Almost 3 months in: holiday perspective

It's getting close to the end of the year....reflection time.

Although it might seem like we are on an eternal vacation, that's not the reality of this lifestyle we have chosen. 
Yes, there is no paid job to go to and everyday we can choose what to do, we get to see beautiful places from the comfort of our own boat/home, we meet wonderful people and make new friends and this list goes on. But, like every lifestyle you choose, there are trade-offs.  In our case, there is always boat projects to work on (really, every time we go out, some project that was not on the list, has to be added); simple grocery shopping or running an errand takes 3 times as long as we used to need; deciding where to go next is getting somewhat tiresome, even for an extreme planner as myself (off course, we can stay put, but we have not found a place yet where we would like to stay for a longer period). And...referring to the title of this post: It's the holidays and we miss seeing our family and friends ( we miss you even when it's not the holidays!).

But even given all this, the Bliss crew is finding her groove,and will be heading to the mainland of Mexico after Christmas for more adventures and new experiences.

Wishing you all Happy Holidays, and a wonderful start of 2015!

  3. Love what you are doing and enjoy your blog and pictures! We had a great surprise today, Tod... your mom and dad stopped in to see us after being over at Dan Kitson's home. They look wonderful and we had a fun time together. I let our son, James know of your blog and he looks in once and a while. My FB name is "Anne Lamb" but this is Margie & Andrew Flock... your cousins from Painesville, Ohio!
