If you know me in real life, you would know I am one of the most stubborn people in the world. Maybe THE most stubborn person in the world. I’m definitely up there. It’s not my favourite quality about myself, but it is what it is. I’ve been that way since birth, so it probably won’t change anytime soon.
Over the years, Ken has figured out how to work his way around this lovely personality trait of mine and some how makes it work. One way he does this is by not forcing me to do anything. He knows it he asks me to do something over and over, the less and less likely I am to do it. I’m super annoying, I know. My friends and family always say “Don’t ask her to do it, then maybe she will.”
Skiing last weekend was one of those things. I woke up in the morning and just wasn’t feeling like driving up the mountain (that made me car sick last time) and skiing all day. I’m a terrible skier (I’m still at the frustrating part of learning), but I do go every so often because Ken loves snowboarding so much. Anyways, I just wasn’t feeling it, and he knew it. So he kept his mount shut, let me hum and haw over breakfast, and come to my own decision about going or not – without feeling like someone was forcing me to go.
In the end, I knew once I got up there, and got over the motion sickness, I would really enjoy myself. And oh boy did I! Yes, I did have a few good bails – both off the chair lift which is always extra scary. But I brushed myself off and snapped my skies back on for a few more runs.
Ken and I both always look forward to a good Apres ski. Especially on such a perfectly beautiful day with hardly a cloud in the sky! We were surrounded with cute dogs, an open fire and nachos – all with the most breathtaking views around us! We were in heaven! It really makes you take a big deep breath in and not take a minute on this earth for granted. Thank god I didn’t stay at the cabin that day!
This one was taken moments before I was taken out by a kid on skies, haha! Boy little guy.
We are also on the 6 month count down to the wedding this month! How lucky am I! Marrying this handsome ginger and high school sweetheart of mine in just a few short months!
We also vlogged the whole day – from arriving on the mountain to driving back home to Vancouver!
