The First of Many

I have just discovered blogging. I know, in today's day and age, how can I just now have discovered blogging? I could say, I'm pretty busy. But to be honest, I'm pretty lazy. I just haven't cared before. However, I have since viewed my sister-in-law's blog about her family and I was inspired.

My blog is named "AviationFamilyinAK" because I belong in an aviation family and I have made my home in Juneau, AK.

I married a third-generation pilot, being decended from a pilot myself, with several uncles and cousins on both sides of our family also being pilots. So, it's pretty safe to say that my life revolves around airplanes. I can fly, but I am not a pilot myself. My husband has trained me, but I do not hold a current medical and really only enjoy it when we both fly around together. I'll take the yoke at times on long flights to make it easier on him and it has been a challenge for me. I can say, "Yeah, I can do that," but I do not have the same skills as my husband.

I'll try not to let this blog be completely about airplanes. We do have interests outside of aviation, like kayaking and hiking. We have a dog, Noni, who bears a remarkable resemblance to ZZ-Top. Those will come in future posts.

I love discovering new pilot wife blogs... There are a few out there but not many that are that great in my opinion... Yours reads well-I'll look forward to updating regularly! I'm quite jealous that you fly yourself... I would love to ba able to, but there's so much that you have to keep your eye on at once, that the thought of being in control of a plane by myself is a scary prospect! :)
