Welcome to October, everyone!
This month, I'll be joining The Nester and the gang for another round of posting every day on a topic for 31 Days straight. Click the 31 Days link to see what I'm talking about, and then enjoy perusing all the different month-long series which are linked up for all to see.
Last October, I was in way over my head, deciding the day before that I was going to write a 31 Days series with no prior planning or thought. Wow. Just wow. It was hard. I wanted to quit and vowed there was no way I was putting myself through that kind of misery again.
But, alas, here I am.
I've had a change of heart. I've decided to write a simple series on my beloved Alaska.
Welcome to hello, Alaska.
If you're new here, let me take a minute to introduce myself.
I'm Amanda. I'm a wife and mom of eight children. I've lived in Alaska for twenty-eight years, moving here when I was a little girl when my family was relocated here by my Dad's company. Scary stuff for a kid who thought she'd be living in an igloo, taking a pet penguin for walks.
But it has turned out alright. So alright.
In addition to being a wife and a mom, I'm a writer. Hence the blog. But I'm also steeped in ministry that I'm crazy about to women right here in this space, and also over at The Masterpiece Mom, where I'm the co-creator of the blog and podcast bringing hope and encouragement to moms everywhere.
Thanks for stopping by, I think this will be great fun.
Each day you can come expecting to take in a snippet of what life's like living in the 49th state. I can't promise I'll cover the whole of Alaskan life, but I can share life from my perspective.We'll discuss things like moose in backyards munching on branches, black ice, footwear, food, fashion, and termination dust. And we can't forget the mountains and rivers and crazy quirks too. I promise there are so many unique things about living in Alaska.
So tell me, have you ever been curious about Alaska?
