    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers." Keith Meldahl Happy one week anniversary, you cuties.

shopping with baba.

DSCN5514DSCN5518
once every week or every two weeks for the past few years i would take my baba out for the afternoon and we would go shopping.

in just a few hours, we would always manage to go to at least four or five places. our second last stop was always to get groceries, saving our last to be a coffee date. she and i would always get the same meal, which must have looked very funny given that we are nearly the same height, with the same haircut, and eating the same food. i always joked to her that we were twin sisters, and she would reply that i acted more like her mum since i took care of her when we went out together.

last month my baba had a heart attack and since then everything has changed. we will no longer be having these shopping trips of ours. this makes me incredibly sad but at the same time i am so relieved that the outcome of what happened to her was not fatal!

this post is in honor of my baba. i love you. :-)

  1. This post is so sweet. I lost my own “baba” one month ago and I think about all her and all the memories everyday. Loss is hard – no matter it’s an older person or young. Unfortunately, we can’t keep our loved ones forever.
