Colorado Bound!

We’re packing up the kids and car to spend a few days in Colorado during our upcoming Spring Break. Sounds fun, right? Unfortunately, we’ll likely be doing more work then play. Why is that, you ask? We’ll be house hunting!

Yep, that’s right. After 7 years in Albuquerque, we’ll be changing things up. I have grown quite content in our house and area (except on the windy days), so it has been a big a stress for me to think about finding a new house to call home.

Stress aside, we’re moving to Colorado this summer for 3 years. Eric has a fantastic opportunity to go back to school for a PhD that we’re not passing up.

I’m excited about an adventure in a new state as long as we can find the right place to call “home.” Send us positive vibes that we’ll find our future home and a family friendly place to settle down in for the next three years.

In the event that we have some extra playtime we’ll we are there, I’d love to hear about your favorite family friendly things to do in Colorado as well as restaurant suggestions for the Boulder area!

Have you been to Colorado? What are your favorite things to do there?

Wow! A blogger for Alb! My husband has family there and I was born and raised in Las Cruces, NM. My husband also has family in Colorado and I highly recommend doing anything outdoors there. It is just beautiful!

We are in Boulder, CO and really love living here. We just bought a small farm in Ft. Lupton and will be starting our journey and blog as we create our homestead/micro farm. I will share as soon as we have our blog up and running. :)

In the meantime, Welcome to Colorado!!!

Boulder area is beautiful and the people there are very accepting, kind, and worldly. Most people that move to Boulder become addicted and attached to the city. Denver is a beautiful city (with a much lower crime rate than Albuquerque), I love the different areas of Denver, there are family friendly areas, areas for singles and younger age groups, areas for retirees, wealthy, average, and low income areas. There are sports, music and theater, it is a greatly diverse city with so much to offer!Born and raised in Colorado, I love Denver!

I also live in Littleton, in the foothills that run North to become the Flatirons. I agree with the restaurant suggestions offered. Grabbing a subscription to 5280 is a good idea--they have great updates on restaurants new and old, and the in's and out's of the greater Metro area. In addition to the Flatirons, Eldorado Canyon (just South of Boulder) has beautiful hiking and you can watch people rock climb which is amazing. All best on your adventure!
