New Year Intention: Visit Two New States - Colorado


Last weekend, we drove to Colorado Springs to visit my sister, bro-in-law (he wrestles for the army - watch for him at the next Olympics!), and their new little peanut. I am telling you, I know I may be partial, but he is THE CUTEST little man. I am blessed to have many brothers and sisters, and we are all very close. So, it was an awesome experience for me to see my sister as a new mother. We all knew she would make an incredible one. We had so much fun  catching up over some authentic Italian food, walking through the Rockies, and just hanging out. Wish they were neighbors:) Little G was enthralled with the new baby and wanted to give him all his trains (which is a big sign of friendship in his world). Although, he did get jealous when I was holding little JP so it was good practice for the new baby.

This also hits one of my New Year Resolutions (which I like to refer to as goals or intentions) which is visiting two new states! Colorado is breathtaking-if you have been there, you know what I am talking about! Who knows what the next new state will be! 

P.S. Its the last day to vote on the Lovelies Award for IHOD! Would greatly appreciate your vote!!
