Lame pun in the title, but Colorado really is rad. We had a whirlwind of travel in July. One of T’s childhood friends got married to a lovely lady on the 4th of July in Jasper, Georgia. So we sent Rylee away to his pet retreat, packed up our truck, and drove through 4 hours of thunderstorms to make it to the mountains for a weekend with his side of the family.
We partied the night away under the stars, watched fireworks, had delicious BBQ, and packed up for the next leg of our adventure. After 3 hours of sleep, we drove down to Atlanta to catch a plane to Denver for the start of #bodadebanas wedding week. My sister (who we visited in May) got hitched! We got there early to help me adjust to the altitude, and to assist with wedding week needs. We shopped, organized, packed, strategized, crafted, and ate a lot of really good food.
Then we packed up the car and headed to Breckenridge to check into our super cute house with my mom and dad. I struggled with the altitude and my MG, but I managed. Unfortunately, I was stuck to an oxygen concentrator for a few days until we could get a doctor to prescribe me a portable oxygen tank to allow some more freedom. The whole week called for thunderstorms (and boy did we get some!), but the skies parted for an absolutely beautiful wedding day at A-Basin. Nearly all of our family was there, and many life-long friends as well.
Traveling as an MG patient can be extremely stressful and tiring. I enjoyed nearly every minute of this trip, but I am pretty worn down. It is all about allowing time to recover afterwards. It’s been a week since we came home, and I am starting to slowly feel better. I hibernated the first week back. But I am feeling well enough to paint, and have started working on some pieces inspired by this trip.
