Well hello! And Merry Christmas!
I couldn't think of a more appropriate first blog post than one about the holidays.
Seeing as I currently live in Chicago, I was not able to spend turkey day with my family, so I am extra glad to be able to be here for Christmas! I grew up on the border of New Mexico and Colorado...are you picturing it? Beautiful mountains and greenery with a dash of sand thrown in and rivers running through to wrap it all up? Yeah, that's where I'm from. I do like the city, and know that it is where I am meant to be for now, but at heart I am really just a mountain girl looking for a hill to climb or some mud to roll around in.
I flew in to Colorado yesterday and have a WHOLE WEEK here which doesn't feel like it's enough time but will have to suffice because it is a much needed trip right now. I am very close with my two sisters and my parents, so getting to actually see them and hug them and kick them in the booty is really nice.
Today I woke up and hung out with my fam and my cats for a bit. I then went with my best friend of 10 years to eat and have our nails done and laugh way too hard about the bizarreness of life. GET THIS- someone has created a fake Instagram account pretending to be me! They have been posting pics of me acting as me since October...weirdos.
It is quite chilly here now and not as lovely as it is in the summer or spring. Or maybe it is just a different kind of lovely. Here are a few photos I've taken on trips home (not all are recent) to give you an idea of where I come from. Hope you all enjoy!
