"Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they're always there."
Gretchen is one of those friends. Caring, bright, compassionate, focused, and thoughtful. She seeks to understand, listens deeply, not to mention she's one heckuva communicator. Since she lives in Anchorage and I live in Juneau, we go months without seeing each other face-to-face, though social media makes keeping in touch a lot easier. And when we do finally reconnect in the same city, it's like we don't miss a beat. We chat breathlessly, share stories, and laugh incessantly.
It's always a delight seeing Gretchen, and I was privileged to spend time with her today when she visited Juneau. We noshed on yummy Thai and Chinese cuisine at Canton House, but the real treat was catching up on each other's lives. I always walk away from our get-togethers inspired and energized. Thank you, Gretchen!
Not only does Gretchen love Anchorage, but she's a lovely person and truly loves life. Check out her lovely home on the web at http://www.gretchenlovesanchorage.com/.
