Cape Cod was fabulous! We didn’t get to go to some areas due to COVID, which was a bummer, but we still had so much fun. It was excellent catching up with my sisters, and the cousins all enjoyed each other. We stayed near all these huge ponds, so we got to swim a bunch. Very relaxing. The humidity was intense. Like, sheets were wet feeling the whole time. It was weird. I do appreciate the Colorado weather. I know I complain about it often, but honestly, there’s no place better.
We had family portraits taken on the beach. And we got some good ones. Full family portraits are far and few between. This is your reminder to have them taken when you’re all together! And the session itself didn’t disappoint when it comes to memory-making. The flies were legit. They were biting us, swarming us, flying into us. It was a massacre. Because of them, the session was short-lived. But the photog gods were looking down on us that day, and we got awesome pictures taken.
Now, back to reality. School started, and both kids are in it, and it’s fantastic. It’s a lot more running around and finding balance with playdates, activities, driving to and from school, my work schedule. All of it. It’s a lot. But, I’ll invite it. Bridger has already missed the bus home because he was socializing, so I had to go get him. Ugh. Life, right?
And, I’m back in CrossFit and partaking in the sauna. It’s so nice. I’m taking the sauna-going easy, though. No need to entice another sick liver. Oh! Bachelor in Paradise has started! Yas!

Colorado Realtor® Stuff

I have a new listing up and running- a 10-acre hobby farm, 3/3, well maintained, over 4000 square feet, plus a cabin that’s down this little hiking trail. Amazing views. It was the best I’ve ever seen. We’ve had showings, and they’ve gone great. It’s coming in at $1,150,000 with an updated kitchen and workshop and new deck, lots of great updates. If you’re looking for the quintessential mountain home, look no further!
Do you guys remember my client who was going back and forth with selling his place? Well, it’s over! I stayed on to help him get rid of all the stuff he doesn’t want so he could get out of there in time for the new owners to move in. And, it’s finally complete. He did leave some stuff thereafter he moved out, and I went in and picked it all up so it can be thrown out responsibly. He’s in California now, and all is good, and all are happy.
I had two closings while on vacay; they went great, and I have a closing Friday that will go just as smoothly, I have no doubt.
I hope you guys got to enjoy your summer and are amped to get back into the swing of things. I, for one, am ready for fall. Cinnamon apples, spiced vanilla, pumpkin flavored stuff. Yes, please. Who’s with me?
