So grateful that I get to live and work in such a beautiful place. It's tough sometimes. I come home cold and soaked. Covered in thorns and exhausted. Today was like that. But I took a moment to appreciate the landscape and fresh air, and it's all worth it.
Alaska appreciation post. For the first time in a while I’m living in a place I want to live in! I’m here, not for anybody else, but for myself. No relationship or person brought me here, kept me here or brought me back. Alaska has been a million things but only one word truly sums it up and that’s “home”. My heart and mind are, genuinely, the happiest they’ve ever been and that happiness is not dependent on anybody but myself. Alaska brought more than a job, friends and frisbee into my life; it brought freedom. Thank you, Alaska, for every blessing you continue to provide to me. You never cease to amaze me. 💛✨🐻🌲🐾🦀
Happy Winter Solstice! This day had little significance to me before moving to Alaska but now it may be the MOST important day of the year. The saying “don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you got ‘till it’s gone” is so true. Appreciate love. Appreciate good times. Appreciate new adventures. Appreciate friends and family. Appreciate non-artificial vitamin D. Appreciate sunlight. ☀️❄️
I take a 5-minute break from my work everyday at this time to step away from my desk, breathe deeply, release tension and watch the sunset. This is happening right now. I know it’s cliche but #blessed
There’s something so special about snow around the holidays. Growing up on the east coast, I have fond memories of trees coated with fluffy snow, the quiet streets, and of course snow days. Now that I’m in Southern California, the holidays feel so very different. Still getting used to Christmas lights on palm trees! The sunsets though... how I love them!
