As I type this, we are en route to Boulder, Colorado. We will be spending the next 6 weeks or so in that area, working with my brother's real estate development company. We've had a lovely time in Iowa and Minnesota over the last month, and I promise someday, I will blog about that. After I catch up with Texas...
On our way to Boulder, we'll be stopping to see several friends that are dear to our hearts. John Henry, Denise and crew in Omaha...Denise is cookin' us some amazing eats and we're excited to see where she is now teaching yoga. John Henry is the mastermind designer behind our Live Lightly Tour site, and his company What Cheer! just expanded to new offices! So much to catch up on. In Lincoln, we'll see Kristin, Paul, and Ryan...and their one week old new baby Tyler! We will hopefully with a few other friends from when we lived there in 2002-2004.
Seeing old friends is definitely one of the best perks about having a home on wheels. My parents are also meeting us in Lincoln for a few nights. Oh, and I can't forget that it's our TEN YEAR anniversary on June 17...we'll have to ask Mom and Dad watch the girls so we can go on a real date!
We're really looking forward to our stay in Colorado...for as many of you know, Boulder is city unlike any other. Sometimes referred to as "The People's Republic of Boulder", it's a place that people tend to have strong opinions about. Our opinion? We love it!
- The people are quirky (and I mean that in the nicest way).
- Pearl St. Mall....good people watching and eats. The photo of the fire poi above is one of my favorite Boulder memories from our 2005 visit. There are always wonderful sidewalk performers on the weekends!
- Lots of dreadlocks
- Great farmer's market
- Public transportation and bike paths
- Beautiful mountains
- Thai food -- a whole bunch of it
- Boulder Circus Center...need I say more?! They have hooping classes.
- Yoga studios on every corner (and I bought a Groupon for a free month!)
- 300+ days of sunshine a year!
But most of all...we're looking forward to some quality time with some of our bestest friends, Kris and Natalie and their 3 kiddos. Our friendship goes back to our college days, where Matt and Kris were roommates...and we've experienced A LOT of life with them since then. Whenever we are together, it's like no time has gone by at all...and we cannot wait to bask in that familiarity and love.
I am now booking photography clients in the Denver/Boulder area as well...contact me for current rates and available dates! Hey...that rhymes.
After Boulder, the plan is to head north to Bozeman for a few weeks before we hit the West coast for more redwoods, beaches, and Hoop Camp! New adventures every day...
