last year, i celebrated thanksgiving in one of the best ways possible. i’d be lying, though, if i said the thanksgiving i celebrated with my sister in alaska wasn’t pretty special itself. spending holidays without your family can be rough, but at least 1/5 of my family (my sister) was waiting for me when my plane touched down in the last frontier.
speaking of which, the journey there was by no means simple. riding in the tiny plane from anchorage to homer, for example, was especially memorable (since the plane was the size of a sailboat and we were seated in rows according to our weight….) but hey, i’m the girl who loves turbulence so the bumpier flight, the better, i say.
fun fact: you could see the northern lights from my sister’s bedroom window!
