Hi everyone! So here’s a post that I’ve been DYING to write, but wanted to hold off until the right time. The truth is, from the second I stepped off my plane from Seattle I’ve felt…different than I expected to feel in Anchorage. And I wanted to wait until I’d lived in Anchorage for a … More Home Is Where You Drop Your Anchor

Well it turns out that North Dakota (as well as … More Alaska Road Trip Day 3: Minot, ND to Whitecourt, AB!
