This wasn’t my first time in Colorado, but oh…
How beautiful the mountains all around!

Every morning when we came down to the lobby for breakfast,
the view was spectacular.

I guess people who live here are pretty much used to it
and don’t pay much attention to it…
But I couldn’t take my eyes off the beauty!  🙂

When I lived close to the Smoky Mountains,
I never got “used” to it.

Every time I went outside, I couldn’t help but smile.
The fall colors!  The Spring!  The summer greens!
It didn’t snow except maybe twice a year,
but everything looked so beautiful!

During the week in Colorado,
the temperatures were pretty cold (at least for me!)
But I walked across the street to a shopping area
where I had lunch everyday.
It was 26* and windy, so I was cold!

I didn’t take my “real” camera with me,
but I managed to get this photo with my cell phone.

I spent the week in a personal prayer retreat during the mornings.
Those times of pulling away from everything
and just being alone with God
was something I longed for.
I feel like it’s “recharging”, literally.

In the evenings, my husband & I got together with friends
for some wonderful times of fellowship.
It was fun and refreshing to spend time with them,
since we rarely get the chance to just relax together
and not be problem-solving or counseling for
serious situations.

It was a blessed time and I’m so thankful I was able to go!

Now it’s back to “real life” but every now & then I remember,
and I just smile.

Happy Thursday, everyone!
