This summer when I was at a country music festival with my good friend and room-mate Joleen (something that we try to make a point to do annually), she shared with me that she had entered into a contest to win a round trip to Denver, Colorado which included a package for two to visit the Red Rocks Amphitheater to see Christina Perri and Jason Mraz while they were on tour there, two round trip airline tickets and a hotel stay. Over the three days that we were together this summer she kept saying that she thought she was going to win...and that if she did that I would be going with her. I laughed and agreed, because there was no way she was going to win...and the timing wasn't that great with my job (with school just having started, etc.), and I haven't flown anywhere in like forever and it's not like I have money to burn (excuses, excuses, excuses). We would go out to eat and would hear a Jason Mraz song and she would say again...I'm going to win Jen! We would be out shopping and would hear a Jason Mraz song and she would tell me to start thinking about packing my bags and I would just laugh. Well, we got home from our country concert (and I promptly forgot all about her entry to the contest)... and low and behold, a couple days later the phone rings and it was Joleen and she told me to pack my bags because we were going to Colorado! She had won! Kind of unbelievable! So here's to an unexpected but much welcomed adventure! Hoping to have some fun pictures to share upon my return.
