Where you are From

Dear JJ,

You are from one of the greatest places-- Alaska. It is where I was born, your dad was born, and many generations back.

Your great-grandfather (my dad's dad) - came to Alaska in the 1890's for the gold rush. He did some mining, and some fur trapping, and ran a roadhouse for a while.

I am seriously considering flying your mom to Alaska to have you born there (well, semi-serious - don't know if the airline would let your mom go there).

So, while you may be born in Arizona-- your home- is, and will always be- Alaska
