|Andy, Lee and Mark – doing what they do best.|
This year, as we finish selling off our properties and prepping to sail away, we are focusing on the life we have here.
This is our Year of Yes.
This year we are focusing on our fun life and fantastic friends here in Savannah. Yes, we are looking forward to all of the adventures ahead – sailing away, exploring the coast of Florida, Alabama and Louisiana. And then finding our way over to the Caribbean islands. All of these exciting things are not so far away. But right here, right now, we are enjoying the present moments.
We started the year off right with a boat-load of family. And we have spent almost every weekend since then with old friends and even made a few new ones. This past weekend we had a birthday dinner with our daughter at a fantastic local restaurant (The Florence). Then spent Sunday planning an upcoming trip to Key West with one set of friends followed by some birthday cake and drinks with other friends.
|Magic Kingdom 2016 So. Many. Kids.|
This weekend we both headed off to Florida – but with different friends and in different cities. Mark headed down to Ocala for a weekend filled with mountain biking. I headed down to Orlando for an impromptu visit to The Magic Kingdom to help a friend fulfill her bday wish to hang with Mickey. (Who knew they don’t serve alcohol?! And there are kids EVERYWHERE.) We both said Yes to friends and making new memories. (Unfortunately we both said Yes to a cold, as well…)
We are going to continue to focus on the present while we prepare for the future. We have it pretty good here – and we don’t want to take it for granted. While we are not sure exactly when we are leaving, we want to make the most of the time we have. And that means more nights out, more chats on the beach, more group paddle boarding and more quality time with anyone who wants to hang. A year of more. A year of being present. And a maybe we’ll throw some boat projects in here and there as well.
