Christmas Vacation

This is my last day of Christmas vacation. This year, Derek and I went to Colorado Springs to visit Derek's family. It was pretty fun to see the family. It was also a very nostalgic trip.

Approximately a year and a half ago, I packed all of my earthly possessions into a moving truck in Denver, Colorado. We drove this vehicle across the country to North Carolina. I can say without reservations, that this was one of the best things I have ever done. I have no regrets. Still, Denver and Colorado were home for six years. I grew up in Denver. My first apartment was in Denver and the first time I lived alone was in Denver. Derek and I met and were engaged in Denver. My first fall down drunk moments were in Denver. I fell in love with food in Denver.

When we landed in the Denver I had a little pang. For a second, I felt like I was about to drive home. Home to an apartment that I loved, on Josephine Street just south of downtown. Then I remembered home is actually here, North Carolina.

Our Christmas present to ourselves was a new camera. This means, hopefully, the pictures will start getting better on this blog. It is super fancy, see the pretty pictures...

Is is just me or do colors look brighter with a fancy digital slr camera?

He looks good with more pixels.

  1. Oh Sarah, my Christmas vacation was tinged with home-confusion too! I bet it was weird to fly back to Denver - it's a wonderful place and I miss it often.
    Yay new camera! Cats and food deserve high-quality photographs.
