There is more to life than increasing its speed. ~Ghandi

 

Last week I had the opportunity to take a few days off work to go on a ski trip. It was absolutely fantastic!! I loved being in the fresh mountain air exercising my body, laughing with people, and having fun skiing in light, fluffy powder. I couldn’t believe it was early April and the snow could be so good!!
