We, ok fine, I was SO devastated when the house we were supposed to inhabit in North Pole fell through. In a twisted LSAT logic problem kind of way, the town of North Pole, AK is 15 minutes South of Fairbanks, where the Hot Doctor’s hospital is located.
I was convinced that if I had to be tethered by a string to the edge of the world, that string may as well be a hilarious address like “The North Pole.”
When it became apparent our North Pole dream home wasn’t going to come to be, I may or may not have done things like lie on the kitchen floor for hours and mope around for days talking to anyone who would listen about how I was going to be homeless and stranded ,trudging through the arctic tundra in blizzards and darkness, with my two little frozen polar cubs and all of our earthly belongings in tow.
However, like most (maybe all?) of the things that I’ve been unequivocally convinced are going to ruin my entire existence, the twist of fate that kicked my would be candy-cane-stripped-booty outside North Pole City Limits turned out to be for the best. Why?
Because, there is next-to-nothing in The North Pole besides THE North Pole.
And so, for today, in the name of silver linings, the blessing on unanswered prayers, and the LIGHT at the end of the tunnel, I just HAVE to show you the next-to-nothing thing in the North Pole:
(and see you tomorrow with pics of THE North Pole – trust me – it’s awe inspiring!)
