Leaving Alaska is always filled with mixed emotions. On one hand, I'm very excited to get home, and on the other I'm sad to leave the place I once called home. For many years I have struggled to make peace with Alaska. I think I am finally able to put that sadness behind me. Maybe not a 100%, but the majority of it no longer lingers. Now I am able to see this majestic place through my sons eyes. I look forward to having him grow up with such a cool place to call his families home. I look forward to making new memories and to cherish the old memories I have, even if they are bittersweet.
