manitou springs

fact: manitou springs, colorado is the cutest town ever. 
it's like your classic western mountain town & stars hollow had a lovechild.
and trust, i never miss an opportunity to make a stars hollow reference. 

anyway, there are about 1,000 fudge & ice cream shops & cafes there. so we will definitely be back soon. we both went to the local amusement park, called "the north pole" when we were kids. i went while visiting cousins, and apparently robbie was an infant and took part in some sort of cystic fibrosis awareness ad that was shot there. this big old world is so small sometimes. (totally relevant sidenote: robbie and i were also reminded of that fact the other night when i made him watch armageddon for the first time in his life. i don't know how he's gone this long -- this line: "six billion people on the planet…why'd ya call me?" it's just so perfectly bruce willis i can't stand it.)

anyway, we were completely charmed by you, manitou springs. we'll be seeing you.
