Scott and I just got back from a two-week trip to Washington and Oregon where we visited many of our wonderful friends and family. We had an amazing trip, but are glad to be back in Anchorage, where the pace of life is slower, and life seems easier in general. We don’t have to structure our daily schedule around peak traffic times, there are fewer people competing for the same things, and the scenery is breathtaking.
On the first day back in Anchorage we drove around to replenish our supplies, and almost everywhere we went, we knew someone. The best part is that several people told us they needed to meet about a painting, or a stickers order, or help with graphics. That’s when we realized that our local community is the reason that we are able to survive on the income from our little art business. Without long-standing relationships in our home town where we have lived for over 20 years, our business wouldn’t be possible. So, thank you to all of you who choose to buy locally!!! That really does make a difference! We feel the love, Anchorage, and we can’t think of a better place to live and work!
