Hard to believe it's already been a year. Thinking back on it, that year has flown by so fast and it's almost felt like I JUST moved here a month ago. But so much has happened, we've done so many awesome things, and we have had some fantastic experiences since my wife, our six-year-old son, and I started calling Colorado home. Oh, and we can't forget about our dog Lucy and Kozmoe the Kitty either.

It's been such a whirlwind and nonstop since we got here and if I'm being completely honest, it's been a little overwhelming at times. However, It's mostly been a wonderful experience as my family and I have already created some lifelong memories.

I was pretty familiar with Colorado as I had lived in Texas for several years. During that time in the early 2000s, I made several trips up here to visit friends, go to ball games, concerts, etc. But over the past 15-16 years since my last visit, things have changed here a lot. Mostly for the good, but some not so much.

So, I thought it would be fun to look back on my first year in Colorado with my family and share some of the things that I've learned. Most of these things are legit, but some are tongue in cheek. So, if you get offended easily or don't have a sense of humor, you may want to stop reading now.

If you're good, then let's look back on the past year of my crazy life and check out some of the things I've learned about living in the GREAT state of Colorado!
