But wait… first things first! We need a family cruise graphic to go on our matching cruise sweatshirts!

Travel is good for the soul. Through travel we learn things about new places, people, cultures and ourselves. This past August I had a great adventure that took me to the Land of the Midnight Sun: Alaska.


My adventure began with my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. In celebration, it was their wish that the whole family set a course for adventure on board the Princess Ruby cruise ship - destination Alaska! I have never considered myself a cruiser and would never have chosen a cruise as option number one when making travel plans. Visions of being stuck on a boat for long stretches of time, sea sickness, or worse Norovirus, danced in my head (remember the poop cruises that were in the news a few years ago?) . My worst fears never came to fruition, however, and cruising turned out to be much more enjoyable than I could have imagined. It is really a great way to see Alaska for the first time and there is no better way to see Glacier Bay, which was was a moving experience in itself.

Alaska is spectacular! The scenery is breathtaking and it is full of beautiful art, culture, people and food. It was a truly memorable and super fun adventure! I found inspiration everywhere and I will share more of what inspired me in a future post!
