10 Years Ago….

... I was a senior at Carlsbad High School and this summer will be my 10 year reunion. What a scary thought!?! With that said it’s amazing how time flys when you're having fun. In ten years I’ve traveled through Europe, Asia, and Central America, had some amazing jobs, met some amazing people and ended up in a small town in the mountains. Here’s to another great 10 tens.

It's Official

That's right I'm going back to Italy this summer for more adventures with some of my favorite people. You know who you are! Tickets are booked, bags will be packed, unpacked and packed numerous times before  leaving for the airport. Good wine, food, and people...let the planning began!

For past adventures in Italy check out posts from summer of '08. Or read my favorite expat blog Ciao Down!

Powder Day...

At Heavenly.....

Nick in firebreak... if you look closely you can see the town

Today marked my first real powder day of the season.  Although, we've had numerous powder days and even a powder week today was my first real powder day. We all knew it was coming, but you just don't know how much snow is really going to fall until it comes. RSN said 10" and I was out the door heading to Heavenly ready to score me some freshies!

I was a bit excited after the first POW run through WP

Any powder day makes you feel like a kid in a candy store. It's days like today that remind me why I moved to Tahoe and why I continue to stay. With around 3 months left in the season I plan to lock in a  few more powder days!

HAHA and remember I fall... this was during the last lap in firebreak
