a view from my iphone

my husband and i went away for the weekend for some much needed relaxing "us" time.  it went by so fast, but we had such a great time.  our destination was our favorite place in alaska, our ski resort, alyeska.  we spend a lot of time here in the winter as a family, but it is such a beautiful place all year round .  it is only 2 1/2 hours from our home, but it feels like we are so far away from it all.

the drive is so beautiful and gives me a whole new appreciation for the last frontier.
this is the hotel (and my husband)
our view from dinner at our one of our fav spots "the bar"
we had such an amazing dinner (roasted tomato and mushroom ragout) and i was able to drink my fav beer (fish tale organic ipa)

we splurged for some blueberry cobbler
the leaves are falling off the trees so fast.  the colors are beautiful, and i thought they went so well with my blue mary jane sanitas =)
headed home
a look at alaska's fall.  it doesn't last long so we have to enjoy it while it is here.  winter is just around the corner.  we had a few snow flakes on the drive home.  
hope you had a relaxing weekend. 


  1. Ahh...looks like such a refreshing time. That dinner--yum, looks so good.

    Glad you two had the time to step away and enjoy each other.
