Change in Altitude

What happens when a woman who names her blog after the altitude of her home city moves away from that city? The short answer is – absolutely nothing – because I’ve paid for this name and damn it, it’s not going anywhere! But alas, I am no longer at or above 5280 feet above sea level. Instead, I’m at roughly 4300 feet. What that means for my daily life is that I don’t start wheezing until I hit a second flight of stairs, as opposed to the first. Winning! What it means for this blog is that my Colorado Adventures will now also include Utah Adventures. And maybe some Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho adventures someday, too. I’m expanding my horizons and yours too! Change is good.

So here’s a quick rundown on the 5280 Family’s change in altitude and attitude (cue Jimmy Buffett):

  • My hubby’s new job is a fantastic career move and awesome opportunity for the whole family. He spotted himself on a billboard this morning! A billboard! With his cute face giant sized looking down at himself. How’s that for surreal?
  • The boys are loving their new school and have made some fast friends already. It only took two school days for the older kid to have desk assignments rearranged because he was too chatty with the kiddo next to him.
  • We’re having fun exploring new restaurants, new stores, and meeting new people.
  • I have only a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment to clean up so there’s more time for writing, reading, exercising and all the stuff I enjoy doing! More on apartment life soon.

That’s it for now, friends. Stay tuned!

  • Think of it as just another adventure in your life of exploring new things. New places, new faces add up to new adventures. Keep us posted on life in Utah, small apartment living, the boys, Andrews new position, and you! Love you lots and lots and whole bunchies! Mom
