Yes, you read that right. My entire life, I had no interest to ever moving to the state I love most, Colorado. Growing up in Western, NY, I convinced myself I would never leave its beautiful rolling hills. That was until I met my husband. Back when he was still my boyfriend and we were in my sophomore year of college, he told me, “I quit college and I’m joining the Army.” I was DEVASTATED. However, little did I know, just how my life has transformed since my husband joining the military.
The first destination was to Louisiana, my husband’s first duty station. Fort Polk. Some call it the armpit of the Army, I call it absolutely fascinating. When we lived in Louisiana, it was a complete culture shock. It was in Louisiana, I found a love for bbq, crawfish, and expanded my love for photography. On weekends, we used to love going to Toledo Bend to go fishing while the alligators swam underneath our canoe. Occasionally we would drive the 4 hours to Houston for the day and discover what Texas had to offer. Eight months into being at Fort Polk, my husband re-enlisted again for Fort Carson, Colorado. The state I had no interest in living in, that was until I moved here.
Never in my life experienced the Colorado Rocky Mountains. As my plane landed in Denver, the song “Rocky Mountain High” by John Denver played in my head over and over the entire drive to Colorado Springs. From that moment, I never wanted to leave. You have not lived until you see the Rocky Mountains! I’ve always appreciated nature, but Colorado’s Rocky Mountains take it to a whole new level. No picture will ever do it justice, no matter how many pictures I take.
