Bolts of gray velvet at my favorite antique mall. I love walking by this stall’s stacks of different fabrics and taking in all the colors and patterns.
I didn’t notice this taxidermized squirrel tucked behind the woodwork of the pub style bar in a cabin rented with my husband and sister until the second day of our stay. I had a real moment of panic that we had a live squirrel stuck in the basement pool room before I realized it was fortunately not alive.
Sunrise in Seven Devils, NC. At times, it drives me crazy that our beagle Daisy wakes me up so early, but sights like this make up for it.
Taken from a cruise ship in Seward, Alaska. The water gets its bright blue hue from glacial silt runoff from Resurrection River. The Bay and River both get their names from Alexander Baranov, who retreated to the bay during a storm that ended on Easter Sunday.
8 years later, and I’ve finally befriended the neighbors black cat.
A patch of shamrocks in my front yard. They sprout up each year just before the start of spring.
It may look like I captured a foggy morning on my neighborhood trail, but it’s actually a sediment floating in the water.
I’m definitely looking forward to the weather slowly getting warmer and allowing new growth to spring up.
Did you know the Alaska Equal Rights Act of 1945, the first anti-discrimination law in the United States, was signed into law today? You do now! The law made it illegal to discriminate based on race, and came into being after Alaskan natives fought against segregation, which often forced them to abandon their culture. It was signed February 16th, 1945 and dismantled Jim Crow laws in Alaska.
