Bob Marley

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”

An epic trip to Vail Colorado

We had a sick opportunity to travel to vail Colorado and volunteer at the burton US open. The benefits that came along with it, were like a chest of gold. Free condo, free ski passes, free drink tickets and free food, meet pro snowboarders, watch an epic competition and the opportunity to be in an awesome ski village and out of park city Utah- I"ll take it!

So Wednesday night, me and my partners in crime (lindsay Clark and Kristina sandi), headed out on our 7 hour journey to vail Colorado! Girls trip! We loaded my jeep to the max and headed on our way. Expected arrival time: 3:30, actual time, around 4:45.

The first day we woke up, after our hour or 2 of sleep and headed to vail mountain for our volunteer work. We volunteered in the VIP tent, which honestly wasn't the most epic day. We worked with this know it all dude- that told us what to do and stood around. It was still fun, and we honestly didn't have to be in there that long, so we were happy when we were done. Then we took a ride break and hit the mountain. Now- might I catch you up on my cast situation- I had broken my arm previous to this trip, 6 weeks ago. I got my cast off the day before I left for this trip. I was excited to get back on my board- but nervous! I mean I m not a good rider yet and I'm still a beginner, but man I was riding so good the day I broke my arm, I just wanted to get on my board and be right at the level I left off, but I knew that wasn't going to happen. I ended up having a nice little ride, I was overly cautious tho and hit some flat spots. Those are the worse, because if you don't get efficient amounts of speed, your going to get stuck!

I'm skipping to the next day! This day was awesome!!! It was a dream to wake up and see powder every where! Powder is like floating on a cloud of joy! If you fall, you don't hurt yourself, it's like falling on a big, white, fluffy cloud. This day, we got to ride all day with minimum volunteer work to be done! It was awesome. I rode by myself this day, you know what they say, "no friends on powder days"! I did some fun blues though and my snowboarding was already improving. I had my wrist brace on, so I felt great about the situation!

During our stay in Vail, they had free concerts at night too. We saw macklemore and santigold played the next night which we unfortunately missed:( but macklemore was good, I'm gonna pop some tags!! Heheh

The last day, we did some fun volunteer work- got free burton shwag and drank a few beers ad watched the competition! It was a bluebird day and the sun was shining. Getting my goggle tan on:) ad yes I did get some sun! Then we had the private burton party which was epic. The she's were sick and we danced our little butts off.

Ad yes- I did hang with Sean whites mom and meet KELLY Clark and Louie Vito;) I had a pretty good time. It's good to get away sometimes. Oh and we did a hot tub sesh and drank champagne. Always gotta do that right? What's a weekend get away with out champagne?
