I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday! After celebrating a wonderful Christmas Eve here with Jake’s family, we got the heck out-of-town for a little winter vacation. We met up with Paleo Mom & Dad, my sister Shelley (the other Paleo Girl), her husband, their 3 boys and their dog for a snow-filled getaway in Lake Chelan.
For the first time in I-have-no-idea-how-long, it felt like we had an honest to god vacation. And it felt GOOOOOD. I ditched the work emails, blogging, editing, facebooking (for the most part) and just hung out with the family. We all made it to Chelan in time for Christmas dinner and spent the week sledding, snowmobiling (twice!), shopping, cooking, watching Harry Potter (my nephews finally caught Potter Fever!), and playing games. It went by way too fast, but luckily I was able to snap a few photos to remind us of our fun holiday. We even managed the rare group family photo when we went to Leavenworth for an afternoon!
After roaming the roads for about 20 minutes, in 2 cars, we finally came across this gorgeous little spot on the river. I was thrilled – what a perfect backdrop! Thanks to the tripod and a super-cooperative and well-prepared family, we were able to get these shots in about 5 minutes.
So, while I am sure many of you are here because you’ve gone Paleo as your New Year’s Resolution, or you’re just looking for some info to help keep you on track, let today’s post be a simple reminder to stop and enjoy life now and then… and let the stresses take a backseat when you can. That’s going to be one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself. Besides going Paleo, of course :)
Did you do something fun to unwind over the holidays? Do share!
Enjoy some pics from our holiday… and, as always, Happy Eating :)
Oh, and in case you’ve been wondering, Hitch & Sophi are fully primal dogs – would you expect any less from our kids? Full post on that coming soon :)
