Slip Sliding Away

27 01 2011

This is my fourth winter in St. Louis (pause to freak out).  Thus far it’s been the only real winter we’ve had (aka cold temps for more than 2 days in a row, and snow that sticks for longer than 12 hours)!  It’s been super exciting to be here for the snow and even more exciting to be here for…

Wait for it!


For those from the great state of AK, Art hill is to St. Louis what the University hill is to Fairbanks… an awesome sledding hill that everyone flocks to.

Now that I’m working full time, the boy and I had to wait until after dark, but the parks dept makes bonfires at the top of the hills to keep sledders warm…. Totally awesome.

Here is a view from the top of the hill at night!


And of course we wrapped up a good night of sledding with some hot chocolate.

Hope you are all getting to enjoy your winters, wherever they may be!


It’s been a long time

Hello faithful readers,

It’s been a long time, the end of the semester was brutal, but is finally over.  What’s happened since my last post?

I finished school, you may now address me as Master when you see me 🙂

I went to Georgia to hang out with the fam, awesome times!

I got a new job, I’m now a full time project manager, with an office and everything!

I visited Taubs in Milwaukee, where we did a lot of eating, shopping and relaxing!

I went sledding… more on that later.

I signed up for a half marathon (I blame it on the mom)!

I joined a small group at church.

I got some sleep.

Hopefully I’ll be back again soon so you can keep tabs on this Alaskan’s adventures around Tha Lou.
