Leaving Colorado

There is such a bitter sweet taste from this move. Colorado has been our home for 14 years. We love it here. We love to camp and hike and hot springs. (well the kids love to hot springs). We love the mild weather, although more rain would be good. We love being close to my sister Diane. I love our school community and friends. I love my book club. I love the yoga community. We love living in a place where we can walk to stores, restaurants and bars. That is why we are renting out our home, instead of selling it. I want to be back here someday. I want to live in my own house. I want to enjoy the front porch again. We have had a great adventure here. The time has come for our next adventure.  We are off to visit family in Illinois
