Well, I suppose this is the end. I've kept this blog for two years and chronicled our life and adventures living in Alaska. It was an incredible experience that I wouldn't trade for the world. To close out this blog I just wanted to show you some of my favorite parts of Alaska. Here it goes...
1.) The view from my front porch. There was nothing more peaceful that waking up, walking outside with a coffee, listening to the eagles, and watching the sunrise.
2.) The people. We met some truly incredible friends in Alaska and they ultimately turned in to family. These people helped us out whenever they could and kept us sane. We love them all so much!
3.) The outdoor recreation. I loved getting to go exploring whenever I wanted. Juneau had thousands of trail miles to explore and I tried to make the most of it every chance I got.
With every end, there is a new beginning though. Cody, Specks, and I are heading to our new home in Michigan tomorrow. I start teaching in two weeks (Michigan schools don't start until after Labor Day) and couldn't be more ecstatic. We will always have a little Alaska in our hearts. Hopefully we will make it back there one day to do more exploring and adventuring.
To close out, I would like to encourage you all to stay tuned for one last post. I will be starting a new blog that is less "location specific" and it will focus on minimalist living, teaching, vegetarian cooking, and general lifestyle topics. I have loved writing for all of you and I encourage you to go visit the new blog. I promise that I'll be back to post the link sometime this week :)
