We’re a small family with a large imagination. We will need to achieve many goals before reaching our ultimate destination. Truth be told, we don’t even know where that is yet! The general idea is to set sail toward some tropical location and to enjoy the good life and these special times with our rapidly developing little baby girl. We know many hurdles lie ahead; the first one was to purchase a sailboat large enough to fit the three of us comfortably into. Having recently achieved this goal brings us to the second one — learn to sail her.
And will we succeed? It’s 98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed. We’re off to great places, we’re off and away. Our sailboat is waiting; let’s get on our way!
This blog will mainly serve as a family journal for us to look back on and for our friends and extended family to check out from time to time to see what we’ve been up to. Also, I have gained such a tremendous amount of insight from blogs and posts on various forums on the web that I want to take some time to give something back to my fellow travelers and adventurers out there.
I want this blog to be many things. My life has been full of incredible experiences and people, and gosh darn it, I want to be able to remember and reminisce about this stuff when I’m old(er) and gray(er). So, I’m pledging to write it down. Above that, I would also like to address some questions and advice that I have been given throughout my life – all those phrases like ‘do it while you’re young’ and ‘do before you have kids’ or even better ‘now that you have a baby, you’re going to have to settle down’ – I want to strive towards making daily life an adventure no matter my age or parental status.
So yes, this blog will be about learning to sail and all the adventures that go hand in hand with it, but it will also be peppered with stories about family life and how we are making our own way in this big old world. Life is about making choices. For better or worse, we have made the choice of a sailboat purchase… now let’s see where this watery path will lead us.
Can I get on the boom boom?
