Last week Dominic and I and some of our friends went up to Pagosa Springs, CO and Durango, CO to enjoy the slopes of Wolf Creek and Purgatory respectively. Needless to say, we had a blast! The snow was good, although having some fresher snow would've been even better, the mountains weren't overly crowded (I suppose going in the middle of the week doesn't hurt), and the company was exceptional!
While we were piddling about the small town of Pagosa Springs we wandered into an antique shop we'd been in on a previous trip. We had found some cool vinyls and wanted to know if there were any new ones that we absolutely have to have even though, at the moment, we have no way to listen to them....Anyways, we found a really cool old tin with a picture of peacocks on it and the label of "California Dreams".
At the end of May Dominic graduates and our dream is to find jobs and move to Cali, so far so good, he is getting some offers from out that way. I decided to return to the shop the next day while he and everyone else was snowboarding Wolf Creek and buy the tin as a surprise. We will fill the tin with any extra bills we have in hopes of being able to use it to put a down payment on a house when we get out there, so it really is our tin of California Dreams.
Did you go on any cool trips for the holidays?
