Playing In The Snow

The incense is rising, reggae music bumping, coffee flowing, and morning light a-shinin’…….the perfect time to get my blog on!!

As a kid, whenever it snowed I’d be outside playing in it all day long.  I wasn’t concerned with WHY I liked it so much; I just knew it was awesome.  Fast forward to my 35th year and the white stuff still gets me giddy.  My older cousin Ryan has always had a zest for recreating like a boss, and whenever we get together adventure ensues.  Yesterday, two grown men took toys into the mountains and played in the snow….like a couple kids.  Sure, the toys were bigger and faster than they used to be, but the motivation was the same.  Frozen fingers, amazing views, soft snow, face-peeling speeds, and spending time with a guy I’ve looked up to my whole life made yesterday one for the books!
