When I woke for our last day of snowboarding I was happy to find that, though my wrist was still swollen, bruised, and sore, it wasn’t terribly painful and I thought it probably wasn’t broken after all. I’d iced it thoroughly the night before, taken plenty of Advil, and slept with it braced. I was even feeling confident enough to go riding that day!
So we suited up and drove to the mountain, but after talking it through on the drive, Blake and I decided to play it safe and not risk injuring my wrist further if I happened to fall on it again. So we changed our plans and had a lazy afternoon in the village instead. We parked, changed into our post-snowboarding outfits that we always bring along, and made a first stop for coffee.
I’m so drawn to things with a retro or vintage vibe these days that I had to buy this rainbow trim alpaca sweater as soon as I saw it. It’s the softest sweater that’s ever touched my skin and is so incredibly warm! I paired my vintage fit jeans, yellow sunnies, and yellow high top Vans for a full-on retro look. I also took my long sherpa overcoat from Madewell last season, but it was so nice and sunny that I didn’t really need it.
After coffee, we walked around leisurely waiting for lunchtime to arrive. It was a perfect slow afternoon and a nice change of pace that we don’t often experience on our snowboarding trips. I definitely missed our mountain time but I’m thankful for the spontaneous date afternoon Blake and I had instead! And speaking of retro style, I had to get some pictures of Blake’s outfit. His shirt looks straight out of Saved by the Bell and he constantly gets compliments on his gold Casio calculator watch! #funnybuttrue
We ate a delicious lunch with a view overlooking the river, and then strolled around for a bit longer while our food settled. Then we drove back to the house to wind down the rest of evening with our baby girl and family and got to mark another wonderful trip in the books!
