Enjoying the Snow Near Flattop Mountain

Aaron and I decided to make a quick trip up to Flattop to enjoy some of the newly fallen snow on Saturday. We underestimated the windchill and had frozen cheeks and runny noses by days end. Instead of hiking to the top of Flattop Mountain, we took a stroll down Powerline Trail and watched all the cross-country skiing pros wiz by.

Aaron enjoyed playing (hiding?) in the trees and making the snow fall on our heads.

And I tried being cute for pictures.

Allll of the photos we took together came out blurry- but it don’t matta! I’m sure you can still imagine how gorgeous the view was. And Happy MLK Day! If it weren’t for Dr. King, Aaron and I wouldn’t have even been able to enjoy the snow together on Saturday. Here’s to you, Dr. King!

Christmas Photos Part II and Life Updates

In case you’re not annoyed with our faces yet, here are some of the rest of our Christmas photos. These ones were taken around Turnagain Arm- a quick 10 minute drive from our home. Again, the day was cold, but we had fun snuggling up.

And! Here are some updates about our lives in the new year:

  1. We just returned from the east coast and had the best family holiday ever! We ate tons of food, had lots of laughs, held lots of babies, danced at an Irish Pub, watched Ohio State lose, got lots of little treasures from Aaron’s Grandma, and saw The Transiberian Orchestra!
  2. Aaron has Saturday, Sunday off this year! Woohoo! That means he gets to hang out with me eveeeeen more and we get to adventure around together for the remainder of the winter!
  3. I started taking spin classes over at Anchorage Cycle & Yoga and they are killer. 
  4. Aaron is still playing hockey on his work league and most games I’m there to cheer him on.
  5. I’m still trying to navigate the world of being a Young Women’s leader.
  6. Aaron still loves his job.
  7. I still love my job. But am in the process of getting a real estate license as a fun side hustle.
  8. In two weeks I have another work conference… in Vegas. Guess who’s coming with me?!
  9. A week after Vegas Aaron and I will be leaving for our annual romantic anniversary celebration in a place far, far, far, far away. I’ll leave you guessing.
