hello from the mile high city! just wanted to let you all know that i’m here safe and sound in my new home sweet home! we arrived in on sunday morning. that photo above was taken from the parking garage of my new place… it’s strange how the city looks far away but i feel like i’m right in it. i’m right in between five points, the ballpark, and the river north art district [rino], for those of you who know denver. and to give you dallasites a frame of reference, i live about as far from downtown denver as i did from downtown dallas, living in uptown. my neighborhood vibe here is a lot different than uptown – probably more similar to a deep ellum or lower greenville vibe in dallas – but there are definitely still a lot of walkable places and i have about 10 breweries within a mile of me which is pretty sweet. i think it’s going to be a fun place to be.
my dear mom drove up here with me, got me settled into my new apartment [as much as is possible when your furniture hasn’t arrived yet…], and spent some time exploring the city with me for a couple days before flying back home to dallas. i’m so thankful that she was able to drive with me and be here for my first few days. the move has had its share of challenges, but i’m thrilled to be here and so grateful for the support of family and friends. i’ll start my new job at the end of the week and will hopefully be getting my furniture this weekend. aaaaaand i’ll be posting a bit over the next few weeks to try to get the blog caught up with life! thanks again for following. xoxo
