Jupiter & Venus

On our second night of Aurora hunting (with no such luck), we did get a pretty awesome view of Jupiter and Venus!

Not a very exciting photo, but it always amazes me that you can actually SEE other planets - Living in Alaska may force me to purchase a telescope and investigate astronomy as a new hobby...

Aurora Borealis

I finally saw the Northern Lights last night, and they were even more amazing that I had imagined!

They were so strong we first saw them from our backyard when we were letting Willow outside before bed.

Karl was nice enough to hop in the car with me and head outside of Anchorage where it was a bit darker.

To finish out the evening, a mama moose and her baby walked within feet of our car before we headed back home!

Sun on the Mountains

This view just never gets old...

As seen from the Glenn Highway, at the amazing hour of 5:30pm - finally!

Big Dipper

Can you see it?!?

I wish it wasn't such a blurry photo, but when you're trying to take pictures of stars (with your shutter open for 25 seconds) and you've left your tripod at home, you have make do.  In my case, this was wedging the camera between the dashboard and windshield of my car.  Ideal? No.  Sufficient? Yes.

Something in the air?

Maybe it's because each day is getting a bit warmer and a bit brighter, but my motivation was sparked this week and I FINALLY updated my Etsy shop.  This was wayyy overdue - I have all of these soaps and lip balms nicely arranged on shelves, but it's obviously not being sold to anyone if I don't get it listed....  In any case, I'm also running a sale on bar soaps for the next week: Buy three, get one free!  Head over and check it out, if you're interested.  

Sarah's Soak Shoppe also has a Facebook page, which you can check out here.

I'm Famous!

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to be included as a guest on Kids These Days, a public radio show here in Alaska.  The topic was adoption, and since that's what I do, I had a lot to offer!

It's an hour long show, but I hope you check it out!
