Alaska, Hawai'i

throwback to tanner days and adventures

27 April 2015

I’ve been blessed all winter to not notice how white my skin is. But today, for the first time in a long time, I wore my favorite Hawaii sandals, then took them off and walked around barefoot in the soggy grass. I noticed how very white my feet and legs were (and hairy too – legs, not feet, I’m not a hobbit). It was so nice being barefoot. And the weather was splendid today and I was able to get a teesy bit of sun exposure.

Anyways, I think I will always miss Hawaii like and the beloved Oahu. My last semester there was one of the greatest times of life. Though each semester there though was so super duper fantastic and I will be forever grateful. Here’s s a couple Hawaii pictures in case you’re missing it too. IMG_4126 IMG_5429

*disclaimer: I wrote this post as I was falling in and out of sleep. I was going to rewrite it, but I think I like it in its semi sleepy form.

Chris is gone for two weeks. So here’s our last 2 months of selfies!. I’m usually the one that wants to take a selfie. I just like the (sometimes mediocre) picture so I can create and preserve memories.

Also, I’m in bed with intentions of reading and writing, and I keep falling asleep. That’s why this post has a funny title, because I fell asleepy. :)

These selfies start when Chris flew to Duluth, MN to meet with cirrus aircraft. Lots and lots has happened since then! I’m feel really blessed. And we are happy campers.

Also, Bel gave birth to a precious little girl kitten! More on that later. It’s been my focal point the past week. :)

Spring + Winter = Sprinter


The weather has been kind of kook lately. I wonder why we always talk about the weather. Like when I talk with my grandparents, the weather always comes up in conversation. Or when I casually talk with people at the grocery store, we start talking about the elements outside. I wonder why we humanoids do that.

Anyway, after anxiously awaiting snow month after month and day after day, I finally gave up on winter coming and was preparing myself for summer. It was sunny. The ground was kinda soggy and muddy. And then it snowed. And everything was lovely and white. And then it rained. And then it snowed. And rained.  And hailed. And snowed. And rained. And moisture continued to fall from the sky in all its forms. And here we are now, experiencing sprinter.

Husband and I drove down from Anchorage last nights and the elements were on fire, frozen fire. The driving conditions were very far from ideal, but we made it home and safely into our bed. I love bedtime, what a great invention.

Today is Saturday. Remember the days of excitedly waking up early to watch Saturday morning cartoons? I had that excitement this morning, just to be home and play and do whatever. And then some bad and frustrating things happened, so I cried and talked with my honey and my dad and my mom and felt a bit better…

Bel still hasn’t birthed her kittens yet. Anxiously awaiting over here. Her little children and her belly still probably have some growing to do, so maybe they’ll be here in a week or so, but I’m hoping tomorrow is the day before Chris heads out of town for two weeks. We love our animals a lot. They are so good to us and make us laugh and smile (and sometimes get annoyed) everyday. :)

Chris has been working a ton, so much. I’ve been subbing quite a bit. Good things. And all that makes saturdays at home much more delightful. I’m hungry.
