So, how does your morning compare?
Riley did love dancing the night away the Paris clubs—sometimes with Josh—and coming to Colorado is a huge change for him. His mornings used be filled with crusty baguettes, rich butter and a huge café au lait.
He thought he’d be working in Aspen, which has its share of night life, rich and famous visitors and some of the best restaurants West of the Mississippi. But that didn’t work out as expected.
Now Riley’s working as the cook at a remote ranch where he can see the Rockies from his bedroom window. Not a bad view at all. It’s a better view when Colby Zane’s arms are wrapped around him. Colby’s got some nice scenery too, so Riley doesn’t mind getting up early before he has to start baking bread for the ravenous ranch hands and the guests.
I happen to love fresh pastries in the morning. I used to live a couple of blocks from one of the best bakeries in town and I’d reward myself for a brisk walk around the lake with a brioche or something flaky and rich. I never thought much about the staff who get to the bakery at five every morning to make sure the goodies are fresh and delicious when they open the doors at seven.
