Colorado and the Beach?

Good tidings and happy 2013.  You may think that I disappeared off the face of the earth but never fear I’m just fine and dandy.  The day after Christmas I moved and have been without internet!  I’m writing you today from the high desert of Colorado Springs, CO. altitude 6,600 feet (that’s 2 miles high boys and girls!) and over 300 days of sunshine per year.  You may be wondering how I ended up in Colorado, well let me explain.

Many years ago I met a wonderful friend on Twitter and over this time we have stayed in touch through good times and bad.  I felt the urge to visit her last October and we instantly clicked – like long lost soul sisters.  Don’t get me wrong, you know I LOVE the beach however the wet winters along the Pacific Northwest coast have really been taking a toll on my middle-age body.  

The sunshine and high altitude of Colorado made me feel more alive than I had in a very long time. My friend just happens to be a life coach too soooooo…..I moved to study with her and live in the sunshine (my husband will be following along shortly).   I know, you probably think I’m nuts but I've always been a person to follow my heart and this is where I’m supposed to be right now.  Denver International Airport is also a great central spot to fly out of.  Denver to Florida! Denver to Maine! Denver to Oregon! Who knows where I’ll visit next.

You may be wondering about our beach cottage.  Our beach cottage is alive and well and will be taken care of by my brother.  Since he is an avid photographer, hopefully we can get him to send us some Washington Coast photos on a regular basis.   My husband and I will be visiting our cottage during the summers when the climate is a bit better on the aches and pains.  

So, this beach girl is living in the desert for now.  It’s been fun and challenging decorating my little apartment (850 sq. ft.) and I still have the beach with me…if nothing else in my heart.

I hope you follow your heart in 2013 and make it a wondrous year!

Until tomorrow,
