colorado sunset

last week b went out of town for a gaming convention [did you know hot pockets sponsors a professional halo team? did you know there WERE professional halo teams?? i learn such interesting things from this internship] so i was on my own for a bit. it sucked.

he got home on saturday night so after i picked him up from the airport we drove down to castle rock to have dinner and check out a sweet outlet mall -- sort of like the park city outlets, but BETTER. it was so relaxing to just walk around and shop and chat; i felt like we were on vacation, but we were only 10 miles from home.

it rained a bit while we were inside and when we came out there were huge clouds all over the place -- colorado sky is really big. we drove home at sunset and it was the most beautiful ride ever.

it was just one of those nights where i wanted to freeze time. i was so happy to have b home, and we'd had a fun date night, and we listened to the beatles, and the sky was AMAZING. i just felt really happy to be alive.

I love how nature has a way of doing that...of making you feel all peaceful and happy to be alive. I'm happy b is home too. I'm also happy my husband isn't a member of a professional halo team. Talk about laaaazzy couch potato.

"colorado sky is really big" - So true. It seems a lot bigger in Colorado than anywhere else.

Glad your date night was fun!

4 weeks to go!!! So excited for you!
