Gretchen Loves Anchorage

May 7 - Issue #17 - View online
All things new, notable, and happening in Anchorage, AK!

This week I’ve pulled together a list of feel good stories, including a Good Samaritan righting a wrong, a video by the Anchorage Downtown Partnership featuring reasons to love downtown Anchorage, and a local runner rocking plaid…while earning a feature in Runners World.
Eventwise, this week is all about North x North, a series of activities following the Arctic Council Ministerial in Fairbanks. Attendees will head south to Anchorage to celebrate the Arctic and learn, exchange, and build. I’ll be there on Friday and hope to see some of you enjoying the festivities! 
I’m also introducing a new blog (you’re going to love this one!) and sharing a post from an old favorite. It’s going to be a full and fun week, Anchorage.  
Love,
Gretchen

There’s a new blog in town, and I’m thrilled to share it with all of you: Fooditect. Follow Michelle as she posts about two things she loves: food and architecture. I am VERY excited about this pairing as I’m somewhat of a super fan about both. Some words from Michelle about the process of designing and cooking:
“The designer is never finished, always looking to improvement, changes, and criticism. The next best high. I feel that way about food too. The cook is never done, always looking for the next best. But, like Architecture, the cooking process must come to an end so that people may enjoy. The mind however continues in a mad rush of processes. Winding through neural pathways, moving on to the next design challenge, but because of the functional aspects of food the process must come to an end.”

I haven’t written much over at Gretchen Loves Anchorage lately, so I’m sharing a post from my favorite Southeast AK blogger, Candice of You Know Juneau (check out her AK adventures - it’s so much fun to experience our state through her eyes!).
