In Ten Years Time....

So much has happened in 10 years. It was 10 years ago that I moved back to Kodiak from Ithaca college in New York, met Patrick, got my first job with the school district and housesat for Barbara Rabold.

In high school I NEVER imagined coming back to Kodiak after college, and I'm so glad I did. It is a simple way of life here with incredible people. I remember when I first met Patrick, I thought, "Oh, he won't think anything of me because I"m just a small town Kodiak girl" ....little did I know that he LOVES the fact that I was born and raised here. And now our kids are too!

The top photo was taken by Ella, when we were dating early on. I've always loved the photo-it is such an action photo full of good energy. The bottom photo is of Patrick reading by the window here in our ktichen. For people who have been to our house, note the lack of trees on the cliff. Our cliff trees are VERY thick now and protect us from the winds! So cool to see such changes in only 10 years!

10 years - wow. Actually, truth be told, I knew you two were a done deal when Patrick was excited over the fact that you two wore the same size shoes. He thought being able to share ski boots was so great. LOL

By the way Zoya, I read an article in the paper recently about a Hospice Doula. I had never heard of this before. Sounds like an important but difficult job.

Vickie, Too funny! Especially that you remembered Patrick's enthusiasm about our similar shoe size!

You and Jenny were such a critical part of us meeting...thank you, thank you!

I was there the night you two met at Jenny Stevens' house. We could all see sparks flying right from the beginning. Glad you ended up as part of the Cliffside family as well. Now, could you take some squirrels off our hands?
