in Alaska.


On an amazing, amazing trip that I am still processing as my body

For us, Alaska was filled with

splendid hiking


fresh, wild berries


and tons of wildlife

among many, many other things!

I am so glad that you got to make that trip! It is amazing.

And I completely understand your trouble readjusting to the climate. Our honeymoon to Banff, Canada was in July and when we left Calgary the temp was 66 degrees. When we changed planes in Dallas and then when we landed in Tulsa the temp was well over 100. We almost felt like we were gasping for breath because it was so hot.

Well, I wondered if your friend, Betty's kitchen was the friend Betty's kitchen that I thought, but I had no idea you were in Alaska! So jealous and happy for you to spend time with them and to get to explore! Did you know my sister lives in Juneau?

Don't you wish we had a just a little bit of Alaska in Texas. I'm so glad you got to experience that amazing place.

That's great that you were able to go on vacation to Alaska! I hope you'll be sharing more pictures and more stories of your time there! Where all did you go in Alaska? And did you go to any churches while you were there? If it was a church in one of many small towns, chances are I know people there. :)

I love the berries. My friends and I used to go berry picking every fall. We'd get a gallon of low bush cranberries each year and freeze them. Then we had them for making cranberry oatmeal cookies, cranberry tea, cranberry muffins, etc. throughout the year. Yummy.
