(blogging today from Huntsville, Alabama)
Today marks one week that I left Alaska for a long-awaited and much needed excursion down South. It has been a whirlwind of a trip so far, catching up with family and close friends, eating a ridiculous amount of Southern food, and marveling at the warm winter temperatures.
