We’re back from vacation. A vacation from work, and I guess from blogging. We went to Colorado to spend time with my family. And in good Colorado fashion there was snow and sunburn weather all in the same week.
Our time was filled with reconnecting with friends, horseback riding, hiking, getting a massage, sorting through old boxes of high school memorabilia (apparently my candle collecting phase was worse than I thought), and taking walks in the Ponderosa Pine forest behind our house with the pug. It was also the last time I’ll see my family before heading to our first post in August, so goodbyes seemed particularly acute.
Sometimes I think I’m crazy for having moved away from the mountains. I’m glad my family is there, so I always have an excuse to go back. And who can stay away from this little guy for too long?
