Spring is here in Lake Tahoe! I know my last post was all about blizzards, but, as they say, in California "if you don't like the weather, wait a day", because it changes all the time. It has been warm enough for t-shirts, late night walks, and lots of outdoor beer drinking. Last night our neighbors dug out our fire pit and had a 70's themed barbecue, complete with fondue, ponchos, and benches carved into the snow. It was so delicious!
The snow has been a little gross (ie a sticky death trap) lately because of the changing weather conditions, so I've been snowboarding a lot more, because every time I've been skiing in this slush I've wanted to go way too fast and, well, results haven't been pretty. In the skiing world we call the type of fall I'm fairly well known for around these parts "yard sale-ing" because your skis, poles, and other possessions (sunglasses, errant gloves, change, your car keys) end up getting strewn out over the mountain. So, snowboarding it is for the near future!
I was so excited to pull this dress out of my closet because it is so perfect for this weather. I love how it looks paired with brown. I got it at a thrift store in Reno and altered it because before it was a maxi dress. I still can't pull off the maxi look, as much as I desperately want to! The rest of the outfit is thrifted too. One of the other ski instructors provided me with a beautiful new addition to my charm necklace, a crystal that he picked out for me and welded wires to so that I could wear it on a pendant. It's absolutely beautiful, and it's funny that I've been wanting a crystal for so long and then one came across my path!
What have you been doing to enjoy the weather and celebrate spring?
