Just a quick one today

As you know, we try not to have too much food waste. Which means when we get green onions at the store, after we use the tops, we put the white parts with the roots in a cup of water so they can continue to […]

Rough Seas

The last couple of days have been rough. Actually, they have been downright hellish. So awful that’s it’s hard to even write it out cause I get frustrated with it all over again. But we learned some lessons. Always learning. Lesson 1. Leash the dog […]

The Gift of Minimalisim

The Gift of Minimalisim

This year, as we were contemplating what to get the kids for Easter, I had a conversation with my mother. I told her how we were considering alternatives to your average Easter baskets, because we don’t need more stuff on board (especially while still trying […]

The Problem with Plastics

The Problem with Plastics

Alright guys. We need to have a talk. And I am going to get a little bit hippie on you, but I’m ok with that, because this is important. Earth is dying. We are killing it. With our nonchalant attitude towards eco friendly stuff, we […]

Feeling Crafty

Feeling Crafty

In preparation for listing our house to sell, our awesome realtor, Perry, came over to recommend some tricks for staging to hopefully sell quicker and for more money. One of his recommendations was to put some art above our bed. We didn’t have art. But […]

As I write this, I am sitting on my closet floor, with piles of clothes sitting around me. Many of which I haven’t worn in the past 6 months, if ever. And yet, for some reason, I can’t seem to let go of them! Why […]

Q&A About Boat Living

Q&A About Boat Living

Since we told everyone¬†about our plans to move aboard, I have been bombarded with questions about how it all works. It’s been pretty interesting what people have asked about, so I thought I would make a blog post answering a few. “What do you do […]
