Photo Finish Friday

One last photo of our plane ride over Denali. The turquoise pools of water on the glaciers were fascinating.
This is why they are so blue.
What cool quilts!


Whoa, what a cool house. 

For back to school. The leather strap!

Creepy or cool??


This week has been nuts. I feel like I have hit the ground running upon our return from Alaska. My kids started school yesterday and I did 2 Green Bag Lady events giving away 300 bags. And, I have my cousin and his wife here visiting, and, hosting dinner tonight. Big Girl comes in at the airport tomorrow night after moving in at the University of Minnesota. Wow. I need some down time! Maybe I'll get some on Sunday. Maybe… Teresa

Alaska Part 3

Our last day in Alaska we were lucky and it was clear enough for us to take a small charter plane to see the peaks of Denali. I can't tell you how gorgeous it was to see this magnificent land from the air. By far the highlight of the trip! We even got to land on a glacier at the top. Words can't describe what an amazing experience this was. Absolutely beautiful.

I want to go back! Teresa

Alaska Part 2

We picked up Big Girl at the Girl Scout camp she was working at for the summer in Wasilla after we left Seward. Then, all 5 of us stayed in Talkeetna for 3 nights at a great Airbnb. Such fun family time. We drove from there to Denali National Park and did a bus tour. It was kind of a grey day but pretty nonetheless!

These are fireweed and they are EVERYWHERE in Alaska and make the landscape even more breathtaking!
 We saw an enormous caribou…

 And got some great family photos…

Your beauty is so amazing Alaska! Teresa

All felt!!!

Oh my, yes!

Little Girl and I are currently watching this. Her for the first time, me for the second. It is laugh out loud hilarious. Highly recommend.

What are you up to? I'm still catching up from being gone for nearly a month. Yes, I had 6 days off between CA and AK but not nearly enough hours in those 6 days! My kids start school on Thursday. What? I have 2 huge bag events on Thursday too. Whew! Send me good vibes! Teresa

Alaska Part 1

My family and I spent last week in gorgeous Alaska. Big Girl is a camp counselor up there for the summer and we were able to spend 4 of the 6 days with her. We landed in Anchorage and immediately drove to Seward. We explored the town a bit, amazing views!

Our second day in Seward we took a boat trip through Kenai Fjords National Park. Everything I pointed my camera at was so beautiful. I took WAY too many photos. Here are a handful…

 Sea lions!


We got to see a whale, sea lions, sea otters and glaciers. All of it amazing. If you haven't been to Alaska I highly recommend a vacation! Teresa
