alaska wildflowers (and we’re home)

Home.

No matter how fun the adventure…. I am always happy to be back here. In my own little space in the universe with my family all in one place. Feathered, furry, and winged members included.

Our trip was beautiful and exhausting. We saw TONS of family, played outside in the woods and on the beach, and bumped into so many good friends. The wedding was beautiful and I am so happy for my brother and his new family…. very good stuff indeed.

The kids & I met an incredible lot of fiber artists at the Net Loft's Fiber & Friends Retreat. I fell in love with weaving. Again. I've actually decided to sell my spinning wheel so I can buy a loom. We all had great fun felting too… more on the crafty bits later in the week.

Thank YOU for being such good company to my friends who popped in here to blog-sit. That was fun wasn't it? I hope you met some new faces among them. I was so happy to be free of the computer for two whole weeks…. it's been hard to get back into it. The break has me thinking hard about balance and value of time. Lots of big decisions on my mind in regards to where I am spending it these days, there just never seems to be enough of it.

I'm going to slowly ease back into this space with a few days of photos from our adventures.

Today, a collection of Alaska wildflowers from our hiking trips.

Enjoy….

  1. Thank you 🙂 It’s such a magical place to visit for sure…… though I must admit after four years in the south I am happy to enjoy all this sunshine at home too!

  2. Aren’t the colors something? They almost look neon….. they’re salmonberries in case you didn’t know. They end up a beautiful salmon color…. huge berries that are mild and delicious!

  3. Alaska is such an astounding place. I spent an entire month driving the Alaskan Highway with my grandparents back in the early 90’s. That was before it was paved. It was an awesome experience.

  4. Oh my goodness! The kids & I did it back in 2003. We drove from Falmouth, MA to Valdez, AK. Just me & my mom, a dog, and three kids (6, 4, & infant). It was before cell phones. Totally crazy…… but good memories!

  8. Sounds like a great trip in a beautiful location. Is, this the same, did you see Gudrun Johnston there? I thought that I saw that she was in Alaska at a fiber retreat… I hope you did. She is so wonderful.
