Too Much Fun, Too Little Time

I don’t ever get tired of the sunsets during the winter.

It’s been beautiful and warm here in Fairbanks lately. We’ve had both fresh snow and melting snow, evidence of cloven hooves visitors (moose), and icy roads that have canceled school and closed businesses (a rare occurrence here in Fairbanks, I assure you). 

We didn’t see these moose, but it must have been a mama and baby judging by the size of the prints.

The roads around our house were pure ice for a day or two this past week.

So finding time to blog should have been easy right? Well, not so much. 

The kid, who is quickly approaching his first birthday, decided that ear infections are all the rage, as well as never, ever sleeping through the night. It’s been great fun, both literally and sarcastically. The son enjoys playtime in the snow and all new experiences, but sleepless nights and fussy days are challenging. 

The son has decided that crawling arpund in and eating snow is great fun. I just have to keep him away from the parts the dog has visited!

Still, we’ve been having great fun in the warmer and longer days!


Lately, I’ve had a fascination with the sky, especially at sunrise and sunset. So I have snapped literally hundreds of photos of said sky. Then when it comes time to choose the best, I find I love them all so much that I can’t make a decision. So here’s a gallery of them all. Because each one is awesome in its own way.

Denali Keeping watch over Fairbanks

Clouds over Denali...

Clouds over Denali…


The sun goes down…

We have had some absolutely stunning sunsets recently in Fairbanks. The skies have been draped with clouds, which are then painted with oranges, pinks, purples, even greens. I have to refrain myself from taking hundreds of shots, as the light changes every few seconds and creates a completely different picture within minutes. It truly has been stunning.


And it paints the sky…
