COLORADO

Wow! So I absolutely love Colorado and all the fun things I have been able to do out here. This past month has been absolutely great and I have met lots of awesome new people. My roommate is awesome and I am enjoying getting to know her. She is currently trying to sell the house we are living in so that we can move into a two bedroom apartment that will be cheaper. We have lots of fun laughing at random crap, making eachother laugh, playing games and eating good food. Tonight I am making spaghetti!! Lets hope I can live up to the masterpieces her and her brother have made in the past few weeks! Her brother has made chicken cordon bleu, pork chops, and buffalo chicken salad. She has made just as many amazing dishes that I can't even begin to think of the name for. I have my own room and bathroom so that has been really nice. I am so blessed to be here and to have the opportunities I have had.
The monday after I got here we went to a Rockies game with her friends who had extra tickets. We even sat in the club seating!! It was a good time for sure.

It has been great to see my extended family so much! I was able to go watch my cousin Shannon play in a softball tournament in Aurora. My cousin Rori goes to CSU Fort Collins and she came down to watch her sister play as well. Considering I don't always get to see them all that often, this was a real treat :)

One of the things that I was most excited about was to go hiking once I got out here, and as you can see that is exactly what I've done! A couple of weeks ago I went to Green Mountain which is just west of Denver and hiked with my friend Stephanie. Then just yesterday I went to hike Devils Peak with people from my ward. It was SOOOOO breathtaking, I can't even describe the beauty I witnessed. Hopefully the pictures will provide some insight!


Over those mountains is Utah! Hello friends!

It is amazing to me how beautiful this country is! What a blessing it is to be able to walk outside and see the nature that God created for us. I was so happy while hiking and loved every minute of it!
