Homer is where your heart is

Change is on the horizon. 2012 is looking to be quite a big year for me. For many months I've been toying with the idea of moving to be closer to Jedd. Believe it or not, a 4 hour commute to see your boyfriend gets old pretty quickly. I know, weird. So, after doing that for a year+, I've decided to take the plunge...I'M MOVING TO HOMER!! I'll be moving into this sweet Alaskan log cabin (i.e., Jedd's place), and am really excited about it. I have big plans for a garden, after work kayaking, and getting involved in the community. The move does require a bit of reshuffling of my life - I'm renting out my place in Anchorage, quitting my job, and starting to cobble together some way to make a living in Homer. Sure, it's a leap of faith, but isn't that what makes life worth living? And how awesome is it that I get to live here!!?? The Alaskan dream.

By the way, the satellite is useless. Ever since moving to AK I haven't had a television, and Jedd and I intend to keep it that way. The dish is from the previous owner and it's a b*tch to move. Maybe I'll turn it into a bird bath.
