I don’t think Beaver Creek could have come up with a more perfect slogan. Rusty and I had the opportunity to head up there for a few days of R&R. Well, sorta. Rusty got to present at the Venture Capital in the Rockies conference, while I got some R&R in the hotel room.
While he was at the conference, I spent the day reading, napping, and vegging out in front of the TV. I did peel myself away from my bed and go watch Rusty give his presentation. It was so fun to actually hear the “real live” version! I have spent the last two years listening to him practice and perfect his presentation. He did such a good job. I was really proud! One of his investors came up after and jokingly said, “You did such a great job it brought tears to my eyes!” Then I got to meet many of the people I’ve been hearing about since the beginning of BlogFrog—investors, mentors and friends. It is so nice to be able to have a face to put to all the names. We got to attend a fabulous dinner at the Saddle Ridge Restaurant, compliments of HRO, and then take a dip in one of the 5 hot tubs at the Park Hyatt.
The next day was spent skiing at Beaver Creek, which is one of the most beautiful resorts I have ever been to! The runs were HUGE, and the scenery was breathtaking. I thought I was a pretty good skier until I got on the slopes with Rusty—He DUSTED me every time. I was exhausted by the end of the day! It was so fun to spend an entire day with each other, uninterrupted by the pitter patter of sweet tiny feet.
A HUGE thanks to my amazing, wonderful, friend Jen who watched the kids for us.
