We were very lucky that both our families get along and we all got together on Christmas Eve and had dinner together. After spending Christmas morning watching the grandchildren open their presents we drove to DH grandmothers house and spent time with her.
Of course we did some shopping, and all I can say is I do not miss traffic. I do not miss taking forever just to go a few miles. I do not miss crowds. I do miss family, I miss that certain smell that the south has. I miss the smells of the farm. I miss hearing the baying of dogs. Just the southern girl in me.
But let me tell you my heart took flight seeing the snow capped mountains, glaciers, and ocean. I do love Alaska. I love see mountains on one side and bay on the other as we drive here. This is one incredible place.
