Lauren Scruggs Heads to Steamboat for the Weekend

You may remember hearing about Lauren Scruggs a few weeks back. Lauren was the model and editor of Lolo Magazine who mistakenly walked into a plane propeller when disembarking from a flight this past December. The young girl ended up losing her left eye and hand — but was very lucky to be alive.

Lauren has not let this accident keep her down. Not only has she left the hospital, but she even took a ski trip this past weekend at Steamboat Springs in Colorado. While at the resort she  tweeted out a photo of herself with a friend  and another with a group of friends watching a ski jumping competition. These are the first photos Lauren has released since the accident.

While it is a devastating thing to lose both an eye and hand after such an ordeal, it is inspiring to see someone push past tragedy and continuing to embrace life.
