What are the best and worst things about living in Colorado (I've always wondered if I'd love living there)?
Hands down, the best thing about living in Denver is living near my family. My parents are just minutes away, and my sister and her family are about 15 minutes away. I love that. It means lots of last-minute phone calls like "Hey, I'm on my way to the antique store, wanna come along?" or "I made too much food for dinner, wanna come help us eat it?"
It also means when we need a babysitter, the girls are with family.
Other good things? It's beautiful here. We have white Christmases. I look at the mountains every day on the way to school in the morning. It's sunny a lot--even if it's freezing cold. Direct flights to just about anywhere from DIA. Heading to Vail or Breckenridge just for lunch. I have friends here.
Old snow that gets yucky and brown. This time of year when you discover two crocuses blooming in the backyard and then you see the forecast for 5 inches of snow tonight. Wearing a heavy, heavy coat and snow boots with your Easter dress--or worse, a turtleneck underneath your Easter dress. No ocean.
So the good far outweighs the bad--I pretty much LOVE living here!
My dad just emailed me this picture from Saturday morning...see what I mean?
