Breckenridge x2

Lucky Me!  I got to go to Breckenridge TWICE this winter already!  It's such a beautiful little town full of window shopping, eating, gondola riding, and people watching.  What a treat it has been this month to visit twice.  Once with my BEST California friend (we met at BSF while we lived there for two years) and the second time with my sweet family.  Definitely thankful for these getaways!

Adrienne, my dear friend, flew out so we could have a moms weekend away!  It was something we had been talking about for a long time since we don't live near each other anymore.  We finally committed and booked the trip and boy was it all worth it!  We got to hang out by the fire, watch movies, take naps, walk the town, dine out without kids!  It was heavenly :)  I enjoyed this time so much with Adrienne and we are hoping to make this a tradition each year.....I'm sure Thomas and Nathan wouldn't mind :)

Thomas surprised me and the girls with a couple nights away the very next week and back to Breck I went.  It was a different trip to say the least, but another memorable and fun one for sure!  The girls loved all the snow!  I think their favorite parts were the gondola ride and throwing snowballs into the creek.  The little things...  We found this great toy store that had an entire play area in the back which the girls loved.  We also got to ride on the carriage while the (stinky) horses took us for a ride.  The highlight for me was watching the girls paint their own ceramic plate while seeing the snow fall outside.  It was so perfect!  We were so thankful for this relaxing family getaway filled with snowballs, movies and a great breakfast at the Blue Moose!

As thanksgiving has come and gone, I'd be silly to not say I"M THANKFUL!  For the God given, sweet friendship that Adrienne and I share and for my loving family who will always love me no matter what.  I'm forever grateful for these important people in my life and time that I've been blessed with to spend in a peaceful place.
