Weekend in Ovindoli

In March the weekend before Easter we went to Ovindoli to the mountains about 2 hours from Rome. I had booked two nights in Hotel Millepini near the centre of Ovindoli. I wanted to go skiing at least once this winter and see some snow before spring.

Daniele didn't come with us this time, because he had already been in Austria for a week with his friend. Armando doesn't want to ski anymore and Daniele doesn't enjoy our company so much in the slopes. He thinks we are too slow and don't want to ski in the most difficult slopes, at least me and Carlotta.

Anyway, we had two nice days in Ovindoli with lovely weather, good food at the hotel and enough slopes for one weekend. The snow was good up in the slopes, but quite wet when we skied down the last meters. Ovindoli isn't such a big ski center, so probably in one week you would get a bit bored skiing always in the same slopes, but for one weekend it was fine. This is a fast scrapbook layout of our weekend. Maybe I'll post more photos later.

Month in photos - March

March was a very nice month and we saw both spring flowers and snow.
In March me and the girls spent 3 days in Montefalco in Umbria where Sofia and Icoon partecipated in a show jumping competition. We stayed in a nice apartment in the beautiful Umbrian countryside.

Our apricot tree was flowering.
My dear friend from Finland was here in Rome and we met in Ostia where we chatted over cappuccinos and walked around. So nice we managed to see each other!
We went on a mini ski holiday to Ovindoli in Abruzzo for a weekend. It was me, my husband and the girls. Daniele had already been on a ski holiday in Austria. It was really nice and after that spring was more than welcome.
We had a relaxing Easter break. Went to Ostia to do some shopping and had an ice cream, celebrated our Easter at home with lots of good food and chocolate and on Easter Monday we had a barbeque party in the garden with our friends. The morning was a bit rainy so we sat on our porch, but then the sun came out.
I will link this post in where I also got the photo template and in
