The New Normal

May 11, 2015

When looking for a house to buy last Summer we knew two things – it had to either be on water or have a pool and it had to be move-in ready that would require no remodeling work. Obviously we suck with sticking with intentions because while we did find something on the water, it has been made apparent by now that it required a lot of work. Over the past nine months we have been so “house project focused” that I think we both started to forget why we bought this house in the first place. Until recently that is. Now that Summer is well on its way, the boat is in the backyard, the kayaks are only a walk down the yard away and the grill has been fired up several times [apparently too much because as we were hosting 15 people here this weekend it decided to rust out and not work, yaaaaaaay!] we have quickly remembered why water was a must. The past couple of weekends along with evenings scattered throughout the week we have been like a couple of fish living on the water. Except I don’t actually get in the water because I’m convinced dead bodies are floating in there but that’s another story for another day. And let me tell you, it has exceeded every bit of expectations that I ever had. I think I have said “how awesome is this?!” more than 12,000 times in the past 7 days. I am so thankful this season of life and I hope that I never take it for granted. Here’s a few glimpses of what life has looked like as of late…

And because every boat needs a captain….
Needless to say, if this blog becomes a little barren over the next couple of months it’s because I am still searching for wi-fi on the open seas 😉 
Hope you all had a great weekend!
