A Week Of Snow

I mentioned in my last post that I was boarding with my parents and boyfriend in the French alps over New Years. We left the day after Boxing Day, stayed on an overnight ferry and drove to Courchevel… (long day in the car I tell thee! Especially since the weather was so bad on our way up the mountain to our chalet, it took over an hour to do 3km!).

The rest of the week was mostly sunny, with good snow, with only one day with pretty bad weather! No injuries, a few films, countless baguettes, 3 flans, a Nutella crepe and a whole series of Frozen Planet later, we’re back home and getting ready to go back to work tomorrow! So here are some photos from our trip!

Now here’s the one day where visibility was really poor! Helpful when you’re trying to get down from over 2500m!

The week in the snow was an amazing holiday and tradition ever since I can remember! Sometimes you need another holiday to recover from a week of snowboarding but I’m feeling pretty chilled out and ready for 2014! ;)

What did you guys get up to over New Years? Have you ever been on a snow holiday?

See ya later 2013!

Apologies for the quiet week! Christmas was hectic between mine and the boyfriend’s families and then we had to pack for our winter holiday in the snow! You may have already seen from my instagram that we are snowboarding in Courchevel, the French Alps, along with my lovely mum and dad! Looking forward to spending New Years here too, makes a bit of a change! ;)

This brings me nicely into this post, which is a quick round up of my year in pictures. 2013 has been a good year and I’m hoping 2014 will be even better!

Travel wise, 2013 saw me taking the boyfriend to Prague, going on an amazing road trip around Florida in the summer, a work trip to Cologne that took about 9 months of blood, sweat and tears to plan and currently snowboarding in Courchevel! Not bad really!

This year marked a year of the boyfriend and I living together in our flat and we signed up for another year. It really has been amazing  (soppy alert) and I wouldn’t change a thing!

There’s been a lot of food, baking, coffee and prosecco along the way and good times with friends!

2013 also saw the start of Almost Apricot into what it is now, starting with a rebrand and name change. I’m looking forward to seeing where 2014 is going to take it!

So, my goals for 2014:

  • Definitely try to be healthier – maybe actually do some exercise rather than just talk about it!
  • Make time for projects I’ve wanted to do for a while.
  • Keep growing Almost Apricot, hopefully keeping you guys entertained and/or inspired!

It really does mean a lot that my tiny little corner of the internet is being read and I hope to bring you lots more throughout 2014!

Have a lovely New Years and see you in 2014!
