...and life is sweet.
We could not be more in love with this place. It is everything we hoped for...and then some.
My favorite things so far:
Hiking almost every day in nearby Chautauqua Park//Mountain views everywhere you look//Mountain sunsets every night//Mountains...in general//Intensely blue skies//A varied and surprisingly lush landscape of mountain/desert flora//Feeling embraced by the warm and vibrant energy of the people here//The most amazing Whole Foods ever (that carries tons of local products!)//Iced almond chai lattes in the afternoon from local Bhakti Chai//Our light-filled apartment that is close to everything//Walking everywhere//The wonderfully colorful shops and restaurants of Pearl Street//Oatmeal brûlée topped with fresh berries at Snooze Eatery//The farmers' market (Oh. my. goodness. more on this soon.)//Homemade dinner and wine with best friends//Meeting my lovely new co-workers//Slowly exploring the local yoga community (there is SO much to explore here)//Long walks with the man and the pup
These are the highlights, but there is so much more. I am still absorbing and soaking it in, so I will leave it at this for now.
