August 15 -- just over 10 days from now -- our vacation starts. I'M SO EXCITED!!! For me, this wont be just ANY vacation. I'm actually going to have many first-time experiences... some of which are long overdue.
Kathy and I agreed to meet in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where we'll go hiking, zip lining, and ride a glass-top train. Not only will this be my FIRST time in Colorado (I know, I know... I lived in Nebraska for 23 years and have never before visited Colorado... the SHAME!). It will also by my FIRST time vacationing with a girlfriend.
I've mentioned this story before: I grew up in a strict household. Road trips, weekend getaways, and spring breaks without adult supervision were forbidden. By the time I became an adult, I was focused on education and my career (plus I didn't have much money to spare). Now that I've got my feet under me and a little savings, I'm taking advantage of the fun side of adulting.
The best part? I get to share this experience with a woman I adore! Kathy and I were roomates in college and share a love of all things Nebraska, writing, and food. This is going to be awesome. :D
