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 […]

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 […]

May is my favorite month, I think. If I had to pick it would be May! The change of seasons, the start of camping, the trees and gardening, the friends, the bonfires! Just everything. And this May did not disappoint! Friends. We got to spend lots of times with friends. Walks in the park. Time at their […]
