Today, on the shortest day of the year, our babysitter Abby came over at 3 and Patrick and I headed out to the Upper Buskin River for a cross country ski. It was beautiful. Skiing is my favorite type of date with Patrick. Being outside, exploring, exercising, talking, laughing, the quiet...I could go on and on.
It took a few minutes for me to get into the ski. For some reason I was worried about getting cold and wasn't 100% set on going. ... 20 minutes into the ski, I chimed in "Patrick! I'm having a really good time!"
And I was. The light was incredible...setting behind the mountains. The snow was fluffy and very ski-able. And the company~~ So nice to have some time to ski and laugh with Patrick.
After skiing we headed off to the local brewery for a few "End of the World" drinks. It was crowded and my favorite spot was by the warm woodstove talking with Patrick and friends.
