    Photos: the sweet smells -- and tastes -- of the Colorado Chocolate Festival

    I'm officially a few pounds heavier today -- and it's not because of my Mother's Day stomach crush at Paxia (which was excellent, by the way).

    Reader: Thanks to the Kloewers for brightening the holidays

    ​For almost three decades, the modest Kloewer house at 4990 South Elati Street has featured an outsized holiday light show -- a favorite annual sight, as Susan Froyd describes here. But after this year's display, the family is pulling the plug for good on January 5.
