Moving to Colorado


I keep telling myself, I’ll pick up blogging again after we move but at the same time, I’m not sure what is holding me back from blogging in my spare time now. I think I’m just at a crossroads here and I’m not sure what it is I want to say. My head is all over the place. One minute I’m excited to move to Colorado. The next minute I’m sad and weepy and can’t stop crying about all the friends and family we are leaving behind and the home I’ve grown to love. It is nine days until we move to Colorado! Nine! That is not a lot of time left to pack up our lives and head to another state to hopefully plant some roots. There’s a lot of goodbyes that have to be made, a lot of things that will be missed, people places….OUR HOME.

This was the home I fell in love with when I first walked through it. I didn’t want anything more or less than this space right here. But God often has other plans for your life and you have to be willing to roll with the punches if you are going to make life worth while again. Things might get tough or sad for a little while, but if you keep putting one foot in front of the other, you’ll get back to where you were again. At least that is my hope. 

I’m nervous to live so far away from the people I know. I’m nervous starting over again. I’m nervous about the 8-hour drive to Colorado by myself with two children. Driving the whole way makes me extremely nervous. I’m nervous about my husband breaking down with our U-haul in the middle of nowhere. There’s a lot to be nervous about, but like I said above, we just have to put one foot in front of the other and keep on keeping on. 

How far away have you moved? How long did it take you to adjust to life in your new surroundings?  How long were you homesick for? I know I will be homesick.

  1. I have moved many times, it’s rough. Having said that, I lived in Colorado for 25+ years, and those mountains still call me ‘home’ every single day, even though I’ve been gone for 10 years. So back I go, for a visit, but it’s the one place, I’ll never truly be able to completely leave. I wish you much luck during your move and hope you get settled in very quickly. Get to know the locals, they are good people. 🙂

  2. Thank you Marie! I’ve traveled through the rockies a few times now. I don’t know how you can’t fall in love. It will be strange, humbling and exciting. Thank you for stopping by! 🙂

  3. That’s a long to time to get used to a place and then move. I know people do it all the time, and I’m sure it’s something I’ll get through and be glad we did.

  4. I moved to Colorado 27 years ago from Virginia (1700+miles). It was an adventure I am glad I took with my husband and new baby. We now have 2 sons (adults now) and this is home and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Good luck to you & yours on your new adventure 🙂

    1. That’s a long way from where you were at. We only moved about 500 miles. I love hearing how people love this place. It will help as time goes on and I start to miss a little bit of home.
