ITS ALL OVER TODAY

Our last day working in Alaska is about to come to an end. I can't decide if it is a good or a bad thing. We have loved our jobs up here and have loved being in Alaska. Alaska is such a beautfiul place. It is has an indescribable beauty.

I am sitting here at Hotel Alyeska in Girdwood babysitting luggage while our guests are out enjoying Girdwood. They don't leave for the cruise ship until 1:45 pm so we have a room where they can leave a bag or two. Brad is outside in the pouring rain loading a million and a half bags, the other luggage suitcases they couldn't carry with them. There are three tour groups that stayed here last night, probably 200 people or so. You can probably imagine all the bags they bring with them. It's a lot. We load their bags into a luggage truck that takes them down to the ship. As I sit here, I am getting emotional, a part of me doesn't want to leave.

We have had some amazing memeories created here in Alaska. I am so thankful for a Heavenly Father who answers prayers, leads and guides us. If it was not for those answered prayers and the choice to move from Hawaii to Alaska, I would have not found Brad. I am so thankful to have him in my life. He is such an amazing man! I love you honey.

We will start our journey home after we get back to Anchorage this afternoon. We will make it to Tok, AK tonight and tomorrow our journey home will begin. Can't wait to get home and see everyone!!!

Wow! You guys have had quite the adventure, and what fun to be able to experience it! It is sad to see it come to a close, but at least you've had that chapter in your life, and now you get to start a new chapter, closer to home! :) Good luck with traveling!
