“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.” — Anatole France
Moving out of this apartment in like 5 days. I’m so excited for what the future holds, but I’m definitely trying to soak up the Denver life as much as possible before parting ways with this beautiful city in less than two weeks! I know I’ll miss her while I’m gone.
Final day in Denver has been a very chilled one. So pleased we were able to eat our last meal in the city at Work & Class, eating lamb, beef brisket and goat! Amazing food. I love this city so much, but am now ready to explore some more of this wonderful state. Breckenridge, here we come!
I love Denver. Like so much that if you found a way to move my whole family out here, I’d flee the east coast tomorrow. The weather, the people, the urban design, the biking!! I could go on....We came out for my husbands conference which meant I had ample time to cruise 🚲 around checking out one of my favorite cities. ((Denver makes seeing their streets so easy- the bike rental system is so fun and comprehensive. I biked everywhere and saw practically the whole city! And unlike out east, you don’t feel like you’ll be smoked by an angry city driver at any given moment- the roads are open and bike friendly)) At this point in my life- juggling 2 little children, painting, marriage, home, etc- time is a treasured gift. I want to do and make so many things and sometimes the weight of time pushes on me. Like for all of us, life is busy and many of my sketches remain just that- sketches. Sometimes, even at 40, I feel like I’ve just scratched the surface of my creative potential. I had two full days of space- figuratively and literally- to reflect, wander, see. I was so inspired by my time here- I leave this awesome city inspired, a little rested, and wanting to make some cool shiz. Way to go Denver- I give you a big bear hug💋•
