“You got down here fast!” Carter exclaimed surprised.
“Yeah, I just fell a bunch.”
“You did fine Krista.” I said smiling, I wasn’t sure if it was sympathetic or if the happiness from being back on the mountain was just showing on the outside no matter how hard I tried to stop it. “Do you guys want to go down the bunny slope a few more times?”
“We need to, but you sure don’t. Why don’t you just go ahead of us.” Shawn suggested.
“No way! I’ll stay with you guys, you just need to get you snow legs back, a few more runs and I can take you up Eskimo Express, its not to hard. Tomorrow we can take a thrill run down Panoramic Express at the top of the mountain.”
“If were ready by then.” Carter laughed.
“You will be.” I smiled.

That night we came back into the condo carrying our snowboards and laughing after a long and exhausting but completely wonderful day, but it was my favorite of my entire life. I had snowboarded all day with my three favorite people in the world and now I was sitting on the condo couch warm and comfortable with a steaming cup of hot chocolate in one hand and Carters fingers interlocked with mine in the other. I thought to myself, “Nothing could ruin this.”
