      October 23, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

      Die letzte zwöi Täg heimer in Cañon City vrbracht.

      •Am Samsti simer nach öpe 4h Fahrzyt in Cañon City acho. Wüu si Schnee und stürmischs Wetter hei gmeudet, heimer für 2 Nächt es Motel buechet. Ungerwegs heimer in Gunnison und Salida je ä Zwüschehaut gmacht u hei die Städtli churz agluegt.
      •Am Nami simer no z'Audstädtli vo Cañon City ga aluege u när ga esse. Ä Restaurantbsuech hie isch für üs immer no gwöhnigsbedürftig. Ihres grösste Ziu isches, d'Lüt müglechst schnäu z'bediene u dr Tisch wiedr frei z'übercho. So simer no zmitz ir Vorspies gsy, wo dr Houptgang scho isch serviert worde u währendem Houptgang simer scho gfragt worde, was mr zum Dessert wei. Sobaud mä dr letzt Biss het abegschlückt bringe si när scho d'Rechnig. Mir si knapp 1h dert inne gsy obwou mrs hei wöue gmüetlech nä😅. Andere Länder - andere Sitten🤷‍♀️.

      ▪︎Es het zwar nid gschneit aber z'Wetter am Sunnti isch nid grad top gsy. Drum simer am Morge iz Museum of Colorado Prisons wo direkt nebeme Gfängnis steit wo no in Betrieb isch.
      ▪︎När heimer ä Scenic Drive gmacht u drbi über d'Stadt gseh.
      ▪︎Am Nami simer när no i Chino bevor mr ines indisches Restaurant si ga Znacht esse.

    • Day 8

      Welcome to Cañon City

      May 28, 2023 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

      Today I woke up for the last time in Denver. Kendra and I had breakfast then got in the car and drove about 2 hours to her home in Cañon City. The drive is always gorgeous, alongside the Rocky Mountains. We listened to a wedding playlist as she and her partner still need to pick their first dance song!!
      We arrived at their gorgeous house, a 2 bedroom with a huge backyard and I got to meet Onyx and Duke, the two doggos. Had lunch and then I got to meet Kendra's fiance Mitch for the first time! He was also with his sister Makayla who is going to be in the wedding party too. They were both so lovely, and Mitch immediately made me feel welcome. We watched the formula one together and instantly bonded. Kendra was not surprised. We stopped by Sonic, which was always our favourite place to get slushies and ice cream.
      Next we went to home depot and the grocery store to pick up some things. I sat in the backyard playing with the dogs while Mitch and Kendra worked on the house. Finally I helped cook dinner and Mitch made this incredible salad and pesto pasta for us. We then watched a stand-up comedy special by Iliza which was hilarious. I'm so happy to be here and getting to stay with Mitch and Kendra this week.

    • Day 16

      Last full day with Kendra

      June 5, 2023 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

      Today I woke up still up in Rye in the party cabin. We sat on the couch and drank coffee, slowly getting ready to leave. Once the place was clean and the truck was loaded we headed off. I think for Kendra and Mitch it was the first real day of them being married and it hit them that we were headed back to reality. The drive was squishy, I was loaded up with both the doggos but it was good. There were 2 fairly full kegs left over so we took the longer but gentler route home. We stopped to pick up lunch with were Asada Fries, literally steak, guac, sour cream, salsa and cheese on top of chips. Honestly changed my life. We unloaded the truck, then binged the whole season of "the summer I turned pretty" as we were all wrecked. Kendra and Mitch had to go to see Mitch's mum but I stayed home and did my puzzle book. Safe to say everyone was wrecked from the weekend, including the dogs.
      All my bags are packed as I fly out to Iowa tomorrow! I feel ready to go in a way, so I can give Mitch and Kendra space but I'm so sad to be leaving again. I love being here!

    • Day 13

      Day before the wedding!

      June 2, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      Today we woke up and gathered some last stuff to take up to the venue. Mitch brought us back the best breakfast burrito I've had in a while. We drove up and met Kendra and Mitchs parents as well as some of the other relatives. We quickly got everything completed to satisfaction which was good to reduce stress. We drove back and met Mitchs sister Allie, brother in law Evan and Grandma Lettie. They were making bouquets and there were flowers everywhere. I got ready and then started helping make them as well. Making bouquets was the most stressed I've been all week but it was so nice getting to know Mitch's family. We then headed to the church to rehearse. Mitch and Kendra were running late because they had to take Duke to the vet as he had an infected paw, so we arrived about 15 minutes late.
      The church was absolutely beautiful but we had to rush in and run straight to the front row. The lady leading the rehearsal was Joyce and she was low key scary, she was very strict in what we were supposed to be doing. We walked down the aisle and the men were all stressing out about how quickly we were walking. Kendra and Mitch basically got married as they read through their vows.
      We then headed to Mitch's familys restaurant for a dinner together. It was so fun to get to meet and get to know more of the bridal party, family and other friends. People made speeches and I ended up getting up to talk and finished with a shoey. Kendra and I drunk a bit too much red wine and headed home. Mitch was staying with his grandma and Kendra and I watched the parent trap.
      It was a big day but it'll be an even bigger one tomorrow.
