First and foremost, we are in the midst of house hunting once again. There's been a lot of discussion over the previous months as to whether or not we would be leaving Colorado. Often times, it feels as though we are being called elsewhere, but when we really sat down and talked about "home," we are fairly certain we are there. It's difficult to imagine living anywhere else. We may struggle through the colder, icier months, but the reality is that we have what we want here.
With that decision came the realization that we need to find a home once again. Our temporary rental has been (and continues to be) a great spot for us to wait for our next home, but we are anxiously (probably far too anxiously) awaiting our permanent (as permanent as anything can be) future home. The house hunt is nothing short of exhausting (mentally and physically), particularly being in a hot market locally, but we are hopeful that the right home for us is just around the corner. There have already been several offers and inspections, but nothing ultimately has been the right place for us. I am learning to practice a skill that, at times, is difficult for me: patience.

Today has been the first day that's warmed up to a remotely tolerable temperature, and the sun has come out which seems to have at least taken the mental challenges away with heading out. Sunshine is wonderful!

The Rodriguez will have my pedals, a different saddle and handlebars, as well as different bar tape, but this is pretty much what it looks like with those minor changes to come on arrival. The fenders were a last minute decision based on the time of year, and I think it was a good one. I'm really looking forward to being able to ride this and hopefully provide some additional info soon.
Hopefully, life is treating all of you well and you're still enjoying a pleasant fall season! Happy riding.
