In just a few days hubs and I are taking our very first long road trip together! The farthest we’ve ever driven together is about 5-6 hours. But soon we will be headed from Houston to Colorado!
Hubs has never been to my home state and I am so excited to go exploring with him! It’s been at least 5 years since I’ve been back. I miss my grandparents, I haven’t seen them since. I’ve seen the ones on my dads side, but not on my moms side (the ones that live in Colorado).
I am just so excited for when we will be able to start seeing the Mountains! The town I grew up in was at the base of the Rocky Mountains. We didn’t always go up hiking, but just the fact that you would see them every single day… I miss that so much. I don’t miss the snow, not at all, but I miss those gorgeous mountains. I plan on taking a million pictures…
That is the view I grew up with. There is the lake in the center of town, and I always lived just a few streets over from it, and at one point, just across the street from it.
Hubs and I are going to take our bikes, and I know we are going to put lots of miles on them this trip.A bike ride around a lake with that view every morning? Yes please! Plus there are so many parks, and art throughout the city. There is one park that is just a sculpture park. We used to go walk and play through there as kids all the time.
So this week I am cleaning, working, doing laundry, making lists, and packing! So this week y’all will get to see tips for packing, road trips snack ideas, and my outfit for the 4th of July!
I’m so jealous of your view in CO! I also grew up at the base of mountains (in SC) and I miss seeing them in the distance. I appreciate it so much more now when I visit home!
Can’t wait to see you!!!
