I’m Margaret, a 41-year-old fairly recent Denverite (by way of New York City, Boston, London and San Francisco). This blog started when I quit my high-paying job, turned down the job I quit it for, and paused my successful 16-year career in software to take the road less traveled and document my mid-life “awakening” by way of writing, traveling, eating and drinking. In between cold brew coffee, beer and margaritas, I’m looking for balance, purpose and meaning. This blog is part of my journey to redesign my life and figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

If you’re visiting more for the food and drink recommendations, that’s cool too. In fact, I can curate a perfect Denver day or weekend for you, whether you’re visiting the city for the first time or live here and want to try some new places. Just email me at drinksonthepatioblog@gmail.com with the subject line “Drinks for me.” I’ll ask you a few questions to ensure my recommendations are customized for exactly how you want to spend your day or weekend.
