I'm flashing us back to when I was 19, living in Alaska like a crazy hippie. Except I wasn't a hippie, but the pictures make me look like I was. These pictures were taken at the Girdwood Forest fair. If you're interested in seeing some pictures from Forest Fair's of the past, click here. Honestly, the Forest Fair was one of the coolest things about living in Alaska. Alaska truly is the last frontier. Imagine a bunch of people who just want to make their own way no matter what, and you've pretty much got a glimpse of what living there was like for me. My cousin Tom came to visit us during this time, so you can see him eating some "cookies" below.
And that's Sam, my sister. She came to live with me fresh out of high school at only 17! I'm such a responsible big sister taking care of her (yeah right). I miss Alaska sometimes.
