Walking Down an Abandoned Road

Abandoned Road

Abandoned Road

Here are a few quick pictures that I snapped before we got a deluge of snow. Yesterday we got about a foot and over the next few days we're supposed to get between 3-5 feet. The skiing today was awesome, so much powder! I'm really excited to get a ton more skiing days in; I feel like every day I improve so much.

I really need to get myself some snow tires. I had a little bit of a scary time on the way to our employee holiday party and spun out on the road twice. Both times I was only going 20mph! The party was so much fun and I won the cookie baking contest. I baked these chocolate pecan turtle cookies if you're interested in trying out the winning recipe.

Thanks for all of your comments about dressing for snow. I'm definitely going to be trying some of your tips out, especially doubling up on my tights.
Boots, Dress, Coat: Thrifted
Fisherman Sweater: Topshop

Abandoned Road

This road is so beautiful. I think it still gets used because it was plowed on the day I passed it. I'm pretty sure it is a forest service road because it doesn't seem to lead anywhere but deep into the woods. I'm excited to take lots more walks down it, especially if they keep it plowed.

Do you have any secret places that you always like to return to?

I can't believe you moved!!! I just flew into JFK last night and I was thinking of what a terrible book club member I am, and how beautiful your post on the red shoes was and I was thinking, gosh I hope I get to see Lucy in New York only to find out that you are now a ski instructor in Tahoe! I went on many a ski trips to Tahoe when I was at Stanford and I was always that lameo who stayed in the hottub the whole time because I was too afraid to ski!
