I’m in love with Alaska. I love the remoteness. I love the winter. I love the spring and the drastic shifting of the seasons. I love the long winter nights and the endless summer days. We already have over 16 hours of daylight and soon there will be no night at all, up here above the arctic circle.  I love these people I live with and work with. This place is so much more than just where I live.  Although today (April 19th) will be my first birthday away from where  I come from, I have yet to spend a birthday away from home. 

Smelling like campfire is one of the best things ever.

I take great delight in telling customers that no, we don’t have WiFi here. 

I got to go dog mushing today, it was super fun!! I’m really glad I got to go, it would’ve been super lame of me to spend an entire winter in the arctic where we have sled dogs and not make it out once. It was such a beautiful day!!

I went on a fantastic walk today in the afternoon sun. I still can’t believe I live here somedays. 

Just went on a long walk in the woods at night without a flashlight. I’m feeling intrepid as fuck.
