I spent this past week in Winter Park, Colorado
which just so happens to be one of my favorite places in the world.

fat flakes of snow were falling
and it was that perfect crisp-cold. HEAVEN.

I stayed at the ski-in ski-out, Iron Horse Inn this time.
it's a great place to stay if you ever find yourself in Winter Park :)

one of the nights, I went to Sombrero Stables at the YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch.
it was GORGEOUS.

I went on a horse-drawn sleigh ride with my family,
followed by a little steak dinner.

the sleigh ride was amazing.
there's no better way to get into the holiday spirit than hearing bells jingle on the giant friesian draft horses pulling your sleigh through mountain snow.

I highly recommend the ride to anyone and everyone.
be sure to dress warm!!
