Always wanted to experience the fresh powder in BC? Active Travel Expert Bruce was there earlier in the year, giving us all FOMO.

Had a mean weekend with the whanau ❤ #hittingtheslopes #snowydays

That time we thought we would try skiing with the family ⛷ I actually loved it, Jason was snow boarding and our girls quit after a 2 hour lesson. Oh well ... we had fun 😂

We had the best first day on the slopes on Saturday ⛷ we had 2 lessons and we managed to get down the baby slopes without falling over! Woop 🎿⛷🎿⛷🎿

Realised I never posted a finished pic of the Puy St Vincent piece - here it is. First time I tried a slightly different landscape and loved how it turned out :-) also it just reaffirmed how much I like working in monotone. Once framed this is off to @wills_art_warehouse .

Oh my, the things you come across! This is what I love about prints. They can become random finds that bring back a whole heap of memories that come shooting to the fore from just one image.
.
This is me at least 20 years ago (am I really that old now...? 😱) It was taken during one of the RAF Snowboarding Championships in either the Giant Slalom or Dual Slalom. I don’t even look like I’m trying and no helmet too...! How things were different then. .
I must be getting softer in my old age, because I look at this and it reminds my of the times hubby spent on the slopes teaching me to snowboard and how supportive he was, and still is, with everything I do. If I wanted to be his girlfriend I had to learn to snowboard. Yes, he did say that to me! I only ever attended 3 of the RAF Snowboarding Championships, but I came away from each one the female champion. Not something I boast about, but now I see this and think that those achievements were as much hubby’s as they were mine. I put the effort in to learning, mostly because I wanted to keep up with him on the slopes, not because I wanted to race. He was just pleased I was enjoying it and wanted to go out riding with him.
.
It makes my heart swell to know that hubby’s support in anything I do is always unwavering and he has the patience of a saint! Our learning styles are very different; he’s very methodical whereas I’m more hap-hazard and may have to crash a few times before something makes sense, so there have been times where I’ve caused him some worry! The support and encouragement though is still there, every time. .
So, from just one small print, all these memories and emotions have been stirred up. It’s quite something that a piece of paper can do that. We should get images printed more often. Sifting through them online or on your phone doesn’t have the same impact somehow.
