Our First Place

As promised, I am going to share with you all about our new home.

Our beautiful Colorado home (near Fairplay).

Brandon and I are both Colorado natives, born and raised. We both grew up in small town Bailey, Co where we attended elementary school, middle school, and high school. When we got the chance to get away in college, both us of chose to be just around 2 hours away from home. What can I say, we loved growing up in the beautiful mountains. Now that Brandon is a commissioned officer in the Air Force, we live wherever they send us. And this time, they chose to send us to…San Angelo, TEXAS. While it’s sad to leave home, we are both so excited to see the country and start our lives together. Neither of us had ever even been to Texas before we moved here. Needless to say, it has been quite the adventure already.

We are renting a cute, little apartment not too far off base. We have two bedrooms (a spare in case anyone wants visit) and two bathrooms. Our next door neighbor is wonderful and we enjoy late night chats on the balcony with some of TJ’s Frozen Yogurt, the one and only froyo place in all of San Angelo (I was so excited they had frozen yogurt here, I wasn’t sure how I would survive without my TCBY).

San Angelo is pretty small …but it’s citizens are very proud of their little city. They are the wool capitol (of what, I am not sure) so they have big, metal sheep placed throughout the city, in front of buildings, and decorated. For example, the Air Force Base’s sheep is wearing a flight jacket and helmet and looks as if ┬áhe is metal like a plane.

The bats take off right after the sun sets. They say there are up to 150,000 bats living under the overpass!

Also, right by our apartment complex, thousands of bats live under the over-pass and you can watch them all take off at night. It’s pretty cool…and also a little creepy. We’ve been hiking at the state park, where Jonah got into a fight with a cactus, enjoyed the River Walk that runs along the Concho River, and we plan on checking out Fort Concho once it starts to cool off.

Many of you have been asking for pictures of our place…so here is the official tour.

While the views just aren’t the same as in Colorado and the heat never quits, we are loving our new home in Texas. Next weekend we are even going to get to see a live armadillo at the San Angelo Nature Center!

And in case you were wondering what Texas looks like:

Well, until next time Y’all! (haha just kidding…)
