i think i finally figured out what her cryptic email address stands for! my guess is “look up at aurora in alaska.” she received her tickets to seattle, she’ll be visiting me the 20th - 23rd. she decided that she cannot visit anchorage during the summer (too expensive) so i’ll go instead. she wants to come to anchorage during Christmas. i was hoping she’d take that route, because christmas is just so unique and exciting in our family. matthew will turn 1, we’ll sit around playing games and making fun of Zack. it will be great.
