On Tuesday, Gomez’s friend and actress Bailee Madison posted a series of photos featuring the “Back to You” singer looking content and healthy during a snowy vacation.

According to TMZ, Gomez is healthy and happy to be home. The site notes that the photos were taken in Big Bear, California.

A source told People magazine, “She’s feeling much better and looking forward to getting back to normalcy. She’s spending time with friends and family.”

In October, TMZ reported that Gomez was hospitalized twice over the past few weeks, due to a low white blood cell count, a possible side effect experienced by kidney transplant patients.

During her second hospital visit, Gomez reportedly suffered an emotional meltdown. At the time, a source told People magazine, “She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point. She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues. She’s surrounded by close family and has a lot of support. She’s doing better now and is seeking treatment on the East Coast.”

Over the years, Gomez has been open about her struggle with anxiety and depression. In the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Selena revealed, “I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome. There won’t be a day when I’m like, ‘Here I am in a pretty dress — I won!’ I think it’s a battle I’m gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I’m okay with that because I know that I’m choosing myself over anything else. I’m starting my year off with that thought.”
