I went to Colorado Springs, Colorado this past weekend to visit my brother and his family. It was his birthday weekend as well as my sister-in-law’s last few weeks in the US before she goes overseas to Afghanistan so my cousins and I couldn’t have picked a better time to go! The best part was getting to spend some great quality time with them, especially my niece/goddaughter, Aaliyah.
The scenery in Colorado is absolutely breathtaking. Every time we drove somewhere, I just stared out the window admiring the sun shining over snow-capped mountains—it so calming. As for the weather, I made sure to layer up because when night falls it gets freeeezing. Even with four pairs of socks on, my toes were still froze!
Overall, I had the time of my life in Colorado. Being the emotional sap that I am, I cried when I had to leave them. I miss my family so much already. Fortunately, I get to come home to the love of my life on our 3-year anniversary and of course, Valentine’s Day . Be on the lookout for a Valentine’s Day post! Back from my eight month hiatus people!
