Fun Fact: My favorite color has always been, and probably always will be, purple! When I was little my older sister loved pink so much that she would throw a fit if I wore it. We are 21 months apart in age, so pretty close. Our mom always dressed us alike, but would put McCoy in pink and by default, I wore purple. Ever since then, it’s been my favorite color. Honestly, I think stores don’t sell enough purple apparel, but you can rest assured, when they do, I buy it.
When I was in Italy I told Will I wanted to invest in more experiences together instead of exchanging Christmas gifts. After spending most of my semester creating experiences without him I felt pretty strongly about wanting to take a trip together. So, we did! We drove 8 or so hours to Snowshoe, WV, with his sister and her husband just after New Year. Will and I both learned to snowboard last year while on a family vacation. I learned to snow ski when I was three years old. My family goes on a ski trip almost every year. After I had surgery on my knee senior year of high school, I decided I would switch to snowboarding the next year, because many people have told me it is easier on your knees than snow skiing! And I concur. Although, we both had a rough time learning (Most people do! It’s a lot of falling and getting back up just to fall again!) how to snowboard, it was definitely worth it! Will and I had so much fun boarding together. I feel like he’s always dragging me to sporting events, and I’m always making him do things I like to do. It was far more enjoyable spending our time doing something we both love.
Now, back to the apparel! My purple sweater is under $20 and super soft. I paired it with my black Topshop denim that I constantly wear on repeat, warm UGGs, and a little beanie. The temperatures were below zero while we were there so layers were key!
