What’s in My Bike Basket? Featuring the Author of The Night Before Christmas in Ski Country, Suzanne Brown


You know when you meet those people you connect with right away and you know they are going to do amazing things? Meet Suzanne Brown, author, dietician, mother – hilarious, warm and friendly, and talented to boot! We are so excited that she decided to share what’s in her basket because we wanted to see her newly released children’s book, The Night Before Christmas in Ski Country. As Suzanne shares in her blog, this book is a labor of love – for her family, and all the people who are going to be making this book a part of their holiday tradition. Without further ado, here’s Suzanne!


Whenever Christmas season comes around, I’m like a little girl again. Filled with anticipation and wonder and pure joy at the happiness around me. So in my basket I have all the delightful items that make me happy.

Crystal Champagne Flutes:

These were a wedding gift. My husband and I have celebrated life’s amazing, poignant, and glorious moments with these for the past 19 years.

My Rubber Chicken

It’s for me. Not our dog. And the man who owned the pet store actually tried to talk me out of buying it! It makes a super hilarious squeaky moan that makes every one in our family giggle.  Has a special place in the kitchen to help relieve tension.

The Night Before Christmas in Ski Country

I wrote this book for our daughter and son. I wanted them to have a Christmas story that reflects our life in the mountains of Colorado. It was just released and is almost sold out! You can visit me at www.sbrownbooks.com for peeks inside.

Celestial Seasonings Decaf Mint Green Tea

Warming in the winter. Refreshing in the summer. And dumping an entire mug on my Mac actually made it run better. (Definitely do NOT try this at home!)


I love to travel! I’ve visited over 17 countries and plan to see the entire world someday!


I am a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and these keep my family healthy throughout winter.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

My ultimate favorite treat. And I don’t have any warm, gooey ones. Better go preheat the oven. I’ll save you one.


Special thank you to Suzanne for sharing more about her and best wishes on the continued success of your new book. May it bring joy to children across Colorado this holiday season. And don’t you just love these snowy mountain photos?! Beautiful!
