The kids and I are flying out tonight on a red eye to Portland, OR. We're going to spend 3 weeks with the extended family. Dave gets to join us later this week.
I've grown very attached to interior Alaska, so while I'm looking forward to visiting the family, I'm going to miss our dear home and friends here. We'll also miss the Summer Solstice where the sun lasts nearly 24 hours.
However, we are going to get away from the mosquitoes and have some dark nights again. And see our friends and family. And I get to shop! You all know how I adore Target, Ikea and the vintage stores in the Northwest. I can't wait!!
See you on the other side!
