This past weekend, Trey took me to Breckenridge for a wonderful Valentine's mini trip. I LOVED it! Skiing is something Trey has really enjoyed since he was a kid, and I must admit, I was quite nervous to learn. I think my biggest fear wasn't that I would be bad at it (I'm generally bad at anything requiring balance or athleticism) but that I wouldn't like skiing. The good news: Learning to ski was easily my favorite part of the trip. The first day was very frustrating, but then I took two days of lessons, and my only regret is that we didn't have time for a few more days of lessons. I'm pretty sure I would have been a pro with just a few more days of lessons.
OK, maybe not a pro. I think watching the winter Olympics during our down time may have given me some false confidence. :)We stayed at a large house (we used Homeaway.com to book it) with a big group of friends. The house was just a five minute walk to the ski resort, making it easy for some folks to start skiing early or later in the day as they pleased. Trey's sister, Kat, created a five-course wine pairing dinner for everyone for Valentine's night. How romantic! :) And we spent a day wandering around Breckenridge. My favorite spots were Giampietro Pizza (thanks for the recommendation, Katie!) and Crepes A La Cart. We had an absolute blast, and I can't wait to go back. xo. Emma
