I’ve taken well over a yearlong hiatus from writing about Alaska, and what a year it’s been. What a season of change! We welcomed our third child last month, a precious boy to join our twin girls! And we are on the brink of another huge adventure: my husband has been accepted into a two-year MBA graduate program, so in a couple months we are moving to North Carolina and adjusting to somewhere so incredibly different from Alaska but beautiful in its unique and charming way.
I shouldered more of the home responsibilities while my husband spent almost every spare moment outside work studying for months for the business school entrance exam. Once he got past that, I helped him research schools, and then he spent many months writing and perfecting applications. The girls and I sent him off to the East Coast for a week to interview at each of the three schools, and when all the applications were done and turned in, we waited. And waited.
