Bucket List Idea #5 - Scuba Diving with Sharks

The Adventure of a Lifetime: Bush Flying in Alaska
The most spectacular parts of Alaska are only accessible by bush flying. There are no roads; there are no runways. Small villages dot the land here and there, but the natural world remains almost completely unspoiled. You fly a light single-engine propeller plane over snaking rivers, craggy peaks, and majestic glaciers. You see bears catching salmon, wolves on the move, and moose stripping bark from trees. You and your group are the only humans visible for hundreds of miles. Bush flying is an adventure like no other.

An ode to the apostrophe
The apostrophe has been giving writers trouble ever since it first appeared in English in the 16th century. In this century, stray apostrophes became so irksome in documents of the English town of Nottingham that its City Council instituted an “apostrophe box.” (Every time a staffer made an error with this curvy little mark, he or she had to put £1 into the box, with proceeds to go to charity.)

Pregnancy Photos for Couples
One of our favorite kinds of photo shoots to do is pregnancy photos. Couples always tell us they’re so glad they captured this moment, because they’re so busy in the moment with getting ready for the new baby that the whole experience becomes a blur in their memories. The pictures will always be there remind them of the excitement and anticipation of bringing a new baby into the world. And for us, it’s amazing to be there with a couple as they get ready to welcome their new child.
