Alaska – Kayaking

Alaska – Kayaking

One of the most exciting things we did during our Alaska adventure was kayaking on Prince William Sound!  WHAT??  I had never once thought about kayaking in Alaska, but as I was planning our trip I ran across kayaking tours offered by Sound Paddler.  I mentioned them to Gene, and he said, “BOOK IT!”  So I did! We took the 8:30 AM tunnel to Whittier, and Sound Paddler greeted us at the shop as soon as we got there.  Turns…

Alaska – Glacier Cruise

Alaska – Glacier Cruise

A few days ago I told you about the tiny town of Whittier, Alaska.  We went there to take a glacier cruise, and I’m SO excited to tell you all about it! We took the 26 Glacier Cruise with Phillips Cruises & Tours.  It.  Was.  Amazing.  Truly!  This was a splurge, and it was worth every penny.  We spent 5 hours exploring the beautiful Prince William Sound. Glaciers!  We saw LOTS of glaciers,  and the captain got us within 1000…

Alaska – Whittier

Alaska – Whittier

This is Whittier, Alaska which sits on the shore of Prince William Sound in the Chugach National Forest!  About 200 people live here, and 90% of the 200 live in the tall apartment building you see in the middle of town!  (Just think about that for a minute!) This lovely piece of paradise gets 15 FEET of rain and 20 FEET of snow each year!  FEET, y’all!

Alaska – The Pipeline

Alaska – The Pipeline

You have have heard me talk about my upcoming trip to Alaska for months now, and I’m finally HERE!!!  Hooray!  I worked trade shows (homeschool conventions) in Soldotna and Anchorage last week and have one more to do in Fairbanks this week.  Work comes first, obviously, but we’ve had little bits of time here and there for adventures! We were driving to dinner yesterday when I pointed out the window and asked my colleague, “Is that the Alaska pipeline over…

Today I’m linking up with Anne and Nancy for this month’s Currently!  This month we’re sharing what we’re currently baking, listening to, loving, planting, and remembering. I am currently… Baking:  shortbread!  I got a GREAT deal on some mini cookie cutters at World Market just before Easter, and I knew I just HAD to make shortbread to take to our family Easter gathering!  They turned out so stinking cute!

Currently – April 2017

I am currently… Accomplishing:  unpacking some boxes.  We’ve been in our house two and half years!  Oy!  Some of boxes are full of decorating-type things that I didn’t use when we first moved in.  Now I have the itch to change things up, so it’s a good time to sort through those items.  Other boxes are full of stuff we dragged from house to house during our Air Force career.  I need to just.  get.  rid.  of.  them. Feeling:  excited! …

Springerize Your Wardrobe

Spring is officially here, and I’m pretty excited about it!  Autumn fashion rocks my world.  It rocks my world for MONTHS since I live in Coastal Georgia.  (No winter here!) Now it’s time to change things up.  We’ll have highs in the 80s all week, so it’s DEFINITELY time to change things up in a springtime direction! My spring wardrobe could benefit from just a little updating.  Know what I mean?  I finally got a good handle on my wardrobe…
