Yesterday I received Money Magazine's September issue. The front cover tauted the 100 Best Places to Live in America. Inside, #1 was Louisville, Colorado and #20 Superior, Colorado.

Just today, my nine year old was talking about how much she still misses Colorado. I said it was probably time we moved on and embraced our new town. I was trying to convince both of us. "But what if my heart stays there?" she asked. I hugged her, in part needing a hug myself.
I wouldn't give up my time in Colorado, and the wonderful friends I made there, for anything. It was a blessing. I'm a huge believer in all things happening for a reason. The reason isn't clear to me right now, but I trust it.
Don't get me wrong... I'll visit as much as possible. And, yes, my heart is still there and broke a little when we left. Hearts mend, it just takes time. Another thing I know about hearts, they grow and have immeasurable capacity. Just being Mom to three kids has taught me that.
Congratulations to all my Colorado friends. I miss you!
Where are pieces of your heart?
