Jamie and I spent our first married Christmas in Vail, Colorado with my family and it was magical. Believe it or not, my parents are incredible snow skiers. They have skied their whole life, so in fact, I have skied most of my life. However, this would be Jamie’s first snow sporting adventure. Jamie and I thought it would be fun to learn something new together, so we first started on snowboards and let me tell you, it was a sight to see. We made a huge mistake on our first day on the slopes and decided to go down one run without a lesson. Long story short, it took us three hours to get down and by the end, my goggles were filled with tears of frustration and my back side was quite sore. After day two of sliding down slopes and laughing hysterically at each other, we decided to trade in our snowboards for skis. I couldn’t have been more happy and after a couple of lessons from my family, Jamie was doing so well. Day by day, he improved and by the end of the week, he was successfully skiing the blue slopes!
Our week was filled with tons of snow, many delicious homemade meals, cozy cups of coffee and precious quality time with family. Our incredible trip and time together was the perfect Christmas present! See more of our pictures here!
