Garden of the Gods - 3 years after my last visit. ⚠️READ: Wow, It's been over a year since my last photo. Thank you to all who stuck around. I lost my grandma five days after my last post, and it came as such a shock. It has been a really hard year after losing her. My grandpa died a week before Thanksgiving this year, and it feels like life keeps kickin' me down when I'm on my way up. They were both fairly young. Our family has suffered several lives lost this year, and it just speaks that we never know when our time to go will be. We must keep our loved ones close, and struggle to grasp every moment that we have, and embrace every experience; it may be our last.
