No Labor Allowed!/I’m Sorry.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  Okay, now that’s out of the way.

When I first started writing this blog, I did two things.  I a) apologized in advance for what I was sure would be a failed experiment in trying to post regularly, and I b) made that apology look unnecessary by posting virtually every day for like a week.  Like it was all a dirty lie.

Well, listen.  I’m trying, OK?  Every once in a while (read: very often), life gets in the way and I just don’t feel quite interesting enough to be pushing my life/thoughts/photographs/recipes/jokes on other people.  However, I’ll try to include a little bit of all of those in this post to make up for it.  While still keeping it short, because let’s face it, I’m TIRED.

Not low-stress activities, exactly.

However, we’ve had some other stuff going on in preparation for our big move tomorrow (YAY!), and here is some of that stuff in the form of a picture essay.  Wahoo!

We’ve been hanging with the doggies:

Colorado: Initial Impressions.

The title of this blog post could suggest that this is my first time in Colorado.  Conversely, this is my third time out here in the past three years alone, with five or six other trips dotting my childhood.  (There were some VERY harrowing skiing experiences early on in high school that left me fairly sure where I stand on the “professional athlete scale”.  The answer is mildly depressing).

But now that I’ve been in Denver for two weeks (which admittedly is different to the People’s Republic of Boulder, where I’ll be living as of next week, so bear with me, or don’t, but I’m allowed to change my mind!!!!), I’ve had a pretty good amount of time to start sussing out my surroundings.  The following is a list of my very observant, witty, and often overly generalistic impressions of my new home state.
