Alaska, part I.

Hi guys- I made it to alaska last night. It's gorgeous here! The mountains are absolutely breathtaking. Right now I'm in a parking lot in downtown Anchorage where I just happened to come across free wireless that's connected to a hotel 2 blocks away. SCORE!! Check out my flickr! for some pictures. Blogger isn't letting me upload anything!! Ugh.

Japanese Star Festival

Today, July 7th, is the day of the Japanese Star Festival. Not that I ever really knew what this holiday was, but it's also another very special day. On July 7th 1993, my step-father Gene, adopted me, my brother Ben, and my sister Betsy. I don't think anyone even remembers that this was the day, but I've always remembered it because mom used to say "you know, it's the 7th day of the 7th month. You can't really forget it!" So I called mom on that day, and she had no clue. Maybe I just remember the little things in life :)
