My smile falters when I tell her I'm fine- that everything's awesome! She can tell it's not. I've been in Colorado for 4 months and have gone to the coffee shop that she manages nearly every day- most times just coming in to say hi. To make them smile, make them laugh. To see her. … Continue reading My Colorado Love Life
