AWAY from Home for the Holidays

January 4, 2017

Whew!  Isn't it amazing how quickly the holiday seasons come and go.  It is so bitter sweet to get through all the hustle and bustle just in time to pack it all away.  My home always feels a bit bare for a few days after I get the decorations put away, but it doesn't take long to fill it all back up again.  This year, I have to admit, my Christmas decorations are all still up and the tree lights are on every night for a little extra enjoyment of the holidays.  My delay in taking down the garlands and ornaments and nativity sets is a direct result of some pretty amazing fun though!  We decided to surprise our kids with a last minute ski trip after Christmas--oh what fun!  Family came and went, presents were opened and enjoyed and then out the door we went....


First a 12 hour road trip with an 8 and 5 year old--so as you can imagine, there were a few stops in our future just to make it to Colorado.  Stop #1 was to the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX-a must see.  Just a bunch of old Caddies sticking out of the ground and covered in spray paint. Something you'd expect to see on the side of the road in Texas, right?!

Then a long ride onto Santa Fe, for an overnight stay.  I LOVE Santa Fe and so did the boys. Great food, a little market shopping and some wonderful rooftop pizza.  And who could pass up these gorgeous, glitter embellished coffee shop windows-adorable!







What beautiful countryside as we made our way into Colorado.  Our boys, growing up in Texas, don't see mountains and snow, so what a treat to take in these views for several hours.  And finally--we made it to our destination, Pagosa Springs, CO.  The boys couldn't wait to hit the slopes, but if I can be completely honest - skiing has never been my cup of tea.  I prefer a sunny beach and a cocktail in hand.  What a surprise I was in for....
