1 | I bought some succulents last week after the best friend had convinced me they make for a happier and healthier home. Plus, I think this one is so very cute. :)

2 | My first week in Colorado proved to be a doozie. We had rain, flooding, hail, and snow. I guess Colorado thought I should experience it all right at once.

3 | After all of the crazy weather, we finally got to see those beautiful blue Colorado skies I'm so used to.

4 | I dropped my mom off at the Denver airport and my heart sank telling her goodbye. This is my first time moving away from Tennessee in a way that feels more permanent and it has been really hard. I'm really thankful she was able to spend an entire week in Colorado with me and can't wait for the next time I'm back home.

-- I want to live on "bestie row".
-- Back yard tours.
-- Magic hour is my favorite time of day.
-- Yummy drinks for spring.

I'm so glad you made it. I hope the move went well and you are settling in. That is wonderful that your Mom was able to spend the first week with you! I'll say some prayers for you that the transition goes well.

I know the feeling of moving far from home and feeling like you'll never return! Thank the lord for airplanes! I hope you'll see your mama again soon!
