How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day? We’re escaping a weekend early to test our luck on the slopes. We have geared up (thanks to some awesome friends) and are headed out for a new sort of adventure. A much much needed short escape from reality. I am really hoping for some time with my hands on a strong drink (or hot cocoa… ok, maybe a spiked hot cocoa) and a cozy seat by the fire. If you want random pictures of our adventures (maybe even play along with my Waffle House drinking game) make sure to follow along on instagram.

However you are celebrating Valentine’s day – make it a good one this year! (If you don’t hear from me in a week or so, just assume this whole ski thing did not work out) 😉
