P.S. My better resolution was the one my husband made for me. Every time I swear I have to put a quarter into the man movie fund, where he gets to pick out which movie we rent/see. I think he will be disappointed, I don't really swear that much.


  1. i like denver. that would be a good choice.

  2. I live in Colorado Springs, so I get to enjoy Denver whenever I want. It is beautiful here and the climate is great! No humidity, mild seasons, no BUGS. Good luck in your search!
