The Bowing Aspen

The house is finally ours.  After months and months of struggle, we finally closed on our property.  This is going to be our mountain retreat, where we leave our worries behind and relax, where families get together, where memories are made.  This is going to be what makes us Colorado.

As we were turning into the road that led into our mountain home, we drove past a road lined with Aspen trees.  One of them was bending low into the road, as if to greet us.  I smiled and quietly said “hi”.
