Snow week! It makes me so happy to see everything blanketed in white! Winter is my absolute favorite season. Coming inside after going for a ski and sitting by the fire drinking hot chocolate and eating toast with homemade jam is one of my favorite things ever! I also noticed that this first snow made me very homesick for my tiny Sierra Nevada town. On the first snow days of the year, the whole town would be celebrating, everyone getting out their cross-country skis and cruising around town!! Helping each other shovel, making snow angels in the snow and celebrating the white flakes falling from the sky. We lived there during some of the biggest winters and it was incredible to be able to put your skis on in front of the house and skin up to the peaks behind town and do laps until your legs and lungs hurt. Later we would look at our tracks from the kitchen window and think about where to add new ones the following day. Now that we live in a city it’s different and I have to get used to it, but I am excited to explore the cross-country ski trails here and learn my way around Bridger! I am certain that after enough winters here new memories will have been created and new adventures will make me smile and think of this place as fondly as our last. Part of leaving places, that are dear to my heart, is allowing myself to reminisce without getting too sad and forgetting to be present. So my goal for this winter is to learn my way around these mountain ranges, so I can fall in love with them and have a new winter wonderland filled with smiles! Cheers to happy winter smiles!
