i have said a few times over the past few weeks, it would have been really easy moving if the place you lived was kinda crummy...but we really have luved so much about colorado. it is, of course, the state that brought cam & i together...where we met over on the western slope in grand junction at mesa state college. colorado has been "colorful"...it has given us opportunities and beautiful memories that we will always hold near and dear.
i will miss my sister, jessica, and my sweet mo-jo and beau-beau man!
cousins...forever friends!
here's to a new chapter..."life elevated!"
my dad said it perfectly when we arrived in utah..."who says you can't come home?!" after 12 years, it's an amazing, peaceful feeling to be back closer to more of my family and closer to cam's family. we are renting a little house in highland...it's on a half acre and the girls & dog are luving it! the house needed a little cleaning, plug-in's :), and personal touch and cam & i were in awe as our family out did themselves...cleaning blinds, hanging pictures, moving boxes, lining cabinets, helping me purchase washer & dryers (since cam had to go back to colorado for the rest of the month), my aunt dani came and whipped me up some beautiful drapes, and my uncle johnny went room to room changing out light fixtures that my dad bought for us to brighten things up! not to mention neighbors that brought me dinner, fresh sour dough bread, zucchini bread, open access to their trampolines & cats to play with, and instant neighbor friends for my girls! im missing cam, but im luving that i can walk 5 blocks to my sister emily's and my sister lindsey & mom are less than 10 minutes away...plus i have my handy dad, my second husbands - lol - my fab brother in laws, matty & chris. i luv you guys. thanks a million!
