This post will officially be my last Colorado-Springs-Summer-Adventures post. We did our best to get out this past summer and explore all the Springs (and surrounding areas) had to offer. Sometimes I took pictures, but most times I didn’t. To be honest, it is really time-consuming and ridiculously difficult to take pictures of three kids as well as details of the area. Shocking, right?
Anyway, we’re not sure whether or not we will be moving in May of 2019, so this past summer might very well have been our last in the Springs. Another moment of honesty: I AM SO READY TO MOVE! Shawn and I are eager to explore the world and give our children a chance to experience different areas and (hopefully) different cultures. It’s all in God’s hands, though, so our dreams may be put on hold for a few more years. We won’t know for a while, but I’ll keep you posted.
These were taken about two-and-a-half months ago in Manitou Springs, an adorable little city located just outside of Colorado Springs. We visit here often; we love the quaint little shops and fun restaurants. We will definitely miss this city if we move, but I’m glad I took the time to take pictures so we can look back on our fun time with friends!PS We visited Manitou with one of my good friends, Hope. She is pregnant with her third baby now, and she is also a blogger! Check out her Facebook page here, and her blog here. You will not regret reading about her family’s story. It is a powerful message of loss, love, and healing. I am so proud of her honesty and openness. God is using her in many ways – I know her posts will speak to you, in ways you may not even expect!
