"Wherever you are, be all there." - Jim Elliot
Colorado was that breathe of fresh air I was looking for.
I had never been to the state before but my sister moved from New Orleans a few months prior. I bought my ticket knowing for sure that I would love it. My Colorado themed Pinterest board was poppin so I was more than ready to see all of the well known sights. What I wasn't prepared for was to have my eyes wide open the entire time. I honestly didn't have time to blink, there was literally too much to see. Driving through hilly towns surrounded by snowcapped mountains isn't something a Florida girl gets to do very often.
Sometimes, while visiting a new place, I feel this tiny bit of sadness inside knowing that I'll eventually have to leave. I'll have to go back home, commit back to routine while this beautiful place lives and thrives... without me. Why can't I be in multiple places at once!? I don't understand why I can't yet teleportation isn't "a thing" yet.. Is someone working on that?
While I work on being more present, here's a little photo journal of my experience in the mile high state.
