Another vacation and new place in the world was checked off of my travel list over Labor Day weekend – Fort Collins, Colorado (known as Foco to the locals) and Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park.
We made the decision to travel over Labor Day weekend a month or so beforehand. It was an off-the-cuff trip that started with me saying “we should visit Colorado over the holiday weekend so we don’t have to use an extra day of vacation.” We’re pretty diligent about how we spend that paid time off; being travelers (and not having kiddos) every hour is precious and doesn’t go to waste. My philosophy is that the world is big and filled with beautiful places and this life is short, so I’ll just never be that person that holds onto my vacation time. Maybe if life circumstances change, but not now.
That one little comment planted the seed and within 2 days we’d decided to take a road trip and have an adventure!
