It's the last day of November and the first week of Advent around here, and what better way to get ready for the busyness of December than to steal away for the weekend. My extended Reimer family went to Elkhorn Resort for Friday, Saturday and Sunday to celebrate my Mom's milestone birthday and to enjoy being together. The weather was mild with just enough snow to feel cozy. We snapped this photo on the bridge at Clear Lake, where the air was so quiet we could hear the ice undulating in thin sheets on the surface of the lake. It was a glorious get-away and I feel refreshed and ready.
