We are doing it! We are going to leave and take a year off! I'm excited and nervous at the same time. There are so many details to work out! I can breathe easy knowing that all the hard work we put in now will be well worth it. We will be sailing in the Caribbean about a year from now; enjoying the blue water, warm white sand, green islands, music, food, people, and each other.

I'm super inspired today, so I made this video. Life is good.

About: We're going blue water sailing, but first there are things we need to do to get ready. We're here to share what we are doing to prepare for our trip. We hope to inspire those who might like to do the same and learn from those who have stories and lessons to contribute to us.
Extra: I make jewelry too! Sweet Nirvana Jewels was created out of a passion for beads and sailing. All profits are put in to Jamie and Kevin's boat fund, which supports the adventures they have together sailing the waves and racing the wind. http://www.etsy.com/shop/sweetnirvanajewels
