I finally made it home last night after a few days away and found snow. Lots of it. I am not a huge fan of it, but I do love snowboarding so I am rather excited to head out the rest of the day. It seems like we’ve hardly had a winter this year ( not that I’m complaining) but I missed the hills so I don’t want to pass this up.
But first I wanted to highlight some of my favorite posts from the past week:
