I had the greatest birthday celebration in years [after mostly non-celebratory birthdays through my 40s], spending the weekend in Girdwood courtesy of Michele.  She was there for an annual Board of Directors retreat for the Anchorage International Film Festival.

We had a great time, including a dinner at Double Musky with the Film Festival honchos [where Dawnell Smith’s son sang me the best and most macabre birthday verse ever] — and I got to wander aimlessly in the afternoon and take photos.

Second time I’ve spent the night in Girdwood in a month.  The first was Trailer Art Center’s board retreat in late November.  Then again this Saturday and today for an office party.  Nice dinner last night and brunch today at the Raven Lodge.  And a little snowboarding (mostly, trying to re-master standing up and turning, but I’m going to try to go back at least three more times this season).  Shot a few photos around Girdwood and on the way back in the lovely afternoon sun.
