Swiss Winter

We had an incredible second winter in Switzerland! Daniel had a great off season, resting and then training hard for the summer and I worked hard on my skiing, completing my first red AND black slopes! I also won a friendly staff slalom race :)

We spent our first Christmas in Switzerland and we had great fun decorating the house when Daniel's parents visited. We had a real tree and blue and silver themed decorations. Here are a sample of photos of our activities over the winter:

Beautiful winter sunset over the Jura mountains

Amazing spa retreat in Adelboden in the Bernese Oberland

Lucky birthday girl!

No leaves on the trees or vines but our village is still beautiful :)
