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…
so 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.
Then 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.
I 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!
It was looking so glorious up there that I had to take another photo of the Sangre de Cristo mountains in the distance.
Inside, 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!

It’s really coming along wonderfully! Thanks for letting me see your front porch view. 🙂
Beautiful!, Laura! Love your shower! Callia loves your view!
THANKS! Yes Linda, it’s been quite the struggle, but move-in day is finally in sight!
That is one amazing view! I’ll bet you can’t wait to wake up to it.
YES Carol, especially compared to my view of the house next door now! Although I regularly see deer and raccoons walking by…
The first time in your life you get to choose… That’s a great moment. I hope your new place will be everything you’ve always dreamed it would be.
Yes Brenda: I GET TO CHOOSE! That feels great to me! It should happen to all of us at least once in a lifetime. That’s what I think!
What an amazing view! It’s been fun to see your progress.
