misty fjord

fjord: a long, narrow inlet of the Sea between high cliffs

As a girl who loves her nature, is always looking for a mountain to climb, a new place of harmony to traverse...I have always wanted to venture to a fjord. Mountains that are literally popping up right out of the sea, no one could dream up a place as glorious as this, yet it exists.

Yea, I had never heard of it either
But it's most known for being Alaska's first city

This place may have boomed with the establishment of the salmon industry, but I still see it as a sleepy little fishing town constantly surrounded by mist and fog and rain. 
Basically, I'm in love.

a train ride to nowhere

My absolute favorite adventure during our Alaskan Anniversary Adventure was our train ride to nowhere. We followed the White Pass & Yukon Route along the original track that was built back in 1898 during Alaska's Klondike Gold Rush.

4th anniversary weekend

With being apart right now in a long distance marriage, it makes marking the milestones extra important. And since we always love to celebrate with experiences, we ended up on an epic Alaskan Anniversary Adventure this year for our big gift to each other a month before our anniversary. But we wanted to acknowledge the actual day too.

weird places I've lost my wedding ring

Tom and I celebrated four years of marriage at the end of September and husband gave me another wedding band, which I love and will happily add to the stack. But I also think it's kind of funny that was the gift he chose considering how many times and how many places I've lost my engagement ring/wedding band.
 Well, not lost so much as got them stuck in the craziest weirdest places. Here's just a few.

september snippets

Happy Friday
I can't believe it's the last one in September. I actually have an an exam tomorrow (yep on a Saturday) so I'm calling it a wrap for the month. But before I do, needed to share all my favorites from this month.
