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!

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!

Springtime Fun List!

Springtime Fun List!

It’s time for some springtime fun, y’all!  I’m linking up with some lovely ladies to share our bucket lists for spring. I’m calling mine a Springtime Fun List!  Yay!

Spring sprung around here (Coastal Georgia) weeks ago, so I *might* have taken just a teensy-weensy head start!  Behold my list of spring wonderfulness goals!

  • Go to the beach at least twice.
  • Try two new restaurants in downtown Savannah.
  • Go to Savannah’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
  • Take a trip to Alaska.
  • Buy a new Easter dress.
  • Get a new, official (professional) picture of Gene and me.
  • Focus on Easter by observing Lent.
  • Make and put up some springtime decorations in the house.
  • Go kayaking in a new location.
  • Write at least one REAL letter or note to a friend each week.

I bet you can’t tell which ones I *might* have done/started early!  I’ll post updates as I work through the list, so pop back in often to follow along.

(You’ll find updates about how I did on my list here and here.  And check out my summertime fun list here!)

I’m eager to see what the other ladies are planning to do.  Here are their links so we can ALL get some good ideas for things to do this season.

Leslie at Once Upon a Time and Happily Ever After.

Dani at Family.Love.Inspiration.

Tamara at My Retirement Project.

Whitney at Whitney à la Mode.

Ashley at Perks of Ponder.

Sheila at Making the Most of Every Day.

Do YOU have a springtime fun list?  Or if not an official list, what are some things you’d like to do over the next few weeks?  Please share them with me in the comment section below!  I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Travel Tip – Love Notes

Travel Tip – Love Notes

IMG_7244

I’m in Denver for a training conference this week, and my sweet husband hid some notes for me in my suitcase! My mom always did that when I went to summer camp, and I ❤️ that Gene is continuing the tradition!

Whenever your spouse travels, try tucking some notes for them into their suitcase before they leave!  It’ll be meaningful for BOTH of you!
