Katie Conover a good friend from AK had a two day layover in LA to hang out and catch up this past Friday/Saturday. Katie and I worked together for 5 years in the Mat-Su Borough School District in Alaska. This year she's taking a year leave of absence and traveling around the world . . . literally. She has traveled a lot previously, lived and taught overseas a few years so she has a huge network of friends to visit and stay with. Last semester was primarily spent touring Europe. This semester she's heading back to Australia, New Zealand and all over Asia.
I took Friday off to soak in a couple days of adventure with her. I picked her up and we headed straight to the beach! Yes, all those Alaskans reading this, the beach is perfect in January. We didn't swim but we waded in the waves and layed out in the 70 degree weather. She made Ben and I stir fry that night that was AMAZING! Thanks for making time for a visit friend! Can't wait to see you back in Alaska next fall!
