G and I were babies when we met you: 20-something fiancés, ready to take on this new adventure.
You have been a place we loved to call home.
You healed the past and gave freedom through forgiveness.
You welcomed us home, with open arms, when our time with you wasn’t yet complete.
You were present in some of the most challenging times, as I stepped into the world as a wife and a mother.
You helped me find my voice in teaching and my stance for being in service.
You have inspired me and intimidated me all at the same time.
You called me to the mountains when it had been too long and I needed the force of nature to slow down.
You encouraged me to do the things that were uncomfortable, so I could have the space to step into growth.
You connected me to some incredible, honest, beautiful and true friends.
You helped me find appreciation for the simple things.
You created a home for our family.
You reminded me of my connection (and all of our connection) to nature.
You lit the love within my veins for hiking and exploration.
You opened my eyes to a more healthy body, mind and spirit.
You taught me what it meant to be humble, grateful and human.
You held me up and gave me permission to discover a deeper version of Self.
These past eight years, I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
I love you Colorado. You are beautiful. Your impact is as grand as your Rockies. Goodbye for now.
