Hope everyone has had a chance to check out my newly redesigned blog! It's definitely still a work in progress, and my apologies to anyone who has tried to navigate while I'm making a mess of things.
I never imagined myself as someone who would blog. It's also safe to say that I never imagined myself as someone that would move to Alaska, either. I decided to start a blog when I realized I was moving away as I had became a faithful follower of my cousin Laura's blog. It is such an incredible way to share photos and stories, and I think I would cry if she stopped posting Sammy pictures all the time! I hope that my blog is able to do the same for my friends and family - I know you can't all come to visit, but I want to share what I see and what I do with everyone.
Even beyond my desire to share what is going on, I write this blog for myself now. It helps me to focus on the good things in life, and gives me a chance to reflect on my experiences. I love going back and reading my older posts! It's like a diary, but minus the teen angst and whining because I put a lot more thought into what I write.
But my real point here is that I know I have a lot of stalkers and lurkers out there. You know who you are - you don't 'follow' me and you aren't leaving me comments! To help remedy that, I think I will be doing a giveaway sometime in the near future. I definitely want it to be Alaska themed - what would you guys like? T-shirt? Bumper sticker? Mug? Socks? A Moose? Let me know how I you are most effectively bribed!
