september love.

September, gosh I love every month, but seriously September. I love it so much. Caribou, moose, harvesting, crispy air, yellow, and orange, and red, and everything lovely about fall in Alaska. We started off September with a wonderful moose hunt with Papa. Alas, we didn’t get a moose but we had fun trying. This was Sam’s […]

This summer has been one of the best ever. Starting with an epic spring and now ending with a wonderful August. I couldn’t be more excited for fall and ready for a bit cooler temperatures. August started with a trip to Arctic Valley where we hiked a ways into the hills finding beautiful fireweed on the […]

Oh please, Valdez. Oh squeeze, Valdez. With ease, Valdez! So many rhymes! And such lovely times (you see what I did there), we had on a short trip to Valdez. With Ben’s dad a.k.a. Poppi in town, we loaded up my parent’s camper (thanks so much Grammy and Papa) and hit the road on Monday […]

We just got back from a great trip into the woods with our dear friends, the Burtch’s, where we found blueberries, cranberries, mountains, and good times. Ben, Sam, Ruby, and I headed up north and made a little nest for ourselves in the woods. We went on lovely walks, Sammy leading the way. Ate yummy […]

We headed out of Anchorage on a delightful Tuesday ready to try new things. I was EXCITED! And just love getting out, camping, and exploring. We stopped in first at a spot Heidi told us about on the Susitna River. It was delightful. Sam loved playing in the water, throwing sticks and rocks, splashing, and […]

I couldn’t live where there were no trees; something vital in me would starve. Lucy Maud Montgomery It was a wonderful weekend to be out camping and we were blessed with another excellent Kenai Lake trip with our dear friends, the Turners and the Burtch’s. Ben and I geared up headed down. We were met […]

We loaded up our camper a few days ago and set off for our first camping trip of the year. We didn’t care that it snowed on the way down, we just wanted to get outside and maybe find some good weather (stupid april snow storm!) And we found a lovely place in Hope, where […]

Beautiful days.

Beautiful days.

The start of October also felt like the end of Summer. We said goodbye to my favorite season in style with a fantastic campout and bird hunt with our good friends, the Burtch’s and Turners. There were canoe trips, and fishing, and bird hunting, and campfires, and smores, and all things wonderful. The rest of […]
