I still can't believe that this breathtaking place is our new home: from frozen lakes, to snow-covered peaks, to elk wandering through the foothills. The fact that we can just take a short drive from our cozy little apartment to the most incredible mountains I've ever seen is still blowing my mind.
I won't lie, despite my excitement about the move I was low key terrified of moving to this new place without my family and friends close by. But after wandering into Rocky Mountain National Park, that fear began to melt away and was taken over by the desire to explore the unknown and adventure in this amazing backyard of ours.
Being away from Atlanta has most definitely made me appreciate my lovely city even more, but at the same time I couldn't be happier that we decided to take this big risk and move out into uncharted territory.
The crazy thing is I had never even visited Colorado before we moved here, which if you know me doesn't sound at all like something I'd normally do. But I've come to the realization lately that if you don't act on your fear and live in discomfort you're not really living to your fullest potential. So this is me pushing myself to do something that I know is good for me but that scares the living shit out of me at the same time.
