Our 2nd annual trip to Mt. Washington on New Years Day.
We are fortunate to have vibrant and welcoming and generous friends, who began this tradition with us last year.
And met us at 6:30am today.
Ended the day with us, with a sushi dinner at 6:30pm.
These friends are gentle yet persistent, and I am grateful for their invitations and their generosity.
Which time and again gets us out of our comfort zone.
Enjoying a sunrise we would not have otherwise seen.
Considering things we might not have thought about.
Sharing food we all have such appreciation for.
We wondered today… why is it that another child’s lunch looks so interesting, far more interesting than the child’s own lunch?
BUT there is a catch – when taken out for dinner, or over at a friend’s for dinner… suddenly the child hunkers for their Mom’s usual fare?
Hmmm… that is about as deep as the thoughts went today.
It was a day of fresh air, warm sun, amazing company, and a bit of madness.
Since it used to take us 22-25 minutes to drive to the ski hill from our doorstep,
We are still adjusting to the 2-2.5 hour commute.
But, ah, the gorgeous snow awaits. So sparkly and fresh.
