Maybe it's just me.... but Alaska is stinkin' beautiful! Me and my parent and two of my nephews went down to Denali and went camping and hiking. It was awesome. We saw plenty of wildlife and it was clear enough to see the mountain. It was a perfect end to my trip home.

The last frontier

I'm home!! I was super lucky to be able to come home for a few weeks before my new job starts. Apparently it's been one of the coldest and wettest summers ever, but I've been lucky to have nice days, though it definitely feels like fall. I've spent a lot of time with my sister and my nephews, including the new twins. They are so adorable and I can usually tell them apart now. Other highlights have been going to the fair and the farmers market. I've also finally gotten around to dealing with pictures from my drive across the country. So, here you go.

Good bye philly......... sad......

Hello truckstops...............

and Danish windmills in the middle of Iowa.

I really do think the sky in Wyoming is prettier....

And the most redneck gas station ever

And finally.............. the west.... phew.

Celebrity Crush

So, in my free time while being crafty (you should see the fab feather earring I made) I've been watching some classic movies I've always meant to see. Yesterday I watched A Streetcar Named Deisre. And omg. I love Marlon Brando. He's so mean and dirty and broken and passionate and stupid and arrogant and destructive and totally totally hot.
