Home. A great place to be. Following a whirlwind summer of travel for weddings, family visits and a bit of work, I am finally H.O.M.E. from now until Thanksgiving. For those of you still reading Lex & Learn, thanks for putting up with the inconsistent posts the last few weeks. Lack of planning and utter exhaustion at the start of each week has really killed my creativity and desire to log back onto a computer after dinner each night.
Don’t get me wrong, every trip has been amazing and I feel very lucky that I can take advantage of this time in our lives to pick up and go. Aside from getting Kona to Mike’s parents or the kennel, we have no worries or major responsibilities. This fact isn’t lost on me and I am grateful.
But I also feel like I blinked and summer was over. We started out strong with two fourteener hikes and then I never put on my hiking shoes again. I only went camping once (plus a failed attempt at backpacking) and never made it to Sunday’s concerts in the park in City Park. We didn’t ride bikes or have a boozy brunch day with friends on a Sunday. I never attended our local farmers market and did not get to take a drive to see the fall colors in the mountains. I flew over the colors a few times though, and the trees looks spectacular.
The next month however is a wonderful month to be home. Ski season is still a few weeks away, which means we can buckle down on house to-do’s AND enjoy Denver a little bit. I am hoping to pick one Denver destination, such as a museum, and carve out time on a Saturday to venture out in our great city. I also want to recruit Mike’s sister Kelly to help me with a fall and/or Christmas craft since this will be the first year I have a house to decorate! I love the holidays.
So here’s to blogging more, slowing down, enjoying Denver and continuing to turn our house into a home. It is good to get away, but it sure feels divine to be back.
