Humbled-Great Sand Dunes National Park

This past weekend I celebrated 13 years of adventure with my guy. 13 years. It’s hard to believe its been that long, and I’ve loved every minute of it-all the ups and downs and round and rounds.

To celebrate, we sent the cupkeiki away with grandma and took a 5 hour drive to The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. I’ve always wanted to go, and it was so much more than I expected. I was in awe, humbled, thankful, excited, and in love with everything.

We ended up taking off our shoes and trekking around the ridges and running down the slopes barefoot. The sand was warm, the sun shone brightly and the wind-the wind blew. We had so much fun and enjoyed every minute. I can’t wait to take our cupkeiki-but perhaps in a few years when she’s not so quick to ask to be carried!
