I know what cold winter weather feels like, being born and raised in Alaska I know how to dress for the Cold! We Alaskans know how to stay warm, mostly by wearing fur, down and wool. Growing up I spent a lot of time outdoors even if it was cold. As and adult I still crave being outdoors, but now staying warm must be functional and fashionable! Here are some Alaskan inspired parkas.
Growing up in Alaska spending time play in the snow while parents ice fish.
A bit older, maybe 5 but this time I have on my homemade Alaskan fur parka to keep warm.
Wearing my aunts full length parka, wishing I had my very own. Beautiful!
My son John, wearing a down snowsuit and me in my northface coat and fur headband while hiking.
A good friend wearing her cousin’s Athabascan Alaskan parka.
If you are in need of a good looking parka, fur, wool, faux fur or down parka, here are a few of my favorites!
As I think about this past year I have a lot of happy and accomplished feelings. I honestly feel like this has been one of my best years, as everything seemed to fall into place, with family, friendships and business decisions. I feel so much gratitude with how balanced this year turned out with love, my family, relationships, friendships, the blogging community and my ever so grateful clients.

Scoop Deck in Wells, Maine is like an adult ice cream dream come true with oh, are you ready for this, 72 flavors to choose from! Not only do they offer ‘old fashion’ ice cream that is oh so yummy, but they offer an old fashion feel good experience. The feeling you get when your there is that it’s ok to not take yourself serious at all, kinda like when you were a kid and everything was fun and easy. The Scoop Deck fills my tummy and mind with a smile, so much so that it can be addictive! The prices are right, and the scoops are ginormous and perfectly creamy, bursting with flavors that will bring you back to old summer days.
How much do you love their street sign!!
Oh boy, the decisions!
A clever sign posted to the right of the door~ take time to read it!
Maine = Lobster
I made the mistake of ordering a small… it was 2 scoops! oops!
Someday I will splurge and order the ‘six scoop’!
These messages around the “Scoop Deck” are what make this place a fun experience.
The ice cream descriptions. There are several old fashion and specialty flavors to choose from.
This bike is located to the left of the front steps. If you can’t decide then the descriptions are attached to this bike.
My favorite sign at the Scoop Deck!
If you are as inspired as much as we are by the Scoop Deck check out their website and if you get the chance, go! Open everyday, 11-11!
