I’m a Colorado native, and you’d be hard pressed to find someone more devoted to the state than I am. As a military brat and the only native in my family of origin, I know how lucky I am to have been born in the place I’d choose to spend every day I’m blessed with.
So I’m a little ashamed to admit that I always chuckled to see the sign at the borders of God’s little piece of heaven.
Because as far as I can tell, other than our impossibly blue sky, the whole state is pretty much brown and sage.
I never made a big deal about it, I just mentally put quotation marks around “colorful.”
Today, I have to take that all back.
I get it now.
No more quotation marks.
