Down East: January 1965

I adore this fifty-year-old cover of Down East magazine! January is always special to me – it is my birth month (today is THE day!) and very much the heart of winter yet with the palpable sense of more light for longer days.

School’s out for summer!  Finally!  Happy last day to my school teacher husband and everyone else getting to summer break a little later this year due to all the snow days from winter 2012-13.

The First Post: J3 Junior Olympics – Sunday River, Maine

03134©anapolitano2010Seriously, how rad is this coach!  Her day on the hill involves wielding power tools, lugging gates and fencing, working with athletes – all while skiing.  And despite having a radio, Gerber knife and holster strapped to her — she still managed to accessorize and put together a personalized and inspired ensemble.

Also of note from this event, I watched wunderkind Mikaela Shiffrin win the Slalom – I now call her “Magic Girl”.  It is going to be very fun to watch her career. . .
