We took our first trip to Colorado this week! We had a blast! It was the first time hubby and I have had a real vacation since our honeymoon, and that was almost 10 years ago! We looked at about a dozen houses, but we can't pick one until our house in Arizona sells first. (It goes on the market this week.) We are so excited about moving to Colorado and feel like it's the best thing we can do for our family! We loved having this week together and we are looking forward to more of it!
Touching Colorado ground for the first time:

One of our roommates was Cooper, the doggie:

Watching the sunset in the neighborhood:
Some of the things I loved about Colorado Springs were how many outdoor activities there were to do and also seeing people actually outside doing things! I also loved the bigger city with more specialty shops and restaurants. I loved the mountains, the fresh air, and the tap water tasted incredible! Mostly I loved that we were together as a family and I really look forward to more of this in only a few more weeks!
This is what my loom room looks like right now... but worse because the boxes have grown even higher since this picture was taken!
Yes, we are moving to Colorado! We are tired of Brian commuting to another state for work. This has been our life for 14 months now, and we are tired of not being together as a family. In order to get the house ready, we have painted, scrubbed, replaced things, cut down trees, weeded like mad, and cleaned out all the closets and paired it all down to just the basics. I plan on turning the garage into a huge storage area so it looks decent for home tours. The house is looking fabulous though, and it makes me wonder why we didn't do some of these things a long time ago!
So instead of yarn pictures, you'll just have to "suffer" through some cute baby pictures and nature shots... for a little while anyway!

Everything is in bloom right now and it's so pretty!
