If you've ever crossed into Colorado by car, you'll know that the state signs are mountain lodge inspired and say "Welcome to Colorful Colorado." This series is my love note to Colorado, the place where, until recently, I lived for over 10 years and still consider home. Not only is the scenery spectacular, the air is crisp, the weather agreeable (at least to my snow loving heart!) and the people friendly. I feel so privileged to have spent so much time living in and exploring Colorado and I still go back and visit often as, much like an old love, it's just too hard to let go.
