I thought I’d stop by with a little life update for those who have been following along. It’s been 3 full months living here in Denver, Colorado and I will have to say the city is finally wearing on me. When we first moved here I was really missing the comforts of familiar things and all the lovely activities St. Louis has to offer in the summer. I felt “off” for quite a while.
Thankfully, Denver is alive. It’s got a active spirit and when I say active, I am referring to just getting out and about in this city. I think a lot of people hear “Denver” and automatically thing of outdoor sports, snow, and mountains (at least that’s what I thought). Yes, all of those things exist, but I’m finding out that being active also means a really amazing food scene, lots of one-of-a-kind shop/handmade goods, and lots of organized events like festivals/art fairs/farmers markets. These are all the things I loved about St. Louis. So far the only thing I have found to dislike about Denver is how crazy inflated the housing market is. This might mean that buying our first home will take a few more years 🙁
If you’ve visited Denver/Boulder/Vale/Breckenridge…I’d love to hear your recommendations. We are on a mission to explore as much as possible! Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
