Home


Its the longest I've ever been away from Alaska. Its been 1 whole year. I feel weird. I'm usually taking Dominic up there a few times a year but now Penny is getting older and I've had another child and its harder to travel cheaply so I've been sending other family members to take Dominic back and forth. I've always been able to go back for a short visit here and there until this year.......For the first time in my life........


I really miss home

This is my parents house. We moved here just before my Junior year of High School. It was our first HOME to call ours and sits on almost 6 acres of grassy land (used to be a sheep farm and thats why we call it the farm). Its a house with "character" and I love it. Wild Raspberries, blueberries and nagoonberries grow all over....as well as moose, rabbit and an occasional black bear (my dad killed one on our front porch, there's a hole in the porch to prove it).

Actually, yes. I think that one did me in. I hadn't realized until you mentioned MOTHER LOADS OF BLUEBERRIES how much I was missing being able to go back at any time.....and just how long it had been since I had been back....and 1 year really isn't that long!
