‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, painting all through the house
No furniture to speak of, except the one yellow couch.
Our stockings had been packed in the truck with such care,
We just hoped things didn’t get broken in there.

Winnie and Haley, all stressed,wouldn’t sleep in their beds
Hoped they had visions of the Rockies in their heads.
And Mike in his heady hat and I in my vols cap,
Had been prepping for the move, we just wanted to nap!

Our skis were awaiting, season passes were ready,
Just needed to make the 25 hour drive nice and steady.
Away to Denver we were driving, bought a house in a flash,
The mile-high city was calling & we were making a dash.

The townhouse had rented and I told my work,
I’ll continue remotely as an added perk!
Our friends and family we’ll miss so much so,
We’ll try not to cry as we ski in the snow.

Our Denver adventure is finally here,
We can’t wait for what awaits in the new year!
So while this holidays weird, we’re like nomads alright
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
