283 days!

Sorry I haven't been posting, I can't believe how time flies! But...I have wonderful news!

Since I was in high school, I have dreamed of an Alaskan Cruise. When I was in Florida this summer, my sister-in-law suggested a family trip to Alaska. Did we want to go? Are you kidding?!? We may not be able to eat until then (good diet, right?), but we are going!! Both my brothers and their families, my parents and my family will leave for Alaska on June 1, 2007 for a 7 day cruise. I was so excited that when I was confirming everything I was crying. I'm such a dork.

Average temperatures in Chandler, Arizona in June? 68 - 104. Average temperatures in Juneau, Alaska in June? 46 - 62.

And you know what you have to wear when it is only 46 - 62 degrees? Sweaters!!! See, I knew my stash would come in handy!

    How cool! Joe wants to go on one, and so I may be doing something similar in the next couple years. I can't wait to read (in 300 days) how yours went!

    You will have a GREAT time! We did the Inland Cruise last month and totally enjoyed ourselves! Skeins in Juneau is a great shop just to the left as you walk off the cruise dock, and if you stop in Ketchikam, The Yarn and Bead shop to the right at the end of the pier is worth checking out.
