I'm one of those people moving to Colorado next year. There's no ifs,'s happening. I love being out there, the idea of actually LIVING out there makes me swoon. Because it's not like I'm just "there". I'm hiking, I'm exploring, I'm enjoying everything I love about it like the weather, I'm meeting people I actually like and have things in common with, it gives me some amount of peace to see the mountains every day, the shops and bars are fun, the weather treats me well because I LOVE snow, but I don't love snow ALL THE TIME. And the sun. Seeing sun, mountains, dogs, and awesome people everyday?

Colorado is my own heaven on earth.
Ahhh the way you describe it... makes me want to move out there even more!

You get to use all of your wardrobe year 'round?

The mountains get super whacked out freak snowstorms, this is true.

Colorado is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! We're taking our vacation there next year and I have started the research and planning already. It's incredible. That may not be why people are moving there, but it's a good reason, IMO. This is my desktop... a shot of where we're going...

I loved a lot of CO's features.

It's gorgeous. Hiking and camping is awesome. The weather is great most of the time. Once in the mountains, it was heaven on Earth for us.

However, we couldn't afford to live in the mountains full time and the wildfires skeeved me out at the end. It's very dry, and the altitude sucked for my asthma.

I really enjoyed our time out there (almost a year), but I wouldn't want to move back. I'd love to visit some more, but not to move back. Josh and I were looking for a little bit more of the "old west" feel. I think if we went back (which I would love to some day), we'd move to northern WY or Montana.

Northern Michigan reminds me a lot of the mountains, though, so we may end up moving up there. Time will tell!

Dear God, thankfully no - today I got to wear nothing but a spaghetti tank and shorts, and the rest of my wardrobe stayed happily in the closet.

These are the things I would miss if I left Colorado. There's snow and wind and tornadoes (occasionally) but there's also 300+ days of sunshine, mountains, lakes, rivers, creeks, hiking, ridiculously gorgeous views, cabins, camping, dog friendly everywheres, and just so much awesome. I don't ever want to leave this state.

GAH.... beaten to the punch :P

But really, Colorado is beautiful, and has a GREAT Equine Science school. If I get my DVM I plan to move the fam down there for a couple years to go to school to specialize in Equine Repro Services
