It all hit me in the past couple of days. I cannot wait to live Colorado. Yes, being an Army family we might only be there a couple of years but I will soak it all up. No offense to any of my web friends, but I never wanted to live in Louisiana. Yes, I love the cuisine-so happy that it’s crawfish season-and I’ve made some awesome friends, but Louisiana is not my cup of tea. Colorado IS my cup of tea.
I visited Colorado for a week or so right out of college. My then boyfriend and I drove from Alabama to Estes Park, CO in 2 days and then we explored the town and the National Park. I fell in love with the state. I still remember the peacefulness that came over me as we drove in and saw the mountains. I remember the people, the food, the beer, the snow (in JUNE!) and everything. I fell in love. Right then and there I knew that one day I wanted to live in Colorado. I never could’ve predicted that it would be with an Army man and our zoo.
The other morning, walking to the car it hit me-I would rather be temporarily homeless and jobless in Colorado than stable and fine here. I know that we can find a home there-have a great lead on a rental (thanks Brittany!) if we can’t buy. I know that I can get some sort of job there to supplement the on call job that is waiting for me.
I know all of this, but sometimes I forget.
The important thing is that I am getting to live out a dream of mine AND it’s with the most wonderful man in the world.
