I'm back in Utah again and I'm not sure exactly how I feel about it.  Returning home is always bitter sweet.  I love hanging out with my Mom and my sisters, working on projects and family dinners.  Yet I am also confronted by harsh reality that my family has changed and I have changed and I don't quite know how I fit in here.  I have recently come to the conclusion that I get along with my family a lot better when we don't live in the same state.  It is a sad reality but I have gotten so used to having my own space that I find that I don't really play well with others.  Turns out, I can be really mean to those I love  - and I hate that about myself.   

Alaska feels so far away, like it was only a dream.  I do miss it and the great friends that I met there (I do hope our paths cross again).  But it was time to move on - to new things - new people to meet - new places to explore.  


  1. Oh I am so planning on coming to see you this weekend -- maybe Sunday?

  2. Rachel - I've been thinking of you and Hannah.

    Absolutely, we'd all LOVE to see you. Sunday would be great!

  3. Sounds good -- I'll probably show up late afternoon evening -- is that ok? I'll call.

  4. awh magsie, remember sisters are like ladybugs, they are ladies and they bug each other. and i'm afraid the olson sisters are no exception, that is what sisters are best at!
    but i loved getting to spend some time with you at home before we both left. i'm bummed i never got to come visit you in alaska so i've got to visit in dc.
    i love you! and good luck with the job search!
