Our First Vacation as Newlyweds

Happy Monday everyone! I've been anxiously waiting to post this blog entry and I'm so excited to share it with you! Last week, my husband and I took an amazing trip to Colorado for a much needed vacation. This was our first trip after our wedding and we were happy to share it with our great friends.  We stayed in Avon and snowboarded at Beaver Creek.  Did you know Beaver Creek is ranked one of the top spots for a destination wedding?  I can definitely see why. 

Our trip was (in the words of snowboarders) EPIC! This was my first time seeing snow and it was everything I thought it would be - BEAUTIFUL. It was so serene and peaceful...and very cold. We shredded the "nar nar" (that's snow).  I came back extremely tired (from altitude sickness) with several bruises, but I had a great time and can't wait to go back! Here are some pictures from our trip.

Going up the ski lift. I am not a fan of heights.

That's me! I finally got it after a few hours of constantly falling. FUN!!!
