At Home in Alaska


Thought I'd share some pictures of my family's house in Alaska. They built the house 28 years ago and, as you can see, it's made of logs. The inside is warm and comforting and filled with artwork and textiles from their travels abroad: afghanistan, mexico and asia.

It was perfect for my second trip up to Alaska, due mainly to the fact that E and I are breaking up after 5 years together. I went up to be taken care of, to be outside and to be comforted. It was a lively house with all 3 of of my cousins, aunt and uncle, 2 dogs and 3 cats. I'm glad I took the time to indulge in trip #2.

ugh, breakups are so hard (I went through leaving a 5 year relationship two years ago.)

glad you're traveling and spending time with family. Let me know if you make it up to the Bay!

I too am sorry for your breakup. I am trying to recover from the end of a 10 year relationship - so, I understand your heartache. Trips (likes yours to AK) have been essential to my sanity. Spend time with friends. And keep doing things that make you happy - like blogging.

The house seems perfect for doing/seeking exactly what you wanted. Also, I'm very sorry to learn of your breakup. I do hope you'll find peace... and, eventually, a love that far surpasses your dreams!

I'm sorry to hear about your breakup. There's something about travel that helps the heart heal, I find. When my heart broke I booked myself a solo 10 day trip to Paris, and when I came back, I was ready to face the world again. I hope you find the same :)

PS: your parent's house is beautiful.
