It's been a while!! The store is up and running and although we started off to a slow start, I think it's finally picking up. Last weekend I took my first trip out down to Seattle and Idaho. Thursday night I was able to meet up with some Get Hitched Give Hope peeps for a night of games and laughs. We had a blast!! Barbie was laughing so hard she was crying and all of us were on a massive sugar high!!! Friday I was off on a five hour drive to Moscow to visit Michelle. I sang so much on the way over, my voice was husky when I got there.... oh Ingrid Michaelson how I love to sing with you. Here are a few pics of us in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho (which means Heart of an awl, or as the french say, Coeur d'Alene is an insult and is very rude to say!)

It was so nice to get out of Skagway for the weekend. I'm already looking forward to my next trip out.... Ketchikan for the 4th of July!!!
All week we have had 70 plus weather. Last night we went out to the Point for a bbq and saw an Eagle up close and personal!!

Every year we make a few changes with this store. This year we took out candy bars (Twix, Snickers, etc) and chips and put in bulk candy!!!
I got excited about candy when I went to New York for my 30th birthday. I walked into a candy store owned by Dylan Lauren (Raulph Lauren's daughter). I thought, I want a candy store just like this one in Seattle!! Live year round, and have an unlimited supply of sugar at my hands at all time! hee hee So after I move on from Skagway Mining Co, that is my goal. But for the time being, I put in some delicious and oh so yummy candy at SMC. Marcos, my sweet and artistic friend in Spain, made the design on the bottom of the display!! It's so creative!
On the left you can see a waterfall of candy..
trees made of gum drops and a dog with a candy cane in his mouth!
The sun is a lollipop!
Matt came to help out for about a month or so here in Skagway. He's my new room mate.... he's got the couch! ha! We are having fun!! We watch a lot of movies, work during the day, take walks, and even went to Trivia night, where we were 2/2 but decided we were too smart and went home! Here's some pics of Matt on our walk the other night.
