Can It Really Be?

 Have you ever wanted to do something your whole life? When I was around 12 years old one New England summer evening we saw in the sky a glimpse of the Northern Lights. That along with reading books such as "Kavik, the Wolf Dog" put a desire in me to someday visit Alaska. I even dreamed of racing on a dog sled in the Iditarod race! While I no longer want to race miles across the snow with only dogs (although a short ways sounds like great fun) I still would love to visit Alaska and maybe see the Northern Lights. We had planned an Alaskan cruise for our 20th anniversary, which was last year, but alas having a newborn baby changed those plans! We have been talking about it for so long that it almost feels like it's just part of me that will always be there. BUT guess what? Last week we booked a cruise for July to Alaska! I am so excited, but it still seems like such a faraway dream, at times I still can't believe we finally made reservations! .... We probably won't see the Northern Lights as it isn't the best time of year, but hey I will finally get to see some of Alaska which I have been wanting to do for 25 years!!
So Pretty


Who wouldn't want to take a cruise here?

Is there somewhere you have always dreamed of going?

  It has been a LONG time since I posted anything, but maybe now I will post a bit more! Our house that we started working on last April is coming along, but it takes a lot of work when you do most of it yourself. Currently the sheetrock is hung and ready to tape. Looks so much more like a house, I'm getting excited, but also a little more impatient. Seeing my house being built literally three feet from the house I'm living in makes one long to just move in! It probably doesn't help when the house we live in, which was built during the depression, seems to be slowly falling apart and our fridge just stopped working so we ordered a new one. Guess that will be one less thing to get for the new house! Now for some pictures. .

Cleaning up

Can't have a post without a picture of the baby! 

My garage doors are finally here and installed!
