Snippet of Life: Tahoe Road Trip from My iphone


I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! We had a weekend full of celebration and milestones! My family rented a cabin in Tahoe, so Zan and I did a little (eight hour!) road trip up the state of California ; ) We LOVE road trips and being in a car with Zan for that long is actually something I look forward to, haha! Thanksgiving Day was amazing. Food, family, a giant fireplace, snow and all of us in a cozy log cabin. I couldn’t have wished for a better way to spend it. It was also my Dad’s birthday on Thanksgiving Day! I had to bake some extra treats for him so I ended up making an apple pie, pumpkin pie, chocolate cake and snickerdoodles, his favorite cookie. One night Zan and my little brother decided to have a fry-off and fried everything in site. They fried things like Twinkies, Oreos, cheese, pickles and even my snickerdoodle ice cream sandwich, which actually tasted delicious! Oh and most importantly we have a new little addition to our family! My cousin Jenna, is now a mommy to one healthy and very sweet baby boy : ) We couldn’t be more thrilled! Here are some pictures below of my favorite things on this trip. Tomorrow I will have a few more photos taken from Thanksgiving Day!

Some captions for the pics:

One of us (and it wasn’t me!) ordered a Candy Cane Cocktail… Oh how I can’t wait to have one of these!
My belly is growing and the Turkey dinner didn’t help in any way!
A delicious decaf-soy latte in a small cafe in downtown Truckee
The new addition to the family! He’s the most perfect and adorable baby
We stopped at the famous Madonna Inn for a slice of cake. The whole hotel and restaurant are pink! Amazing!
We also stopped at one of my favorite restaurants to see the most ridiculously-talented chef, Julie… who I might mention is younger than me and never even went to cooking school!! She’s the head chef at Thomas Hill Organics in Paso… LOVE HER!
PS… The countdown to Christmas starts in TWO DAYS!!!

    Beautiful pics Eden. This looks like such a lovely Thanksgiving weekend!
    My entire extended family always goes away to a camp each Canadian Thanksgiving for the weekend and it’s always such a special time of relaxation and rejuvenation! It’s made our family so close and I look forward to this special getaway each year!

    I love Tahoe, I’ve been there 4 years ago during my trip in the west coast. You can imagine how amazing could be Madonna Inn for a Italian visitor. I remember that I couldn’t finish my pancake dish.
