I have a cold. I was supposed to ski today. I didn't. Which should have sucked, really. But instead it was an unexpectedly wonderful day.
A day spent piddling around home, then town -- this adorable little town -- in the sunshine. Running errands. The library, the post office. Stopping for a favorite lunch treat. Bumping into friends on the street.
What a fantastic day.
Days like this remind me of everything I love about mountain towns, and some of the forgotten reasons that I started this little adventure in the first place.
I took a minute to soak it all in from a bench in the sunshine. This charmed little place, all with the backdrop of majestic peaks. Turns out I don't need to be on the mountain to have a great day, I am perfectly content just to know that it is there.
