And just like that, all the planning, all the recipes, all the cooking, smiles and worn out evenings - Christmas is over:( poo. It went by so fast! I didn't get to see near enough of my friends but I had a wonderful time with the family, my brother, sis-in-law, my sweet, sweet niece and all of my uncles and aunts. It was wonderful!
I enjoyed cooking for the family and I'm pretty sure mom and dad were very thankful too. We ate GOODDDDDD:)!
I was able to ride my bike every day that I needed to, walked in the park with dad a couple of times, caught the local group ride and had fun with all the heckling and before I knew it, I was back on a plane to Colorado. But I was sure glad to be home, flying over the snow capped mountains, the high mountain air and all things I love - this is home.
Now it's go time, time to become a full bore cyclist again. The season is approaching FAST and team e-mails have started, fitting bikes has started and camp organization has started. I'm excited about the upcoming season, I'm always excited about bike racing. So next up is a bit of skiing here before heading somewhere warm for lots of miles. I'll update when I get somewhere and get settled into a routine(a week or so). Until then, here are some pictures from home and traveling.....

Eating: for dessert: grapefruit- pealed and segments pulled apart, sprinkle with sugar, place on parchment paper lined sheet pan. Broil for 2-3 min. While that is cooking, mix plain greek yogurt with honey, then place the grapefruit segments on top. YUM!
