Our Alaska

     Today I thought I would share about our cabin in Alaska. It is about 40 minutes from Ninilchik, AK which is on the Kenai Peninsula south of Anchorage. We are about 1 hour and 15 minutes from Homer. The cabin was pretty much just a shell and Jess (my fiance) has worked hard to make it more livable. We have running water, a wood stove for heat, even hot water.But an outhouse is necessary for a bit longer. No internet, TV, and hardly any cell service. It is very peaceful, and beautiful like nothing I have ever experienced.We crave it and are unable to be there as much as we would like to.Everyone should see Alaska at least once in their lifetime. I am blessed to have this place to visit as often as we want to.

     We have some amazing friends that have cabins up there too. Just wonderful, down to earth, no smoke and mirrors friends. It's hard to find good people like these. We pretty much hop around from cabin to cabin every night laughing, dancing, fire pit talking, eating and drinking too much. 

Here are some photos I took back in July 2012-

I call these puffs. They are every where. I have not seen them
anywhere but in Alaska. 

Our friends Renee and Scott. Great people to have in our lives. 

This is Renee and Scott's fire pit and their sauna in the background. 

The firepit over at our friends Brian and Cindy's. Always a fun time
drinking too much and laughing even more. This was at 10 pm!

Begin Again


These are some items I listed in my Etsy Shop today. I missed the creative process I have when I am selling. I feel really good about the images I took and I think that my listing prices are fair. I would love it if you would take a look and give me some feedback. Here is the link......

The last few years have brought some major changes to my life and those changes have brought me to one of the happiest places I have ever been. The beginning of change is always the most difficult time but I have found that on the other side of it is a better more fulfilling life. I have learned how to be happy within and to not let the circumstances around me dictate my happiness. If something is bothering me or stressing me out I know I need a plan to change it. I am not saying that I am happy all the time. That is just not possible or realistic. But what I am saying is that I AM happy most of the time now. And that is due to changes I have made or even changes that have happened that were out of my control. 

I am excited to be back to my Etsy Shop and to be blogging again.  I hope to bring inspiration, beauty, laughter and love into the lives of others while I am here. I would love it if you would join me.
