Life in this Moment of Time

Realized it has been a while since I have posted.. perfect timing though really, reading back all about my amazing times last summer as a new summer approaches and new amazing adventures await! :)

My two year anniversary living in Juneau, Alaska just happened a few days ago, wow. I left behind family and friends for a place that drew me in and fits me like a glove.  I have had adventures and experiences I never would have even dreamed of. 

My four year anniversary of the first time I drove off of the ferry is coming up in a few days.  Alison and I were talking about this and how that marks 4 years of a beautiful friendship! I remember falling in love with this place instantly and knowing I would be back to stay for a stretch.

Big changes have consistantly happened every few months since being here.. jobs, living situations, friends, health, car problems.. of course the one constant has always been my Lord.  "He is my Rock, He is my Fortress, He is my Deliverer, in Him will I trust.. Praise the name of Jesus"

Life is a rollercoaster, we are along for the ride and there really is not much we can truly control.  However, we can make the most of what we are given.  My current and long lasting motto... Life is one Giant Dance Party!! Let loose, Enjoy!

Most Amazing Recent Adventure... Earthcruising to Herbert Glacier 12-3 in the morning with headlamps! (Except for Nick who had to rely on Chad's light for guidance..) shout out to my new friend Samantha, welcome to Juneau!

Also welcome back to my main hiking buddy Sara, I have missed you!

Sad goodbye to Cole and Lisa... my craft teacher/buddy, faithful trilogy watchers, amazing chefs, and good friends they have become like family! Good luck with life back in "The Good Life" of Nebraska :)

Also to Connie who is embarking onto bigger and better challenges down in "The Land of 10,000 Lakes" MinnesOta! I will miss you greatly
