Colt Busick 2-26, 6 lbs 14 oz

Oh man, I have not written in awhile! So much has happen, SO MUCH! Just spawned some more offspring (this time a BOY!) Colt Busick, born Feb 26th, 6 lbs 14 oz! Also helping to plan ANOTHER exciting Mini Maker Faire and lots and lots of more FABULOUS events! The date is set for Saturday, July 26th, 2014.  Also the next Alaska Hackathon is in the works! Absolutely love all the brainy peeps helping to make Alaska tech savvy. I have been honored to also work with Nilda’s Party Creations and LeSea Charters to share the importance of Google’s Business tools and develop user-friendly website.

Another gybo_bannerGet Your Business Online with Google class is schedule for April 22nd, 2014 at the Alaska Small Business Development Center in Anchorage. I had so much fun teaching the first one and had great feedback! So glad to come back and do another class! It has been a blessing to meet with so many business types and entrepreneurs.

Brown Bear  And yes, typical Alaskan Spring has reared it’s beautiful head with a foot of snow last week and massive melting on the first day of the equinox. This is going to make for an icey breakup but bring it on! What else comes with spring? Da Bears! They are definitely waking up this time of year. As much as I love Alaska and all it’s beauty, I am deathly afraid of bears. So for now we’ll be walking in the malls and not the parks.

With more sunshine I’m also hoping to get some seedlings planted and eventually become more “green.” A few years back I became obsessed and started over 5 bell pepper plants, 12 tomato plants, 6 varieties of herbs and a avocado tree (It’s now 6 feet tall)! Not planning on the veggie takeover this year but super happy to start a few leafy babies. Walking 4 feet to pick fresh produce is awesome while you’re cooking.

Happy Spring to you all! As we all crawl out of our respective dens and enjoy this new season I wish you much productivity, new life and incredible ventures!

Best wishes,

Alicia
