I drove 1500 miles west from Maryland to my new home in Colorado.
It was a necessary change my entire family needed. Maryland had really became toxic and it was starting to show. We made a relatively snap decision to pack up and head West.
My brother lives in Colorado Springs, so we are currently shacked up in his basement. This is a short term solution until the rest of our lives settle out. I should get a job, for instance. I am learning that this is not an easy task.
I focus everyday on the steps needed to establish our life here and try to soak in the beauty around us. Already I am very happy here even if the situation is stressful at times.
I am thankful to be living in the shadow of Pikes Peak. I soak in as many sunsets and sun rises as possible and I am looking forward to experiencing winter here.
For now, I look forward to finding my place here and sharing the adventure with you.
