Spring Break

Spring Break in the Snow

My senior year was going great and spring break was just around the corner. Once again I had nothing planned but thankfully, spur of the moment a few of my friends invited me to join them on their snowboarding trip to Colorado. I was so excited to go back and immediately said yes!

My Aunt/Godmother lives in Littleton, which is about a half hour away from Denver. I have visited her a few times in the past when I was a little younger but I was ready to take on CO with my friends.

If you have never seen the mountains or experienced views unlike nothing you’ve ever seen before, I 100% recommend that you check out Colorado. Being in the mountains while riding is one of the best feelings in the entire world. It feels like you have no worries and your free to just float down the snowy drifts. I am looking forward to the next time I can go back and maybe one day actually move there because really how could you not fall in love with this!

South Padre Here We Come!

Spring break usually consisted of me working, working and more working but my junior year, I was determined to change that. I moved into a house with the same girls I lived with in my apartment the previous year. We always talked about going on a trip somewhere for break but could never make the plans set in stone and actually do it.

South Padre was finally decided on. My roommates Becca and Kortney and good friend of ours that lived down the road, Kaci and I were taking a 26 hour road trip across the country. On the way there we made countless memories that I will never forget.

Finally we arrived in Texas! I was so excited to spend the next 5 days on the beach with my best friends. There was lots of partying, eating and relaxing and well worth the 26 hour drive. It was an awesome experience and can’t wait to go on many other adventures with my friends.

It is always important to make time for the people you care about in your life and let your hair down every once in a while for a little relaxation. Sometimes dealing with all the stress with papers, projects and exams it is nice to just take a break! Go on Spring Break and keep those memories with you forever. You aren’t going to remember what grade you got on that math test 10 years from now but I can guarantee I will always remember good times spent with friends.
