With the welcomed slower pace of the week after Christmas, it was fitting that my husband and I rang in the New Year in Big Bear Lake.
The calm and stillness of the fresh fallen snow, the quite of the mountains, and being surrounded by white was refreshing and peaceful. It the was the perfect way to end last year and begin this one.
It was also nice to spend time alone with my brother and sister-in-law at their cabin, something we never do. My bother-in-law is a wonderful cook, and on New Year's Eve he made us a fabulous dinner. After eating he disappeared outside...
When we went out a bit later to see what he was doing, we found him building us a sledding run! We had talked about sledding all day, and thanks to Craig this group of 40 and 50 something's spend New Year's Eve sledding in the dark, with our laughter echoing into the night!
I haven't had so much fun in a long time! We fell off our sleds, crashed into the house, slid off our track, and had a blast! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time... I hope it's sign of the good things 2010 has in store for us!
