Well, I know it's been quite awhile since my last post. I found it difficult to update the blog without having my own computer to work on. I have officially arrived in CO and as the title states, I am loving it! I'll write more about the journey over here later, but for now, I just want to give a quick update and some pictures.
First of all, it has been such a blessing to be reunited with my sweet husband, Phil. One and a half months is a LONG time to be seperated. I know there are many around the world who live without their spouses for months or even years and I do not envy them one bit. We have really enjoyed our time back together and have beening having a fun time unpacking together as a team.
Phil had done a good amount of unpacking in the 2 weeks he had been here without me. (It was actually 1 week because he was in Oklahoma for the other one). However, there were still lots of boxes to unpack and things to organize. The most challenging part of unpacking for both of us is dealing with all of the paper the movers used to wrap EVERYTHING...and I mean EVERYTHING! We have it stacked in our livingroom and it has been packed down again and again. It is presently in 3 piles. We've torn down all the boxes and are storing them for our "someday" move into a house. We have yet to hang any pictures, towel bars etc, but those too will come. For now, it's beginning to feel a lot more like home. Anyways, here are some pics:

Our condo building. The top 8 window's on the right are ours.
Guest room...we're ready for visitors!
Lots to unload...almost done!
After picture. I have a scrapbook/craft/sewing area that I am SUPER excited about. I never had a place where I actually had room to work before. My sister and I have plans to make good use of this space when she moves out here.
