I Love Winter!

New skis!

I love living in a place where I get to experience all of the seasons. I love winter. It takes a bit to transition from fall to winter, but once I figure out what I need to wear to keep me warm I am good to go. I am looking forward to the snow and the holidays. This is such a wonderful time of the year. We are getting ready for ski season around here and I'm so excited!! Charlie just got his new skis and boots in the mail today and he was happy. The skis are pretty cool too, I'm jealous. I can not wait to take some vacation over the holidays and not go to work! We will be skiing and having lots of fun. I'm also looking forward to the New Year's Eve 10k that is happening in my neighborhood...only about 2 blocks away!

Bring on the snow!

Here are some photos from the best places I've ever skied. They were both fun and beautiful!! I will tell you that the people in Austria know how to ski, party & have fun!!!
The first set of photos are from a ski trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This was one of my favorite trips. This place is beautiful any time of the year!

This photo was taken in the summer and it's just as beautiful then too!These next set of photos are from our ski trip to Sölden, Austria. This was the most amazing ski trip I've ever been on!! There was music playing all over the mountain! The red building is a place to warm up and get drinks! Seriously, they have these little huts blasting music and serving drinks all over the mountain! They serve Glühwein, which is a hot, spicy wine...really good.

Been to Jackson Hole plenty and it rocks. Austria! Now that is a ski trip. Sounds so fun. Love the kids skiis. Nothing cuter than seeing 2 feet tall people cruising by you on the slope.

Beautiful! I went to Jackson Hole once when I was a kid. Gorgeous place. I'd love to visit again.

I wish I liked winter, but I just can't get myself there. I'm a summer girl, through and through! Enjoy your season!

You lived in Germany?!?! That is so so cool. I LOVE your new ski's...they are beautiful. Those photos made me want it to snow so so bad. I love Jackson Hole. Alta and Deer Valley are my favorite resorts but now I can never go there because my hubby snowboards:)

Ok, those are gorgeous pictures - and I live in ski country. Maybe you can come out and ski in CO with me sometime. Oh, let me rephrase that: maybe you can come out and ski in CO and I will come and join you and I will drink hot chocolate and watch you. :)

Your boys are precious!!!!
