Sigóowu Yées Táakw! - here's to 2009!

Gu.aal kwshé laxéitl yee kát wugoodéek yá táakw tóonáx!
May success come your way throughout the year!

As much roller-coaster-y-ness as 2008 brought, it was still a great, exciting year. I pray that 2009 is better still for all of you - thanks for helping to make this year so great!

If you live in Anchorage, I hope you'll also be heading to a Kaladi Brothers tomorrow (Jan. 1). Each year on New Year's Day all of their profits - including hours the baristas donate - go a special cause or charity. This year it is going to Beyond Borders, an organization I recommend highly. Though an Anchorage-based organization focused on worldwide efforts, some of their major efforts in recent years has been on Rural Alaska. So go get a big cup o' joe to get over the New Year's hangover, and see you in 2009!

Happy New Year to you! Wish I knew how to say that in Yupik.... I'll do some research!

Here's to another great year of Real Alaska blogging!
