we're back from granite peak, where i am happy to report i mastered my first intermediate run! as i've mentioned before, even though i've been skiing in colorado in the past, i've only been skiing 4 times in my life (including this last time) and on most of my trips, i have been grossly under-prepared for the mountain.
james and i have been taking it slow so i can regain my confidence on the hills and even though he's a black diamond-level snowboarder, he is so patient with me. it rained all day saturday, so we only got to ski on sunday, but we enjoyed the weekend away anyway. we stuck to a full 24-hours of no cell phones, explored the town center, and i started devouring this book. i haven't been this hooked on a book in a long time!
on our way back to chicago, we stopped for a burger at fuddruckers, which always reminds me of my dad. he and i would go there when i was younger and ever the jokester he was, he would always swap the syllables around to make the name into something i can't type out on this blog...
how was your weekend?
