Ok that photo is actually from Beaver Creek but close enough right? My little family of 5 is in Denver for the month and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind getting here and getting settled. We all came up as my husband had a job opportunity and it has been a fun adventure for us.
I’ve lived in Dallas for 13 years this August and getting to explore a new city has been invigorating and sometimes a little overwhelming. The kids and I have been running around checking out museums and public swimming pools and over the weekend we took a trip up into the mountains and went on some great hikes. It’s so beautiful here and getting to be outside so much is wonderful. It is hot this week, we didn’t escape the heat wave, but 98 degrees and no humidity feels very different than what I’m used to in Dallas so I’m not complaining!
Going somewhere new and staying for an extended period of time changes the way you think about home. It makes you appreciate things you took for granted and it also makes you think of ways you can change up what’s normal for you and incorporate what you like about where you traveled. We have a week and a half left here and I’m excited to embrace every day and remember what lessons I want to bring back with me to Texas! A little perspective before Chris and I hit our 13 year wedding anniversary and decide what we want the next year together to look like. I’ve been reminded these past few weeks that change is possible and you are allowed to work for what you want out of life. Looking at the picture above I see a good portion of what I want and my thoughts are on how I want to get there.
If there’s anything I have to see while I’m here, with or without kids, let me know in the comments. I feel like I have a pretty good list but I’m up for any more recommendations!
