Way back when, I posted about Scott and I taking a much needed vacation.
We were going to travel to Boulder and hang out for a few weeks.
I wasn’t completely honest with you in that post. It is true that we were going to go on vacation, yes. But that wasn’t all.
Our trip to Colorado was also going to be a scouting mission to find a new place to live.
Scott and I are moving to Colorado.
We ended up not going on vacation this year and decided to save that money for the big move.
It wasn’t a matter of “do we want to move to Colorado” because the decision is made. We are moving to Colorado. More specifically we are looking for someplace between the Denver and Boulder area.
Since that was the case, for us it made more sense to just move verses driving out, staying, driving back, and then putting the house up for sale.
Also I’ll be honest, once we got out there I know we wouldn’t have wanted to drive back to Ohio. That would have been a long and sad drive back!
So all the cryptic messages I’ve been posting about doing house work and big projects and so on, that was us updating the house to get it ready to put up for sale. It was a lot of work but we reached that goal! Now we just have to sell the house.
Sorry for being cryptic, I tend to get nervous that I’m going to jinx things if I talk about it too early. That’s the only reason I kept this on the down-low for so long. Only a few people knew and that’s how I wanted it to be.
And I’m going to address this now before anyone asks about it.
Sadly, Rocky will not be making the trip with us. He unexpectedly passed away in May. I didn’t say anything because it’s a hard thing to go through and Scott and I wanted to grieve and deal with this privately. He was our baby and we miss him very much. Please, I ask you, let’s not focus on the past but instead look towards the future and to new adventures.
This will be the biggest move that Scott and I have ever made and I would love to hear your feedback!
