Well we are here about a month into living in the country. I am not talking about living in the “sticks” as my friend Greg would call it, but it’s definitely not traffic filled, house on every corner, 6 malls, 5 lane freeways, 4 grocery stores in 8 square miles, 3 major airports, two Starbucks with in a block of each other and a partridge and a pear tree. Colorado living is very simple and relaxing. The highway has two lanes in each direction, I do see tractors on a daily basis, I even had move over for one on the county rd. I am in a suburb but surrounded by corn fields and horses. It takes about 15 minutes to get everywhere. Need to get groceries, 15 minutes, need to get coffee (and mama need her coffee) 15 minutes, want to go downtown, 15 minutes, and by 15 minutes, I mean 15 actual minutes. Not how the long the GPS says it should take you, and then you hit traffic and 15 minutes turns into 30 minutes, like an actual 15 minutes.
David is in his 3rd week of the mini academy, learning all sorts of CO laws and policies/procedures of Fort Collins Police Services. I am in my 3rd week of being a true stay at home mom. Things are a little crazy and I can’t get the house unpacked quite at the speed that I would like, but its coming together. I do drink a little more these days (nope that is not a joke) and I am thinking about getting into martinis. Send me your recipes I would love to try them out.
I have sought out a new venture, I am an independent designer for a company called Keep Collective. I know, I know what you are thinking. ME direct selling, but I am a sucker for charms, what can I say, and I have an amazing leader. I am about a month in and I absolutely love it. Keep Collective is a collection of ONE-OF-A-KIND, interchangeable Keepers (bracelets,& pendants) and Keys (charms). Each one is a wearable touchstone, an instant reminder of the big things, the small things, and all the things that matter. I will be posting a Keeper of the day picture.
