As I get older and my life changes, I’m always a little bit broken when I see traditions end. It’s something that I’ve been struggling with considering that I’ve grown up with a lot of family traditions. I am constantly telling myself that when a tradition ends, a new one should begin, but it’s easier said than done. Changes are inevitable and are a part of life. The more we try to fight them, the harder they become. I’m looking forward to the new traditions that I create, but as we all get older and life continues to take us in different directions, I always look back on our annual ski trips with a full heart.
