I was born and raised in the Bay Area of CA, actually. I wanted to go to College somewhere far, far away from home, so I actually spent freshman year at the University of West Florida in Pensacola (my Grandparents retired there, so I had some family nearby). Two of my great-aunts actually attended Belmont when it was called Ward Belmont (an all Girls school)- one was actually best friends with Sarah Cannon (whom you probably know best as Minnie Pearl). So we toured the campus and I just fell in love with it- and they actually offered my major, so I transferred.
My best friend lives in Murfreesboro, so we try to get out there as much as possible. We were there several months ago (in April) and had a blast. There are certainly things I miss about the South!
I really think you'll love it here- but boy, is it dry- especially when you are used to that humidity! : ) Defintley plan on investing in LOTS of lotion. Hey, one plus? You can actually hang your towels after a shower- and they are crisp & dry the next AM! : )
Another tip- buy a high altitude cookbook. It's something I didn't think of until after I had made my first batch of cookies... and they looked like some sort of animal droppings.. : )
Okay, now you have my life story.. lol! How did you guys decide to move to CO? Do you have family/friends here? Are you a TN native? (And, are you a UT fan)? : )
