There are some really exciting things about this move.
Dave has taken a new position and he is thrilled. It is fun to see my husband so happy and a little nervous about the new responsibility. He loves a challange, and this will be one.
We will be closer to my inlaws. Dave’s folks will only be 750 miles away, rather than 4000. We love Dave’s folks, and haven’t seen them enough the last 6 years.
We have wonderful, faithful friends in Alaska. It will be great to reconnect and get caught up. Several of these friends have kids I have only seen pictures of, it will be so much fun to meet these little ones.
There will be new friends to meet. New neighbors to suck into the vortex which any house we live in seems to become.
The mountains and the ocean. The LONG LONG LONG summer days. The LONG LONG LONG winter nights. These are things I am looking forward to, that I enjoyed before, and I know I will love again.
Humpy’s, and Gwennie’s Old Alaska restaurants, rest assured, when you come to visit us, we will take you to one or both of these.
So, start planning those trips. Whether you would be visiting from the MatSu Valley, Minnesota, Madison, or Mexico(that’s a hint for you Michelle!)
