I'm a little teapot, short and........wait, that's not it :)
For starters I'm kinda tall - 5'9 1/4" flatfooted, and yes that 1/4 of an inch counts!!!
I grew up in the country on 20 acres, closest town was 12 miles down the highway and had a population of 298. From 2 1/2 years old I was in a deer stand with my daddy and out doing beauty pageants with my mom. One of these days I'll post of picture of me posing w/ a deer my dad killed in my pageant dress. So from and early age I've lived somewhere along the line of "Tomboy Princess". Yes, it can happen. I can hunt, fish, and fire a pistol w/ deadly accuracy all while maintaining my femininity.
In February of 2011 I met my husband, it was a whirlwind romance type of a thing and we were married in Cabo on 9-10-11. See? He has no excuse to forget our anniversary. We bought our boat a few months after meeting and moved aboard immediately. He told me he had been cruising a year already and wanted that to be our future and I was ALL OVER IT.
I've always loved the water. Been in a pool or a lake every weekend I have had a chance since I could walk. The cruising lifestyle, getting away from the big city sounded like a dream. You may say cruising is not all sunshine and kittens, but I can guarantee it's better than sitting thru 2.5 hrs of commuting traffic a day.
So this blog will be my journey through us preparing to cruise and then us out on the seas. I hope you enjoy!
