I've had a great time with family and friends during our seven months in Colorado. I spent a lot of my time enjoying the abundance of breweries in the Denver Metro Area. I got inspired to start blogging about it and I will be continuing on with it covering the craft beer scene in Florida.
While we were in Denver there were many things I missed in Orlando. Now that we are headed back I'm excited knowing I get to enjoy them again.
I've been able to get out and take in the beauty of nature in Colorado, but I really miss the palm trees, lakes, birds, wildlife and the wonderful scent of Florida.

I miss my favorite neighborhoods. I love riding my bike over to Audubon Park and enjoy the local flavor. Grabbing a treat at Blue Bird Bake Shop, a beer at Redlight, the Monday night market or goodies at East End Market.

One thing I missed a lot of was my friends. I'm lucky to have wonderful people in my life. I look forward to catching up with them and having a good time doing some exploring in Orlando together. It's always fun to enjoy beers on the patio with friends at Barley & Vine or Tap & Grind. I'll be quite happy to get back to Oblivion Taproom and enjoy a tasty burger to go with my beer.
I look forward to exploring some of my favorite parks again. There's nothing like a stroll around Lake Eola or a run through Blue Jacket Park. A visit to Dickson Azalea Park is always nice for the mind. It's quite peaceful to watch the wildlife at Harbor Park .

I've missed the brisket at 4 Rivers Smokehouse and the Panini's at Hot Krust Panini. I can't wait to bike over to Cask & Larder for Happy Hour or enjoy sushi on the patio at Seito Sushi. I'm looking forward to some of Sister Honey's German Chocolate Cake and a hot fudge sundae at Lu Lu's Ice Cream Shop

While I can't wait to do all things local I'm looking forward to day trips to Walt Disney World. I love being able to stop by for the day and enjoy some rides or a stroll through Epcot. Many happy memories there and I look forward to many more.

There's nothing like being able to take a drive to the beach for the day and enjoying the sunset. The Rocky Mountains are amazing, but I'm a beach person all the way.

I'm excited to see what it new in town. I've tried to keep up with the new restaurants, bars, shopping and attractions. I love that Orlando is a small big city with so much to see and do and all the while keep the community feel about it.
Orlando I've missed you and I can't wait to do some more exploring.
