Colorado Part II

Today it was back to the grind. After a nice 10 day vacation it was back to work for this girl. On any other occasion I would complain but I am still reveling in my new found freedom. I forgot what it was like to actual have leisure time and not feel guilty about not studying. Can this chick get an Amen?!

Since I have returned from Colorado 2 days ago, I have already finished my post-exam book. Nicholas Sparks got my heart thumping yet again with his book The Rescue. I loved everything about it. Read it... I dare you.

As promised, here is the second installment of my Colorado pictures.

Day 4:
Friday was pretty low key. Mike and I spent the morning running around Denver with dad. By noon he was off to the airport and on his way home. Mike and I had a nice date night that evening to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. I am still shocked typing that. I cannot believe it has already been 5 years since we started dating. Happy Anniversary Michael, I love you!

Day 5:
Saturday was one of my favorite days. Mike and I got up, had breakfast and rented a car all by 10:00am. We then headed off to Colorado Springs to visit the Air Force Academy and the Garden of The Gods. Unfortunately the academy was preparing for graduation so visitors were restricted to where we could visit. But I still fell in love with the school. It was beautiful and I felt proud just being there. The Garden of The Gods was beautiful and I will let those pictures speak for themselves! We finished off the night by going to a Colorado Rockies game. It was so much fun and would you believe it... THEY WON! They wiped the field with the SF Giants.
Day 6:
Good-bye Colorado. A sad day had by all. I was super sad to leave and a little bit uncomfortable after a homeless lady cast some weird voodoo spell on Mike and I. I felt terrible but neither one of us had any cash to offer her and she did not like that. After cussing us out and wishing bad things upon us, we decided to vacate the area and head back to our hotel to prepare for departure.. only to have flights get delayed and not return to Boston until 3 am. It was an extremely long travel day and we were so happy to crawl into bed at 4 in the morning!

My favorite thing we did? Definitely going to see Breckenridge and The Garden Of The Gods.


  1. I would love to see The Garden of the Gods!!! :) Love your pictures.
