The Best Week

We've been SO busy this past week with lots of fun things: a birthday dinner on Friday night at my favorite restaurant in Cortina, a big win for the team on Saturday night (they beat Brunico 4-0), a hike on Sunday that led to lunch up at the top of a mountain,  homemade pasta making (more on that soon), skiing, and then a trip to Fassa for the night on Tuesday.

Here's a few pictures, if you'd like to see:

Last Sunday was a beautiful, warm day so we decided to hike up the hill behind our house to see what was on the other side. We came across a ski and sledding area with a chair lift, which Ryan remembered went up to a rifugio that he had been to last year. So we hopped on and rode it up to have lunch at the rifugio and watch the skiers.

On Monday I did some skiing myself while the weather was so lovely. Isn't the sun incredible in this picture?! Finally the crazy Christmas-fur-people have departed so I had the slopes to myself which was fantastic.

On Tuesday we drove to Fassa which is a valley made up of several towns an hour and a half away. Our friends had invited us to dinner that night at this incredible restaurant where we ate things like soft boiled eggs with shaved truffles, thin slices of local trout, and pieces of red deer. The plates were amazing and the presentation was so artistic.


Have a good weekend and see you next week!
