Are You Kidding Me? We Get To Live Here?!

So, we had an eventful weekend to say the least. Blake and I went to Denver to look at houses and decided that we are going to be very happy there. Besides the heartache of leaving our precious family and friends, it's a great area and has so much to offer. The mountains really do speak for themselves. It's simply beautiful. And, the weather is wonderful. I actually had to go home and change one evening because it got chilly just before dinner and I needed a sweater. We loved that!

We are hoping to live in Littleton. It's a gorgeous area at the foothills of the mountains. And, we learned that it's less than an hour from the closest ski resort!

We really liked the Denver area, too. 16th street has a wonderful downtown feel very much like the Fort Worth area that we love so much. It has great shopping and dining and will be a ton of fun come Christmas time. They have horse drawn carriages that the boys will love! So, we couldn't be happier in regards to where we're going. A few photos....

This is the highway that takes you to Littleton. What a drive!


Downtown area.

And that's just a taste of Colorado! Besides the smog, it is a great place to live. Couldn't get more beautiful!!!! Belinda & Ryan live off Broadway and Wildcat Reserve (C-470 & Broadway exit). It is a nice place, but 45 minutes from me:( Your grandmother thought you two would get along great, so maybe now you can get to know each other. Let us know next time your in town and we'll go to dinner.

Hi, Linda! We can't wait to meet the rest of the family. I was in town for less than 48 hours, so it was a quick trip. I'll let you know the next time we're coming in. We loved the short time we had there, though! Gorgeous!
