Colorado Bound

{Photo from Derek's mission to Colorado Springs. June 2004-June 2006}
Today Derek packed up the car and headed West from Washington D.C. to one of his favorite places on earth. Colorado has always held a special place in his heart ever since serving his LDS mission there. This time around, he will be completing a clerkship at a hospital in Denver and he couldn't be more excited. When we initially packed up our apartment in Arizona, I mistakenly placed an old Parker Colorado 2006 Stake Directory in a box for storage. Faster than the speed of light, or so it seemed, Derek snatched it up and gently placed it in his backpack to carry with him. Looks like this boy of mine really does love this state with the Rocky Mountains as their backyard. 
On another note, any must sees/eats while I visit Denver in a few days?

    1. HA HA! Yes! I'm not sad, it's just some days I miss him a LOT! But, I am grateful that after January 15th, he will be MINE. No more clerkships, no more studying for the boards, interviews will be done. It will be so nice! And then in March, we find out residency and we get to move...again! :) :)
