I know it's been a month since we went to Colorado, but I thought I'd post some of the pictures I took. We had a really nice time there for New Year's Eve and a few days afterward. The place we stayed at was the Austria Haus, and if you ever visit Vail, I highly recommend staying there!

This was what greeted me upon first entering our room…

I didn't spend any time up on the mountain, so I didn't get any of the gorgeous mountain-top pictures, but I still enjoyed my quiet time in the village. I liked this window display in a little cupcake shop:

And this was the old bridge I walked across every day, into the village. It was also the way to the ski lift…

This was just to the left of the bridge…

And this was to the right…

Sophie loved the village candy shop best…

And I loved that they had Necco's! When I was growing up, my dad would always buy them for me when we stopped at gas stations on one of our many long family road trips… I always gave the black licorice-flavored ones to my brother and told him they were chocolate.

We walked up the side of a mountain for the New Year's Eve fireworks display…

And afterward, we walked through the village…

We ate at this pizzeria every night we were there, and twice for lunch. Don't miss it if you're ever in Vail!

Here's one of Soph and I in the hotel's elevator…

And here are some of Mike and Soph at the ice rink…

But the very best part of the whole trip was finding this sweet little place, nestled in the pines, just before crossing the bridge…

And it's a good thing I found it, because I went through the hotel's supply of Starbucks packets in the first hour and a half I was there.

Thanks for stopping by, and for all the sweet comments and emails about the Valentine's Stocking. I hope I got the kinks worked out and you were finally able to print it successfully!
