seeing the rockies nowhere but my rear view mirror is heartbreaking. i feel like i'm always leaving the place i most want to be - i told landon that returning to gurnee is like walking backwards...
sorry, what a bad way to start a post. we spent the last 2 weeks in colorado with friends and family and mountain majesty. our schedule was packed with people we love amidst colorado fun. landon climbed 3 14ers (one was a 2-day hike), and we went rock climbing 3 different days. we spent 2 days in durango, one in colorado springs, 4 in Buena Vista and Salida and the rest in Littleton. we saw everything between the NE corner of CO (Sterling) to the SW corner (Durango). IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!
we left CO at 7:45 yesterday morning and pulled into our driveway at 1am this morning. i requested work off at starbucks today (thank goodness!!!) so i'm just catching up on some things here at home and diving into 2 weeks worth of catch-up at ACSI.
contratry to the first few sentences of this post, there is a simple peace about being where we live. It was nice to wake and spend my morning alone - haven't been alone in a very long time. and i woke to a violent thunderstorm with dense humidity and temperatures in the low 70's (quite refreshing after being in 90 - 100 degree temps these last 2 weeks).
Welp, i'll be updating for a few days with pictures from our wonderful trip "home".
