Next articleSpring Cleaning with Kids
Dani is a loud, Italian, New York transplant who came to Colorado for college and never left. It was there she met the love of her life and very best friend and put down roots in Denver. Mama to the wildest almost-2-year old little boy in town, she is a retired therapist (at least for now), works full time as a mom, and works part time as a floral designer out of her home. She’s a home body, loves to cook, and defines cleaning as making sure everything “looks pretty.” Motherhood has pretty much blown all of her expectations out of the water and she’s still trying to figure out where, how, and when to come up for air. Dry shampoo has become a way of life because showers have become nearly impossible. Her husband, houseplants, and life long girlfriends keep her sane on this incredible (and at times, bewildering) adventure.


  1. There’s a large, free community egg hunt at Civic Green Park in Highlands Ranch for children from 0-12. Over 1,000 free grilled lunches are provided, and there are loads of carnival games, face painting, balloon animals, and an Easter Bunny as well. The event runs from 11a – 1p on Saturday, March 26.
