Alaska trip

So I don't usually announce when I'm going to be out of town for an extended period of time but now that I'm back I wanted to tell you all about my anniversary gift! Well anniversary trip I guess is a better term. P took me on a cruise to Alaska! It's something I've wanted to do for a long time and it was amazing! It's like nothing else!

I have tons, like seriously tons of pictures and I've been holed up in a room trying to pare them down and edit them. Actually being the smart one I am, I edited almost all of them, then went back through paring them down. . . . lesson learned! I've gone from 771 pictures to 500 or so at this point!

But in the meantime I do have some glorious iPhone pics to share- 21 of them actually! That's the least I could show out of the 125 I took! Of course they aren't as good as the real deal but I'll get those finished and post some (or a lot!) up next week!

sailboats right up next to the boat when we were a few hours outside of Victoria- there ended up being 5 of them and its was amazing to see in the fog! 

That's all for now! HA I'll post a few of my favorites from the real camera next week! 
Happy Friday


  1. Oh, I am so jealous. Trev and I have wanted to do something similar for YEARS now. Can't wait to see more pictures!

    1. It is amazing!!! You should definitely do it!!!

  2. what fun! i hear it's a beautiful cruise to take. unfortunately i get terrible motion sickness so hubby and i didn't get a chance to do it when we lived in seattle. (but my sister is going this summer.)

    1. I totally understand! I am strangely not seasick at all but I get bus sick pretty much every time I get in a bus! Strange, right? I hadn't been to Seattle in a long time but we absolutely LOVED walking around Seattle! Such a fun city! I'm sure you are missing it now- especially with all this heat!

  3. Love the pictures!!! Can't believe you all have been married for 3 years!!!! Can't wait to see more pictures looks like it was so much fun.

    1. Thanks Mandy!!! I can't either! Time flies for sure! Can't believe your wedding is THIS weekend!!! So exciting! Enjoy every minute of it!
