The true 'Good Life'. I'm an amateur photographer, living in one of the most brutal, yet beautiful places on Earth, Alaska. I also raise goats, and the occasional pig or two. I will keep this updated with lots of photos. :)

Well, I haven't updated in awhile, no biggie. Blogging is weird I think. good way to share photos though without clogging up your Facebook friends' walls :P
This summer is now winding down to an end, it pretty much sucks this time of year until the fair starts. so let's reminiscence!

First major event was the trip to Soldotna! I had a blast, and needless to say the scenery was great. We went down for the rodeo! I'd never been to an Alaskan Rodeo and I enjoyed it, I think what was even better was the company.

Second would be the beginning of rabbits, I traded 3 breeding Satins and their litters for a meat goat, great deal! So, here begins the rabbitry! With the help of a very generous friend, I don't even house them. hmm, fair? no, not really. I'll have to start helping with my herd. ;) I also have 3 Purebred Flemish Giants, the sandy variety, from two reputable Alaskan breeders. X the two breeds (Satin / Flemish) you've got yourself some excellent meat rabbits (though Satins are fine by themselves). I could talk rabbits and goats all day here....

OK, now, I gotta say, I have some of the best friends ever. Here I get, all mushy and crap...naw, but y'all are awesome, jus' sayin ya know. They double as models, you kind of have to with a friend who always has a camera with her!

I've known Kayla since 2nd grade when I moved here from 'da bush'. She invited me to her birthday party when we met, and I ran home and told my mom some weird girl asked me to go to a party. yeah. I lived in a small town. haha. Anyway, pretty awesome. We're not the same at all, she's outgoing and crazy and I'm pretty calm usually. She listens to Rap and I listen to Country and rock, not sure HOW we've managed to stay friends for SO LONG (11 years! woot!) because we're polar opposites, but hey whatever! :D

WELL. I gotta go, but I thought this was a pretty good start to getting this thing together again. Like I said, blogging is weird.
