Beginning of Summer Season
The weather is finally sunny (and somewhat warm). Patrick has left for a 2 week archaeology survey of petroglyphs (rock carvings) on the south end of the island and spring fever is in the air.
My birthday is tomorrow-the big 34! I celebrated with the crew casually Sunday night before everyone left...Gregg made a killer walnut/chocolate cake/pie and Dicky was able to celebrate with us before he returned to Maine to celebrate the real thing tomorrow on the 6th with Ella.
Today I got to welcome a Cinco De Mayo baby into the world-I was a doula for a long time (high school) friend and what a wonderful day it was. This is the 2nd high school friend I've been a doula for, and it definitely is a special experience. There is something about being there with long time childhood friends as they welcome their little ones to the world that gives me extra special "I LOVE KODIAK" warm fuzzies. I love living here. And as time goes on, I'm more and more proud of the fact that I was born and raised here. It really is a special place!
