Today we leave Colorado. Our things are packed and everyone has a calm about them that hopefully carries on once we get home. Our time here has been amazing. The kids have embraced it once again but for the first time they aren’t in a hurry to get home.
Colorado is good for us all. I get asked often why we don’t move here if we love it so much. It’s been discussed, every time we are here the thought crosses our minds, but our family and friends are in Texas. Our home is there. While we love Colorado we couldn’t pick up and move away from our village. That is why we travel so often, to the places that bring us peace, inspiration and allow us to reconnect as a family.
We do come to Colorado more than other places and I think it’s because we fall in love with it more each time we come. We leave a little piece of ourselves in this state. Once we pull away from our rental house we long to be back so we make plans to return as soon as we can. We come alone sometimes and others our family joins us.
We make memories that we will carry with us and recall for the rest of our lives. We want our children to remember coming here with a fondness in their hearts that drives them to bring their children here. And if not here, to find a place that they love and cherish.
This was by far our longest trip, almost 4 weeks. We weren’t sure how the kids would do but we planned it this way so that we could make the most of our time before school started and because we needed to know that we could be away from home for an extended period of time. We have plans to start traveling more often and to different places. Colorado will always be a place we come though. It just holds too big of a place in hearts not to experience it’s beauty at least once a year.
So until next time Colorado. We love you.
