As most of you know I spent all of last week in Colorado. Since my mom and I had to be in Denver for work, we decided to take a couple extra days to enjoy a small town named Frisco. It was terrific. I fell in love with that small town as it taught me many valuable lessons….
1. Humidity is crucial to my life, my hair, my skin, my nose, and my overall well being. I will refrain from sharing the details, just know, I now appreciate walking out of my house and feeling like I need to take a shower again.
2. Walmarts exist with gorgeous backdrops. And I mean backdrops so gorgeous even Glamour Shots can’t afford them. But for serious. Who knew that even a Walmart could be pretty?!
3. Speaking of Walmart, did you know you could buy oxygen and ski tickets at this super high superstore?! Yes, I said oxygen. And to be completely frank, I meant Oxygen!?! It must be so rare and hard to find at this altitude that Walmart has to take advantage of this and profit off our our need to breath. Here on the east coast, oxygen floats around freely for anyone to enjoy.
4. Sleigh rides are awesome. Especially sleigh rides to dinner, when cowboys greet you with peppermint schnapps and serve you dinner. See more about this fun event here. And if you are even in Frisco, I highly recommend this costly evening. Worth every penny.
Icycles Iciles Icicles are bigger than 5 inches in some parts of the country! Who knew?! We have yet to see an icicle in Virginia this year. They are so rare here I don’t even know how to spell them. Nor does my roommate. It’s a really silly word actually. I-C-I-C-L-E-S. Silly right?
So there ya have it. Five days of solid work aside, I learned eight very important things that can all be summarized with this: I belong at sea level. Now don’t get me wrong – The Blue Ridge Mountains have NOTHING on The Rockies as far as height, beauty and buffalo go. But my heart lies in Virginia. A state where we have mountains with reasonable temperatures, beaches for the bums like me who want a hobby that doesn’t involve
flying snow plowing down a mountain, and humidity for those who need a little volume without product. Traveling is always awesome, but it’s good to be home.
