When Don told me we would be heading to Fort Collins in Colorado, I was excited.
- For months, I had been telling him we needed to take a break from work and travel.
This was once our favorite pastime when we got together. In fact, Don and I met on the road when we had both gone hiking. We soon became friends, and things progressed when we realized we lived in the same area. However, life has changed, and it’s been 5 years of total chaos in our household. This is why this trip to Fort Collins made me so excited. I had told him about this amazing city situated in northern Colorado. Not many people know this, but this is a place full of so much history and historical places to visit. I once read an article by a travel blogger detailing her experience traveling to Fort Collins one summer and I immediately added it to my bucket list. When Don said we would do something this summer, I told him about what I had read and sent him a link so he’s also read up on it. Well, I think he did and began to plan a surprise for me because he knew we had to take a break from work, the kids, and all that our lives demanded. Since it’s summer, Don made sure to rent out an airbnb with an air conditioner to keep us cool and comfy. Though it was hot, we had a great time, and I particularly enjoyed this outdoor concert one summer evening during our trip.
