A day in the life of small town USA

This morning was glorious here in Walsenburg. It was around 60 degrees with a nice cool breeze blowing, so I took a walk. I found a lovely set of hollyhocks a few blocks away…

IMGP3816so nice  I had to share them with you. There’s lots of hollyhocks here! They remind me of growing up in a small town in Kansas. Walsenburg is basically very small town and traffic-free except for Main Street and Highway 160 headed west. Most people never get off the main drag and see what a friendly town this can be.

IMGP3834Then we took a drive over to La Veta to visit our friends at Two Fox Cabins. Pat and Doug beautifully maintain this best place in the area to stay! They have a way with wildflowers, and they are constantly improving their place for visitors, so much so that they’re full for most of the rest of the summer.

On the way back from La Veta we stopped off at our almost finished new home in the foothills.

IMGP3839I just had to share the view from our new front door! We now have the first layer of stucco on and on Monday they will finish it with an adobe-colored finish. Can’t wait!

IMGP3842It was looking so glorious up there that I had to take another photo of the Sangre de Cristo mountains in the distance.

IMGP3846Inside, my custom bathroom is looking wonderful! I chose white marble tile with mint green walls, with green and purple glass highlights in the shower and on the backsplash. What do you think? This is the first time in my life I got to choose everything myself… What FUN!
