The New Year

The New Year is here!  As a tradition, we spend the holiday break in Vermont.  My boys (husband and son) ski their days away while I spend my days reading, browsing Flipboard, and enjoying some non-skiing activity.  Most often, this is snowshoeing with a sweet friend around the mountain.  This I Love!  Layer up, grab the dogs, and off we go.  We plan our evenings alternating between dining in while sitting around a fireplace or popping out to a restaurant.  New Year’s eve is gathering with friends for an apres ski and pre-firework fun sipping wine and eating bits of savory snacks.  All to be followed by a lovely dinner with friends at their home.  This has been the magic for eight years running.  A tradition that we love.  Celebrating with friends on the mountain is a much cherished way to ring in our new year.  This year I will embarrassingly admit was a struggle for me to keep my eyes open until the ball dropped in NYC.  I’m blaming it on a not so entertaining program this year, no drama, lots of advertising and no more Evil Knievel motorcycle jumping in Las Vegas to watch! I almost turned into a pumpkin. Cheers to a fantastic 2018 full of love, adventure, and maybe a bit more sleep!  xo
