So far Colorado has been very kind to us. We are both working full time, settled in to our apartment, and taking every chance we get to go somewhere new around Colorado.
This summer we have some trips planned to Glennwood Springs, camping, and hopefully to some music festivals. Summer should be great.
One of the things that I am starting to get used to is finding my way around town. I am directionally challenged and let’s be real, without GPS I don’t know how I would have survived. To me saying if you are lost look to the mountains and you will be facing west means nothing. I don’t think in terms of north, south, east, or west when it comes to directions. But, I know for some people having a solid landmark to find their bearings are helpful.
Some of my favorite places so far are Sprouts grocery store (it is awesome), Trader Joe’s, Smashburger (yes I love it, so good), Breckenridge is great even if you just want to go hang out and not ski, Cherry Creek Pilates (Cherry Creek is an expensive area of town but there is some good window shopping, hello Hermes and Louis Vutton), and hanging out with friends and family.
We have gone to see the Rockies play, which is weird. I am truly a Cardinals fan! However, I love being so close to a major league team. Typically we would drive up to see a game from Little Rock to St. Louis just to see our Cardinals play. In June the Cards will be here playing the Rockies and we are ready to cheer on our team! Even better we can hope on the light rail and ride down to the stadium and not have to fight traffic or park. Awesome y’all!
I think the change has been very good for our little family. We needed a chance to refocus on figure out what we want and what we want to do with our future. It has been amazing what change has brought to us. Colorado was certainly a big change but has been a welcomed one. Thankfully I was able to get a job in my field that will allow me to grow and improve and learn so much more.
Jared is itching to camp and hike! We are just waiting for the rain to clear out around here. Hopefully soon!
