Anniversary planning

Our 3rd anniversary is coming up - December 31st. The last two years we went to San Francisco for a little vacation. SF is a very nice city full of fun things to do, but not really the best choice for a winter vacation, as we discovered. It rains a lot! So this year we tried to think of someplace we could go that would be sunny and warm, yet not too expensive. Mexico, perhaps. Alas, it is spendy to fly there and would take too long to drive. So we decided, why not give in to the winter and go somewhere snowy? Mt Shasta, California, here we come. Only about an hour drive south of us and a tourist destination. I have been researching what to do and where to stay in the area. So far, I know where we are staying for the first two nights - The Railroad Park Resort. The dining facilities will be closed in the winter, but the little caboose rooms are so cute and cozy. We will then move to Mt. Shasta City where there are lots of shops, galleries and restaurants. We hope to go skiing at the ski park and also snow shoeing. There should be plenty to keep us occupied.

I love the snow - can I come?? Just kidding I will be at home in England - rainy chilly England. I can't wait though. That sounds like it will be an amazing 3rd Anniversary..

Tracy, That sounds wonderful! Why did you get married in December? Where did you get married?

We were married in Portland (even though we were living in Medford at the time.) I had a lot of friends in the Portland area who would not have come down here for the wedding, plus our out of town family could fly into Portland more easily.

The December date was also due to family. Denis' sister is a teacher and my brother is in seminary, so planning for a school break was ideal. His family could only come the weekend before New Year's and my family could only come the week after New Year's. I was in a serious quandry about which weekend to choose when a coworker suggested New Year's Eve which was a weekday! I had never thought of that. That date fell during the period that all could come.
