Back on Board

Yesterday, I hit the slopes again, and it was a bit scary after my fall on Tuesday. I know. I’m a wuss. People take much harder hits and get back up, but this one got me a bit. I felt like a beginner boarder again. As far as the season goes, I feel I was […]

Enjoying the Slopes with my Aunt and Cousin

Warmer weather hit the Berkshires and Chris and I were ready to really enjoy our “weekend” days (Thursday and Friday). Added to the fun, today I got to share the experience with my aunt who also loves snow and mountains. I think a lot of you already follow her, and if not, you should check out h

Starting my Year off Right – On the Slopes Again

According to my Ski Tracks app, January 16 marked my 13th day on the slopes this season. Thank you Jiminy Peak!…We had a feeling we wouldn’t regret getting a place at Jiminy Peak, but we also didn’t realize how great it would actually be.

Snow Surprise Saves our Season

We slept in, yakked, read, took naps and basically took the day off as a quasi spa day. Pure luxury. In the evening we headed […]

A Digital Mini Time Capsule

Last week my friend and co-worker, Pam, posted a cute blog post in which she asked her kids questions, and they answered. She opened by saying it was a meme going around Facebook. Remembering the past, I dredged up a link to the trend from 2009 and pulled up my own kids’ answers (different questions, […]

Hudi Turns Sixteen

He stands over half a foot taller than I, but he will always be my baby (as are his brothers). I’m not certain when my youngest child morphed into a young man, but it happened. His zeal for life is inspiring. Whether he is teaching people how to snowboard and ski, mowing lawns for neighbors, […]
