Anthony and I met in Alaska and with his fast approaching retirement we both felt it was fitting to give into our longing to return to the state that holds our hearts. This trip was both for pleasure and for business. We enjoyed our old stomping grounds, spent hours reconnecting with friends, and enjoyed many new beautiful trails and attractions.
When we landed in Fairbanks its was 20 degrees with a fresh dusting of 4inches of snow. BEAUTIFUL!
We basked in the balmy weather, enjoyed acclimating to driving on ice and snow again and set off to enjoy some time alone. No kids. No farm. Just quiet solitude, rushing waters, and sweeping mountains. We were completely engulfed by raw nature and a sense of freedom. Freedom to dream without limits. Freedom that wells up from the very depths of the soul and sends chills of excitement to every fiber of your being. This…this is what we have been longing for.
