60 Days of Beauty: Day 29: It's only work if you'd rather be doing something else.

Yesterday was the start of Destination ImagiNation Camp at the US Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. I absolutely love the job of lead these camps. Even though the curriculum never changes, each camp is so different because of the different kids and challenges presented at each base. I love that this job doesn't get old. (Plus Colorado Springs is da bomb!) I hope I always remember that it is always worth doing what I love.

60 Days of Beauty: Day 27: Exploration

A good chunk of my New Year's Day was spent exploring the Garden of the Gods.  It was such a breath of fresh air (literally) as I have not gotten to be outside, explore or be on rock much in the past 2 months.  I climbed virtually to the top of this thing:

60 Days of Beauty: Day 26: Welcoming the New Year in peace

So, New Year's Eve was my first full day in Colorado Springs.  This also happened to be the day that the only people in Colorado Springs that I knew were leaving town.  I got to spend NYE alone... in someone else's house... in a strange city.  HA!  You would think it would be terrible, but considering how crazy my Break has been so far, it was really welcomed.  While my friends got crazy back home, I was, for the first New Years I remember, quiet.  It was a surprising and interesting change of pace.
Possibly a sign of peace and quiet to come in the new year???  Probably not so much quiet, but I can always hold out for the peace. :)
