WW 60: One-on-One Time in the Mountains


Hello everyone.  So I’m back in my laundry room-office in NYC sharing some of the last photos from our wonderful trip to the Alps.  How refreshing to spend so much time outside and in the mountains.

Here’s an antique chair lift on a cloudy day that reminded me of what you see in the Barbar books when Barbar goes skiing!

Hedley stepped out of ski school one day for some Mommy and son special time including lunch at this mountain cabin.  When you’re the oldest of five, being with your younger siblings can really wear you down (or so he says, and not in those words!).

After feasting on lamb chops and the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever eaten, we returned regenerated to the slopes.

At the end of the day we had chocolate crepes in a little place in town with a collection of vintage tea pots.

Strolling home, liberated from the weight of our ski boots, the sky opened up above us into a deep blue.  Holding my son’s hand in mine, I marvelled at it’s size.  The church bells rang and we breathed in the fresh, mountain air, as we walked home together greatful for the day we’d had.
