Exciting News!!

Let me just say - Southwest Airlines is THE BOMBBBB!!!  Turns out I had 14,000 points from flying that airline every single time I fly.  So, on Monday I redeemed all my points (plus purchased a few more) and bought tickets to COLORADO!!!!  I got the best deal ever, like, I can't even explain how good of a deal.  I'm going skiing in the beginning of March with two of my best college friends.  I CAN'T WAIT!!

The above picture is of me and my freshman roommate, Briton.  This picture was taken on our graduation night from college :(  We were the best of friends during freshman year - we literally saved each other.  We both were having a pretty hard time adjusting, and we grew so close because of it.  Briton grew up in Vail, CO, so most weekends that year we went home to her parents house to SKI!  Her dad really was the one who taught me to ski.  I basically knew nothing before they came along.  Briton still lives in Boulder (lucky!) and we'll be staying with her family in Vail for most or all of the trip this year - it's gonna be nostalgic!  

Emily, in the above picture, is also coming!  She lived in the same dorm as Briton and me freshman year.  Emily and I were really close that year, but didn't see much of each other after that.  Then, on one of the first nights of senior year, we saw each other out on the town and reconnected!!  I'm so happy we did.  We spent most of senior year together.   This picture is also obviously from graduation.  Emily now lives in VA where she goes to law school.  We talk often but I haven't seen her since college!!!! 

Side note and funny story, Drew also lived in the same dorm as the three of us but we didn't know each other, AND I met Drew the same night that I reconnected with Emily!  I'll have to write about that soon....

Here's just a random picture I found from a ski trip - I think this is Keystone.  I can't wait to be there!!!! Look at that sky... My skiing has definitely gone "downhill" (no pun intended) since I left college, but I'm sure I'll get back in the swing of things.  I can't wait to spend time with these wonderful ladies - they mean the world to me.

On a separate note, I'm extremely jealous of the life my parents are/will be living in London.  During her stay last week my mom sent me this picture of her running along the Thames with Tower Bridge in the background...casual.

Go mom!

1. What's the last trip you went on?

2. Do you like to ski? Snowboard? Neither?

3. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
