Moving On

Sunshine is no longer ours- it's a bittersweet time.
Jim has returned from Panama. We're happy for no more trips to such a far away land, at least, separated from each other. But we're also at a loss for words that this adventure could have been so much more. But at the same time, we've done more in the past couple years than most people do in a lifetime- living on a sailboat for 6 months and successfulling sailing her w/ our 3 children 850 miles down the Pacific Coast of Central America. How cool is that?!
Some day- we'll be on another adventure. Looking forward to seeing what paths we take, where life takes us, and what experiences we decide to pursue. Maybe it will even be something worth blogging about!
