And I’m not talking about the town or the ski resort.

That’s right, friends—for the last few months, I’ve been M.I.A. all because of a man. And, instead of my usual feelings of crippling commitment-phobia, I’m actually reveling in each and every moment (hence the lack of posts of late).

From here on out, I promise to devote a little more time to my Mavenly duties. Until then, here are two feel-good tidbits that you might enjoy:

  1. The new man and I have the exact name—yes, seriously. If you’ve been a Boulder Maven reader for any length of time, you inevitably know my feelings about this particular thing (and no, it’s not the same guy). Looks like the universe was conspiring accordingly and the joke is officially on me. . .
  2. As luck would have it, my wallet went missing on our very first date. After taking the usual precautions to cancel my credit cards, etc., two days later, I received a call at my office from a stranger who had found my wallet in the middle of Pearl Street with all of the contents in tact! Not only did he find my wallet, he drove to the address on my driver’s license (which was inevitably an old address) to try and return it to me. When he didn’t find me there, he found some information relating to my employer in my wallet and tracked me down at work. After all that, he personally delivered the wallet to me and refused to accept any money, lunch, coffee, or even treats for his dog in return. Just another example of why I absolutely love Boulder.

Here’s to pleasant surprises and never saying never. . .over and out for now.

The Boulder County Farmers’ Market is in full swing and the getting is good! While the market has been open since April 4th, the full gamut of produce is finally available, which includes amazing cherries, peaches, and veggies galore. Combine the shopping and people watching with the yummy food court picks (Amaizing Corn Tamales and Pupusas are tied for my current favorites) and you have the perfect Saturday morning excursion.

Whether Saturday mornings from 8-2 or Wednesday evenings from 4-8, there’s no better time to get out there and love, love, love the local.

Only in Boulder, Colorado can you pull off a “Bike to Work” event on January 21st. That’s right friends, tomorrow is Boulder Winter Bike to Work Day 2009–rain or snow or shine. You may be amazed to know that the city of Boulder plows all 200+ miles of bike paths on each and every snow morning. (They flounder when it comes to plowing the streets, but at least they’ve mastered the paths.) The forecast calls for sun and 70 degrees(!), so you can cruise to your heart’s content.

Like the summer counterpart, tomorrow’s event will inevitably feature prizes, breakfast stations, and lots of beautiful Boulderites.
