Was your Christmas merry?
We woke up, opened presents (gameboyoldschoolnintendoreloadingkitt-shirtbeautyandthebeasthandmadeblanket+miscellaneousstockingstuffers. Now that's done, let's move on.) And then we were treated to a tasty mountain breakfast up the canyon at Silver Fork Lodge by my lovely mother and stepfather. And then, we snowboarded. Guess who's learning her toe edge, and also learning about jumping up after a fall?
Snowboarding is exciting to me, because it's something I never thought I'd do. Mentally or physically. Strapping me footly into that board was a fear conquered in itself, and actually sliding down the mountain with some amount of speed is another. This year I'm grateful for a patient husband.
So now we're looking forward to the New Year. I'm not big on resolutions, but this year I may have something. Nothing big or concrete, but something that works for myself.
I love Christmas, but I'm a little glad it's done with now. Our first Christmas together was memorable. I feel we've got some traditions started, but only time will tell. The best part, though? Seeing family.
This year, I got to know my sister better.
Which was a wonderful present in itself. (But the boots she bought me are cool too.)
