The Monday Snapshot – Skiing with Kids Edition

First off, so sorry for the radio silence here the last two weeks. I was at a medical coding conference for 4 days after my last post (which, incidentally, is probably the hardest thing I’ve done mentally since college), and then life just stayed busy with the catch-up game after being out of town! I’ll […]

The End of a Season

…quite literally. It’s the end of ski & snowboard season here for our area,ย and it’s bittersweet. Most of my soul is screaming BRING ON SUMMER, but I’ve honestly really enjoyed my days on the mountain with Stella this year. Harvey, not so much.

Skiing, Day 2
