We’ve known we were moving to Colorado for over a year and have been anticipating it ever since. North Carolina has been a delight and all, but we are nomads in need of a change of scenery! We’ve literally been packing for months in the hopes we would get out of here sooner than later. I forget what it’s like to not have to shimmy around boxes to get around. I also have been wearing the same 6 outfits for a month, but I’m not sure if that’s because clothes are packed or I am lazy and only fit in 6 outfits right now.

Also, I am ready to escape the suffocating heat and humidity. Ask me again in 6 months how I enjoy the snow.
