Perfect Moment Monday -- Hanging Out With Friends

Loralie and I hanging out mid-afternoon. Perfect!
Each week I participate in Perfect Moment Monday, sponsored by the blog, According to Lavender Luz, "Perfect Moment Monday" is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect Moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between." And so, here is a Perfect Moment for this week.

Since we had a holiday (and a day off) last week, I went skiing with my hubby, Tom, one of my kids, Bryce, and my best friend, Loralie.

The morning was sunny and cool (but not cold). There was a dusting of fresh powder on the slopes...and we were there to enjoy it.

That was already perfect...but it kept getting better.

About 2 p.m., we sat on the deck, soaking in the sun, and enjoyed a beer. We visited, talked about our day of skiing, previewed the week ahead...and just had fun begin together in such a beautiful setting.

Since our closest ski resort is small and mostly Western Slope locals ski here regularly, we typically see lots of people we know in the lodge. In fact, there is a group of families who we see skiing almost every time we are up skiing.

I am SO blessed.

I love Colorado skiing. I really enjoy the experience of planning for, packing up and skiing the entire day with friends and family. And when I was sitting on the outside deck, enjoying the sunshine, snacks, a beer and especially the company of my dear friends and family...I realized that I had just lived, witnessed and appreciated yet another Perfect Moment!

Indeed perfect! Well, if you like skiing and beer.

But mostly if you like friends and family and sunshine :-)

I am here from the Perfect Moment Monday links on Lori's blog. I shared one for the first time today and am really enjoying following the blog trail now...

That does sound like a perfect moment! I do love spending time with family and friends, as well as drinking a beer or two.

Though I have only tried skiing a few times (and it didn't go well), I have been told that it is a totally difference (and much better) experience in places like Colorado! The times I have gone and tried were in Wisconsin and Michigan (not too far from where I live in Illinois).

Thank you for sharing!

It doesn't get much more perfect than this!
The best thing about your Perfect Moment Monday posts is that you always find something to be grateful for. Once you have a "gratitude attitude," it seems that more and more perfect moments flow your way.
I am grateful for our friendship and your positive attitude! Keep them coming.
