Imagine living 20 minutes away from here:

Imagine sitting one sunny afternoon on a sandy beach and watching the windsurfers play in the dancing waves:

Imagine feeling the spray misting from this meeting of rock and wave, blown by a sea breeze across your face:

As I sit here and imagine all this I begin to feel my eyes tear up with overwhelming emotion because for me this will be my reality in four weeks.
There is no doubt I am currently living a rare and beautiful moment in my life; when it feels like the heavens are shifting the world around me in order to lay a wondrous path at my feet.

My time is now.
My time is here.
Together, Jeremy and I are seizing this moment and riding the wave of change out from our tent and into a new life filled with sunshine.
These events are nothing short of miraculous and I thank the spiritual path I follow for guiding me here.
