Alaskan Cruise

Alaskan Cruise


Posted on Jun 27, 2006

Our cruise to Alaska was amazing!  We left Seattle on Sunday and returned to Seattle the following Sunday.  I think I’m sold on the idea of cruising.  The food is plentiful, the towns come to you and there is always something beautiful to see.  My husband wrote a really good post about our trip here. He talks about what we did each day.  So since that’s already done for me, I thought I would post a...

I’m off for a week cruise to Alaska.  I can’t believe it’s finally here.  We’ve been waiting for months and months.  We have almost finished packing and are now left with the endless checks and re-checks.  My husband can be a bit obsessive about these sorts of things.  Then again, we never seem to forget stuff, so it’s all good.  See you in a week! These flowers were part of...

Claudine Hellmuth’s Books


Posted on May 31, 2006

My husband and Mother-in-law got me these books and DVDS by Claudine Hellmuth for my Birthday.  I love Claudine’s work and really wanted to take her classes when she visits Portland in October.  Her classes are expensive, although I’m sure worth every penny.  When I found these books and DVDs, I decided this might be the better way to go.  I would highly recommend these books to anyone.  They are...
