    You do look like you’re having a great time indeed! I’ve checked out your post and Amelia’s as well about the museum, and it does look like loads of fun. Would be interested in what the Science Annex would hold!

      Amelia and I are excited about the science annex and will likely be back to check it out. We are both total nerds and practically live for these things. Thank you for checking out our stuff, my wife and I really appreciate it! 🙂

    We had a fantastic time exploring the Fairbanks Museum! The exhibits and collections were fascinating to see, but I love this picture in particular because of the fact it was a demonstration of electrical engineering. After all, when I first met you, it was while you were working on a huge electrical system for a commercial building in New York City.

    Of course, it’s always inspiring to see a woman excelling in male-dominated fields. That project was an impressive feat, and I was immediately wowed by the great deal of skill and expertise required. No doubt your knowledge and experience in electrical engineering has been invaluable to us in remodeling our forever home in Vermont. I can’t wait for more exciting adventures together!

      As a woman, I feel that societal expectations and stereotypes can play a significant role in our decision-making when it comes to opportunities. The pressure to conform to traditional gender roles, to be nurturing and caretaking, can make it challenging to take risks and pursue opportunities outside of our comfort zone.

      In addition, there is often a lack of representation and inclusivity in certain fields, which can lead to feelings of imposter syndrome and a sense that we don’t belong or aren’t qualified. This can lead to missed opportunities, even if we are capable and deserving of them.

      Furthermore, women are often socialized to be modest and self-effacing, which can lead to a lack of self-confidence and a tendency to downplay our achievements. This can make it difficult to put ourselves out there and pursue opportunities that we feel may be beyond our reach.

      That being said, I believe it’s important for us as women to challenge these societal norms and take risks to pursue our goals and dreams. We must learn to trust in ourselves and our abilities, and not let fear or self-doubt hold us back. By doing so, we can break down the barriers that have limited us in the past and pave the way for future generations of women to succeed.

      Remember that I love you. 🙂
