I don't really have anything to report but that we are heading back into the deep freeze unfortunately! But I thought while I didn't have anything to report I would keep up with blogging and post some pictures I found from the Anchorage Daily News, pictures from around Anchorage in December thus far! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

I hope you all enjoy, I included the captions!! As well, while we are on the topic of pictures I also wanted to share this with you.
Gary Jones is a good friend of ours, he works with Jason and has for years.. in the time that we've known him he has taken up photography and although his photographs from all over are absolutely amazing, his pictures from here blow me away as he post them daily on facebook. Gary has sold his pictures on Etsy for quite some time now and having such great luck he decided to open his own website where you can purchase pictures.
Jason and I bought a beautiful picture of his from NYC of the skyline with the tribute to the twin towers, its amazing. Gary guarantees quality and if you are not happy with the photograph when you receive it he will not charge you, he always wants his customers to be happy! His prices are more than reasonable, the pictures of amazing! Please take a look!
