Words to Live By


Such a good reminder. I am the perfect example of being the person who gets into a groove and becomes afraid of big changes. I constantly remind myself that the best things that have happened in my life have been out of my comfort zone. So stop being afraid and just jump! You never know where you’ll end up.

Looking forward.

Up in the Air


Flying. Now thats something I’m familiar with! I practically grew up in the back seat of our Cessna 170. As a baby, mom would stick my carseat in the back of the plane and teach a lesson. I have always felt so comfortable in the air, but I never thought I would have a time in my life that I would be able to dedicate to seriously learning.
The first thing people ask when I tell them my mom is a flight instructor is, “You have your license right?” Who isn’t smart enough to capitalize on that situation, right?! Well, in the last 26 years, the time has never been quite right. From high school activities, to college, to full time jobs,the schedules never really could match up – until now. With all those years flying from the right side, last night I was able to have my first lesson from the left seat! I have a lot of learning to do, but I am going to try my hardest to solo before Seth and I embark on our next adventure.
Over and out.

Train to Denali


Seth and I had a wonderful trip to Denali on the train this weekend! It was so relaxing to have 8 hrs just to spend enjoying scenery, reading books, chatting with the tourists and having cocktails. Another amazing trip for the books. More photos will be posted soon!

Biking to Hope

A few weekends ago the Voigt ladies took on another biking adventure! We originally planned on parking in Portage and biking the 50 miles to Hope and back the next day. Unfortunately, due to rain and wind, we had to alter our plans and we drove all the way to Hope instead – with a nice stop at Jack Sprat for lunch in Girdwood. From Hope we biked out to the Seward Hwy and back in the pouring rain. Although it was only a little over 20 miles, it felt like 40 with the rain and wind. We were soaked from head to toe 5 miles in.
We stayed at the Bowman’s Bear Creek Lodge – great dinner (included with the price), but the cabin was definitely rustic. You can’t expect more than a dry cabin in Hope. That evening I was able to expore Hope for the first time – ending up at the Seaview Bar to enjoy a drive and live music. The next day we were able to do some biking in the sun, which made up for all the rain. It’s really a beautiful ride from the Seward Hwy to Hope.

I can’t believe after living in Alaska for so long there are still so many places I have yet to visit. That just tells you how large Alaska really is!

Here are some photos that we took on our adventure. Enjoy!

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves, without any insistence that they satisfy you.”

Quote of the Day

“Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”

– Anthony Robbins
