Colorado History Series: Two for One History Bargain!
Two amazing historic structures in one shot. Both on the National Register of Historic Places. The Carnegie Library and St. Mary's Catholic Church. I spend a lot of time in the library. It contains one of the best special collections on Colorado in the entire state.The Carnegie Library has been open continuously since 1904. And I have to tell you, the volunteers there are some of the most amazing, knowledgeable, and kindest people around. Always a good experience.
The other structure...some would say, I don't spend enough time in! 😮😈🤣 St. Mary's Catholic Church opened in 1891. It is the seat of the Diocese of Colorado Springs. The architecture, to me is breathtaking. An absolute masterpiece.
I'd say this is a pretty accurate depiction of my year. From beginning to end, it's been a whirlwind. We went to Colorado, the @jonasbrothers REUNITED! We went to more festivals than I can count.
Shifting, shaking, forming, stretching, breathing, dancing... Crying, releasing, transforming, transmuting, being.... From high HIGHS and low LOWS this year was probably the most transformational year for me. I put in my notice at a full time job to follow my heart, soul, and some of my favorite musicians to Colorado for a blissful, healing, educational summer of love. I got to distance myself (literally and figuratively speaking) from my normal every day life, my friends, my family, and everything I knew.
Coming back home to GA was hard on me, if I'm being honest. It took lots of reintegration, regrounding, and serious amounts of work. I'm thankful for every moment of 2019, not just the ones that happened to make it on my social media.
The Volkswagen I.D. R! I found it once again.
The aero is insane, so is the acceleration, so is every other angle on this EV. It’s the fastest car to have ever gone up Pikes Peak! And the Splitter and Wing Are big enough to have a picnic on them!
What do you think of the ID R?
This time last year we were putting the final touches on Santa’s new roof! #TBT Metal Roofs can be designed to "blend in" with a structure and its surroundings or to really stand out. Santa Clause has recently chosen an aluminum shingle for his Workshop and other buildings at the North Pole, Colorado.🎅🏼🎄
Racing suit not required. The Limited Edition #ContinentalGT that honours our accomplishment for setting the #PikesPeak International Hill Climb record as the fastest production car. Discover more through the link in bio.
Continental GT WLTP drive cycle: combined fuel consumption: 20.8 mpg (13.6 l/100 km), combined CO₂: 308 g/km.
Earlier this year @bentleymotors smashed the Pikes Peak record with a new Continental GT, beating the old record by over 8 seconds. To celebrate, Bentley has created a new limited edition model that's painted in an intense Radium color to match the record-setter, and it has a number of Pikes Peak-themed design touches inside and out. (You can also get it in black, but why would you?) Just 15 of these special Continentals will be built at an undisclosed price. Do you like the look, or is it too gaudy for you?
