    Congratulations on your award, you deserve it with all of the hard work you put it into your blog! It was nice to read some thing about you, we would also love to see Alaska – hopefully 2014 will be our year! And I am learning to knit and improving my crocheting skills to make prayer shawls for my church as well. It is always fun to see what we have in common with new friends! Patty
