I'm still alive, I promise. (Are you?)
So, I survived bilateral hip arthroscopy and have been s.l.o.w.l.y healing and getting back to my normal routine these past 3.5 months. But it feels like it's taking FOREVER. I'm not a patient patient, in case you were wondering.
Despite the pain, though, Huz and I celebrated our 20th (!!!) anniversary 12 days ago and spent an amazing weekend away in Estes Park, CO where we snow-shoed for nearly 4 hours. Ouch it hurt, but damn it was worth it! It was a guided trip and I'm glad because we easily could have gotten lost up there. We were in Rocky Mountain National Park and walked over frozen Nymph Lake, Dream Lake and Emerald Lake.
We definitely enjoyed our time away without jobs, kids, chores, or home renovations to attend to. We overindulged by going on a self-guided brewery and distillery tour in both Ft. Collins and Estes Park.
We stayed at a gorgeous B&B - Della Terra Mountain Chateau - which was hands-down the nicest place we've ever stayed. It had radiant-heated floors, a fireplace that was viewable from the bed and the soaker bath, a walk-through 360 shower, and our own 2-person hot tub out on a private patio. I want to go there every year!
I'm still amazed by my very good fortune to have married a man I would grow with over the years and who truly is my best friend.
Yay for 20 years!
