So, we have an apartment. We signed the lease yesterday and our furniture arrives tomorrow. The internet and cable are getting set up today. And it is SO nice. Not right in town, but not out in the suburbs either. A gorgeous balcony with beautiful mountain views. Three bedrooms so we can each have our own office. A lovely kitchen with tons of cabinet space. Lots of closets. Big windows. Right by a Target and a Costco, and near a fantastic brewery where we had dinner last night. And all this for several hundred dollars less than our one-bedroom apartment in DC.
Plus, it allows dogs. And we'll be looking for one this weekend. I am so, so, so excited about that.
Denver is just so perfect. It's walkable and drivable, and it's beautiful. The mountains in the background are just breathtaking. Especially at sunset, when the sky is blue and the mountains are blue and the clouds are blue--it's just stunning. The river downtown is beautiful, and there are parks everywhere. And the people are so nice! It's really amazing.
We have an address. We forwarded our mail. The other day we noticed the gorgeous sunset over the mountains and I was scrambling for the camera and Torsten reminded me that we will see that sunset every day. Because we live here. This is our home. I just can't get over it.
