Wild Wednesday- Old Towne Arvada, Colorado

What a wonderful memory we've made here in Colorado again. The thing which fascinates me about this place is that when I first visited it- many years ago- I did not care for it at all. Don't ask me why, I can't really put it into words. It was similar to when you meet someone for the first time and for some reason you just don't 'click'....but then...slowly and ever so surely, as you continue to meet up from time to time you begin to think, "well they aren't as bad as I thought" 

Each new visit to Colorado has caused me to fall in love with the place. There are so many different facets to this wonderful State. I've only seen a bare minimum of it and it never ceases to amaze me.

My newest discovery was Old Town Arvada, Colorado. WOW! What a fascinating place with little shops sprinkled all around. No big time chains here, but quaint personal shops run by owners who love what they are doing. I found myself in a candle shop browsing through home made candles. The owner was quick to welcome me. Neisha, my heart daughter, explained the uniqueness of these particular candles. 

I'm sure there will be many other places I fall in love with here in Colorado on this visit...and many more in future visits. Old Town Arvada is definitely someplace I would recommend to any one visiting Colorado!
