Stapleton may not be on your radar right now, but with its wealth of custom rowhomes, duplexes and single family homes in a gorgeous prairie setting just minutes from Downtown Denver, we think it warrants a second look! Here is what we love about Stapleton...
1. Perfect for families. From the stroller-friendly sidewalks to the great array of schools, it's no wonder that families are flocking to Stapleton.
2. Focus on fitness and the outdoors! Stapleton is full of pocket parks, greenbelts, open space, rec centers, walking/bike paths, community pools, dog parks and playgrounds. We especially love Central Park. This is a place to get your Colorado on.
3. Northfield Shopping Center. We love the outdoor shopping experiences around Denver, and…

We love a new thing, and relative newcomer Local 46 is on its way to becoming a favorite north-side haunt. You may remember the 46th and Tennyson locale as the sight of former super dive bar The Music Box. It has retained the funky feel but cleaned the floors (hooray!), added some "it's so terrible I may need to own it" art and fits with its surroundings like a favorite pair of jeans. Throw in some food trucks and live entertainment like we had last night, and it's a party!
Tavern: Local 46 for cocktails and conversation. http://local46bar.com/
Location: 4586 Tennyson St., between Denver's Berkeley and Regis Neighborhoods
The Atmosphere is: Open, raucous, and kitschy. The outside isn't the most eye-catching - and if we didn't know it was there we…

If Ikea and Room and Board had a baby, and this baby was a restaurant, it would be Trillium. This Scandinavian inspired restaurant in Downtown Denver was nothing short of amazing. I managed to try almost everything on the entree menu by asking for bites of food from my friends under the guise that "I'm writing a blog about it." It was so worth it!
Restaurant: Trillium Denver for brunch, dinner, and happy hour.
Location: 2134 Larimer St., in Denver's Ballpark Neighborhood
The Atmosphere is: Urban, hip, chic, comfortable and just a little loud, letting you know you made the right restaurant selection considering a ton of other people made the same choice! The service was impeccable. Our server knew everything about everything on this complex menu and…

If there was ever a time to buy, it’s now. The Denver real estate market is leading the country in strength and recovery, and mortgage rates are still at a record low. The Mortgage Bankers Association does predict that rates will slowly rise over the next year, but still remain well under the rates of years past.
What does this mean to you, the average homeowner? The current lack of inventory creates a seller's market, but the low mortgage rates help your buying dollars go farther with a new home.
Let’s look at a recent Dwell Denver sale as a case study:
The Combs family bought their first 3 br/2 ba home in Littleton in 2006 for $234,000, and then the market fell. They lived in the property for the next 4 years, making a few improvements but…

Consumer sentiment regarding the housing market continues its modestly positive trend, according to results from Fannie Mae’s August 2012 National Housing Survey.
Supported by the expectation that home prices will rise in the next year and more saying it is a good time to sell, Americans have maintained a cautious but improving view of the housing market and homeownership.
attitudes toward the housing market remain modestly positive, despite
signs of increased concern over the direction of the economy,” says Doug
Duncan, senior vice president and chief economist of Fannie Mae.
So how does this consumer sentiment hold up on our fair city? Well, we have surpassed that sentiment in many ways and we have the market to prove…

"10 Little Piggies"
I was so in love with my own recent staycation that I have decided to make them a staple of everyday life. I may not be able to pull off a childless weekend more than a few times a year, but I can certainly find a few hours a month to pawn the darling boys off on their dad/grandparents/aunts/uncles and reset the gears somewhere fabulous.
This week I decided to explore my new southern digs and check out Old Castle Rock. Two thumbs up to any place with a small town feel, free parking, and easy freeway access.
With 2 hours to call my own, I grabbed a latte at the local Lost Coffee. Funky friendly barista, relaxed atmosphere, solid hazelnut…
