made it!

we're finally here! the drive to colorado didn't actually take that long, but between all the windy mountain roads and a nice dose of denver traffic right at the end, i was SO ready to get out of the car when we got here.

colorado is fine so far. our apartment is definitely the nicest place we've ever lived. however i'm not sure how i will survive the summer without DVR or a water purifier. [just kidding...kind of.] we're in a super nice part of town, just down the street from some seriously fantastic shopping & dining. tonight we drove around a bit to get our bearings and ended up getting a few things at super target...which is about a mile from home and AMAZING. i didn't think i could ever love target more than i do, but this one is just indescribable. it's like a high end super target. do those exist?

so, we're safe and comfortable and happy. but i'm feeling a little clingy and i think b doesn't feel completely settled either. this is a fun adventure for us but i just feel...a little out of my element, on this first night in a brand new place. can't wait till this place feels like home. does that make sense? maybe i just need to go to sleep. or read some blogs so i feel like i still have friends.

We're always going to be friends! :) Glad you made it ok. Can't wait to see you guys again. Orchard Creek is going to be lame without you!

I'm so glad you made it! Denver is so fun, just enjoy it!

Do you still need doctor info? I dropped the ball on that one. Sorry!

Congrats on the successful move. I want to see pictures, especially since this is where baby dub will be living the first months of his life! New adventures are interesting because they are exciting, but then when the reality sets in...they are actually pretty scary. AND, you've only lived in familiar places like Utah and CA up to this point, so this is quite different.

I hope this place feels like home quickly. The nice apt, super target, and good shopping sure helps though!

So glad to find out of FB you made it. I still can't believe I know right where you are! To bad or lives didn't cross paths when we were both there... does that make sense? Call me if you have any questions if I don't know the answers I know plenty of natives that will. I do know where all the food and shopping is. You have one of the best malls just around the corner. Great food. And like you said Super Target. What more can you ask for?? Good luck.

Adventures are fun - you settle in quicker than you think, lots of fun new stuff to do and see, and then it's hard to leave (: How long will you be there? Is it a summer internship? HAVE FUN!!!

Don't worry, L, you have LOTS of friends who are cheering you on!!! I'm glad you made it safely there and even discovered a sweet Super Target. YAY! Don't worry, you'll feel more comfortable in a week or two. What a fun summer you've got ahead of you!!!
