UT OH, Big move comming

For those of you that know me, you know that I've lived in the same place forever. Well, not quite forever, but 27 years. I've seen lots of changes, some good, some not so good. The street got paved, new houses and condo's built, kids grown and moved away. We'll skip listing any not so good things. All these years I've just been a tenant, renting all this time. A few things changed around the first of the year and it got me thinking of a change of my own.
Well, here it is. I put in a offer Thursday, they countered Friday and I accepted. This coming Thursday is home inspection day. I don't expect any issues because it's new. It could take a bit to close going through VA, maybe up to 45 days. Today I gave my landlady 60 days notice. Oh, did I tell you it's not in Anchorage? It's in Wasilla, just a rocks throw from Knik.
I'm excited and so is Macy. I'm a little nervous, but oh well. I'm already packing and making moving plans. It's a big move for me. I haven't been much on change since leaving the military. This is change.

A Litte More Frozen Than Expected

Last summer I went to Barbara Falls and it looked like this.
 Today it looked like this. I hiked out there with Erin and Macy to do some photography. I was hoping for more open water, but I guess with the single digits, that wasn't to be.
 Even though Erin was bundled up for the weather, it was pretty nippy.
It was pretty cool to see that someone had put Christmas tree bulbs in some of the pine trees along the trail there.
 And wreaths and other decorations on the bridge. The wreath next to Macy is a little hard to see because of the snow.
It was a good day. Too bad we didn't get the shots that we wanted, but there's always another time.
