Hello! I am like you, Alaskan at heart but not body. My great-grandparents immigrated to Moose Pass, Alaska in 1905 and homesteaded, grandparents married in Alaska, I was raised in Alaska and between military moves, raised my kids in Alaska. So, it is in my blood but I adore Arizona for what it has to offer also. The world is a wonderful place to explore and each place has its beauty.
I read some of your blog today and enjoyed learning about your ferrets. My favorite posts were about it being different down south. I was laughing out loud! Just so you know, it's even different from state to state down south. Back home in Alabama is nothing like here in South Carolina.
Thanks for the friend add. And Way to Go with re-igniting that Spark! It's never too late to make a fresh start here. One day I would love to read a blog post about your life in Alaska. I've always wanted to visit there.
