be offered a few times a year as a way for locals to come together, make friends, and experience the Gardens in a fun new…

Central Bistro and Bar is high-end, down home food that makes you proud to be an American. We salute it. This place is Denver at its best.
Bistro: Central Bistro and Bar for the best of local drinks and eats. http://centralbistrobar.com/
Location: 1691 Central St., in Denver's LoHi neighborhood.
The Atmosphere is...like a sultry butcher shop. Seriously - it is so HOT that even their oversized ice cubes are sexy. The vintage memorabilia peppering the dining room plays perfectly against the modern lighting and chef-inspired eats. And the view! Killer. Again, all we can think to say is "sexy."
What to Drink/Eat: Go with friends and figure out a way to eat it all. If that fails, you can't go wrong with the bacon and squash risotto or…

We've been saying it, you've been reading it, and the numbers back it up: Denver boasts one of the strongest housing markets in the country and is one of only a handful of true seller's markets.
A quick market snapshot, courtesy of the Denver Metro Association of Realtors:
- On average, a single family home sold for just under $254,000 in December of 2011, and in December 2012 that average rose to almost $290,000.
- The number of homes on the market, which in December of 2012 was the lowest since 1998, has driven up sale prices.
- In November and December of 2011 the number of homes sold or under contract outnumbered the number of homes available.
- Inventory of single family homes in December of 2012 was down 28% from the previous December.
