    "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.

I have come to realize that I am having a difficult time in grasping just how much has occurred in these past few years. I used take pride in accomplishing a lot in a short amount of time. Looking back now, I feel as if I should have slowed down, and appreciated more of what I had in that moment (namely my naiveté and youth). With my 30th birthday being just around the corner, I am starting to feel my age.

I don’t know if you are in the same boat as I am, but I also feel as if this summer has flown by too quickly. Usually by now, my husband and I have already been on one or two camping trips. However, with the madness of these last few months, which includes relocating my store, our new income property, and Geoffrey soon becoming a full-time student (among other surprises), I have been praying for a bit of sanity to come my way in August. 

We have one big trip planned for the very end of the month. When we return, our lives will continue to change regardless of whether or not we are ready for them to.

Here are my favourite photos from our first trip as a married couple. They were taking only four years ago, but they seem to be part of another lifetime.
