Hello, hello from my favourite place in the world! Also known as “the mountains” 😀
It’s currently late Saturday night and I’m feeling exhausted after a long day of driving and snowboarding, so hopefully the kids that are running up and down the hallways of our hotel tire themselves out soon so that I can get some shut eye. Ohhhhh to be young again 😛
I wish I had something more interesting to say in the way of intros, but I’m literally
sitting laying here in bed with one eye open and a brain that flatlined about 20 minutes ago. I hope you guys are having an awesome weekend, and I’ll [hopefully] see you tomorrow with a little recap!
In my head…
