Happy Monday everyone! Boy, it's been a whirlwind week. We spent a glorious week in Alaska on the Explorer of the Seas as a guest of Stampin' Up! on our annual incentive trip. We crammed so much fun into those 7 days. Here are just a few pictures of our adventures.
Here we are arriving into port at Skagway, Alaska.
We took a helicopter ride to Chillkat Glacier and breathtaking doesn't even begin to describe the beauty.
In addition to the gorgeous scenery, we were pampered beyond belief by Stampin' Up! Here are a few of our pillow gifts.
Had a bit of a sad end when we returned home. A dear friend lost her battle with cancer and went home to be with the Lord on Sunday. We will all miss her terribly but at least she is suffering no more. As I was thinking about a project for today's post, this “enjoy life” card seemed to fit the bill. We never know when our time on earth is over so I do want to enjoy life, just as my friend Tami did until cancer took her. It is indeed a precious privilege to be alive!
