Cross Your Fingers

So I'm terribly sorry I have been so absent recently. With Project 365 and other posts. I need to be a better blogger.

Anyway there are have been other exciting and stressful things going on right now.

And since this is pretty much a sisterhood of bloggers I will tell you.

Travis and I are moving out.

Now no cheers quite yet.

We are in process of looking.

But we have recently found a yacht.

We are NOT crazy.

We live right by the water. Pudget Sound

Travis and I have talked about it a lot we decided that an apartment is not for us. We like to entertain and we believe that this boat will be one of the best means to do that.
There are of course other factors in our decsion making, but we won't go into the countless ones.

Anyway we looked at our dream yacht yesterday but it was full of dry rot. Which is really really bad for a big wood boat. We are surprised that it was even floating.

Travis and I decided that if we wanted a boat we wouldn't be able to get a wood boat. They have a life span. And the ones we can afford are in the 50's and 60's anything newer is in the millions. kind of crazy. 

We agreed on fiberglass. I mean its plastic... kind of hard for it rot. And we found one!
Its amazing.

It'd be perfect for just the two of us. 
Plus some company.
We figure that since we are young enough this will be a fun adventure. Something to look back on and think Wow we did this. We lived on a boat for a few years.
We are very excited
Travis is calling him today. 
Cross your fingers. 
We need to get out.
