Did you have a good Christmas?
One of my favorite parts of the weekend was when me and AJ went snowboarding. I'll admit, I have to really force myself to go. I say it over and over again that I am not a fan of snow ... or cold for that matter. Snowboarding just happens to be an activity that contains both. Yet the moment I set my board on the snow, stand up to my fullest, and embrace the smooth slopes that stretch out in front me I remember how much I had truly missed the wind at my ears, the cool on my face, watching the trees fly past me in a whirl of green.
My biggest thank you to my dad for all those hours spent holding my hands as I slowly went down each slope, building my confidence to stand on my own, and encouraging me to reach beyond the imagineable.
