"Wow, you look better on your skis today than you did all last season," my ever-so-charming husband said to me after our first run one day last month. It was an awkward compliment, but I couldn't argue with him. While I did eventually get to a point where I could make it from the top... Continue Reading →
As usual, I've let things go far too long without writing about them. And, as usual, I've made an unofficial "resolution" to revive this site and write more regularly.

We got somewhere between 6 and 8 inches overnight, which obviously meant I needed to do two things this morning: One, bring Booker outside to see... Continue Reading →
