Never ever miss an opportunity to thump tails, laugh doubled over, fall into the snow, chase, lead, listen, tell, look straight into the eyes of, or hug, your lifetime friends! 💘
This group of dear friends, that started forming in the late 90s, has got the 🔑 to my heart’s delight!! 💕
As a way to make sure and make time to do what we love to do together, we made up an annual ski tour around our awesome trails in #anchorage...
12 years ago!! 🎉 We change the route every year. It’s on the Hillside or the Chester Creek or Coastal Trails, at Russian Jack Park or the APU trails. Sometimes we move at about 1mi./hour, so we dress warm! Sometimes we have a support crew, sometimes we reroute to avoid large animals on the trails, sometimes kids, sometimes dogs, always treats, sometimes (just a couple of times actually) a very lucky dude joins us. He has to be willing to wear a #skhoop!
Some years someone’s not there because they moved away, or had a 👶🏼 or a surgery or had to work (this is a REALLY hard one to swallow!) A ritual... a celebration! I couldn’t help but keep cheering the whole way! 👏👏We’ve done so well and we’re so lucky!! 🏆🍀💕
Grab your gang and get out there! You just need one taker to get a little momentum going!
