  • Happy Movember


    During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo's, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Once registered at www.movember.com, men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

    Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

    At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world for Movember.

    This cause is a great and fun way to promote men's health! If you want more information or want to check out some Mo's, visit www.movember.com!

  • The City of Lights - Anchorage

    We are headed north, way north... all the way to Alaska! Because Anchorage is in the dark most of the normal day lit hours in the winter, everyone puts up as many lights as they can to brighten up the city. Hence "The City of Lights" title was rightly given.


    This invitation is a lively twist on the traditional wedding invitation, The Anchorage offers a layout incorporating one large photo of the bride and groom, flanked by three smaller photos of the couple. Choose from among a variety of script fonts and the perfect background color to flaunt your fabulous photos!

    Chugach State Park

    Anchorage has Chugach State Park, the third-largest state park in the nation. Listed as one of America's Best Top 10 State Parks, the Chugach boasts 200 miles of year-round trails, more than 50 glaciers and great wildlife viewing. The half-million-acre park is rich in recreational opportunities, with some of Alaska's most accessible hiking, biking, camping, trail running, climbing, skiing and snowmobiling.





    If the great outdoors isn't really your thing, local brewers tap frothy favorites capturing the essence of Alaska – Polar Pale Ale, Arctic Rhino Coffee Porter, Sleeping Lady Fish On and BrewHouse Blonde, to name a few. Many local breweries have also have the perfect pairings for their ale lists, establishing a reputation as some of the finer restaurants and eateries in town.



    Dog Sledding

    The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race starts on the streets of downtown Anchorage on the first weekend of March. But that's just the beginning of adventures with Alaska's state sport. Hop on the runners and discover dog sledding year round. Even in summer, glaciers provide plenty of chances to explore one of Alaska's oldest methods oftransportation. Mush!
