This week, I completed #23, "go ice skating". I went to Colorado to see my parents. We had an awesome day skiing at Copper Mountain, and topped it off with skating at the most charming skating pond ever to be in existence. Imagine drifts of snow around a circular pond, trees lit with Christmas lights, bonfire on one side, and no other people on the ice. As my dear friend Sara would have said, "aaaaaaaaamazing!" Unfortunately, my mom tore her ACL earlier this week, so it was just me and my dear papa, but Mom was an excellent photographer.
OK, it was really dark and hard to photograph. But you get the idea. Totally charming. #23, it was nice to know you.
