Happiness also is...

...a snow day! (When you're a grown up with vacation days and flyer miles to cash in.)


View from our living room window, February 20, 2009

We ran away to Copper Mountain in Colorado for a few days and I couldn't be happier. Nor more sore. So. Out. Of. Shape. Thank you to everyone who visited my trashy frame find...Unfortunately I'm on a dial up connection (DIAL UP!) so I'm not sure if I'll be back online for a few days. It just took me the better part of a delicious local microbrew to get this one photo uploaded. I look forward to visiting with you when I get back next week...'til then, may all your days be powder days (or at least all my days!).

oh. my. goodness.

you don't even know how much I would like to be there too

every time at this time of year I long for the cold weather, and when it comes, even tho it's nowhere near cold enough for snow I moan...

sorry you are sore, tho sometimes its nice to feel sore isn't it?

Laura,

You must have a great house there, what a view! I could tolerate this for a few days.

Not one much for skiing but I could definately be a lodge~ bunny...yum, all those micro brews!

Look forward to having you back, at the shorehouse that is! ;-)
