Two Bloggers Meet

While on my Vacation I knew I was fairly close to a great gal I met in blog land. We talked and made arrangements to meet while I was in Portland. Her travel to meet me was about two and a half hours away from where I was staying, and I was very Blessed that she could make the trip. Since I live in Alaska it is very hard to ever meet some one you become close with, because I live so out of the loop of the lower 48.

This is Alexis from Running away I'll help you pack and I. She is such a great lady and fun to sit and drink coffee with. She has a great personality, and she shines with happiness. I felt like I have known her for years, and now when I read her blog I know just what a blessing she really is and how her daily life goes.
Thank you for making that drive Alexis and giving me the chance to meet you and your family. I hope that one day soon we will be able to meet up again. I truly feel Blessed by your friendship.

So Much To Blog About

I am finally home from my two week vacation. I had a wonderful time and it was hard to leave but glad to be home(if that makes sense). I have tons of stories to tell and pictures to share. I will try and get all my pictures on my computer and start with the joys of my 2 weeks in Portland as soon as I can get caught up with my home life. So stay tuned for some great times.

Friday Flashback Photo

Alicia from More than words host the Friday Flash Back Photo's. It's always fun to look back to pre-digital days. So scan your favorite photo to share and head over to Alica's blog and add yourself to her Mr. Linky to check out other fun photo's.
This is my Daughter Lora, she was a great soccer player, every thing she did was live and breathe that ball! She played ball for almost 9 years.

This is my Daughter Rachel, she also was a great player, and loved the sport! Rachel and Lora were on the same team and she also played for almost 9 years.

This is my daughter Vera, she tried playing soccer for a year and it just was not her cup of tea, very uncoordinated and wimpy. At least she tried and made a good go of it.
