Mark Twain said it best…

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain

While there is plenty to do prior to throwing off the bow lines, we’re leaving safe harbor to head for points south, we’re starting this blog to share and document our story of exploration, dreaming, and discovery.

You’re invited to read more about our story, our family and how we came to this decision. We also hope you’ll follow along with us on our journey, post comments and questions.  The scariest part of this trip is not the sailing, the storms, the weather or the ocean; but disconnecting from colleagues, friends, and family.  So please stay in touch…

    Looking forward to hearing about your new adventures. May you have fair winds and calm seas and, most importantly, remember to keep the dry side up and the wet side down. 😉

    So excited for all of you. Realizing that Becky isn’t a little kid running around KYC makes me realize that I am now a 60 yr old woman but I couldn’t be more thrilled for your little family as you embark on this once in a lifetime adventure. Fair winds & ENJOY!!

    I’m so excited for all of you!!! Although selfishly I will miss seeing you around the neighborhood! One of my favorite poems for you guys… “ Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.”
