Never one to miss an opportunity to be cliche, I’d like to just talk about how February was a giant tease…
We had a couple days with highs of 68°F (20°C!) that had us all dreaming of flowers and “early spring” and other such fantasies…
Which of course makes for a good excuse to have an impromptu photo shoot… is *this* my good side?!? 🙂
But winter (that unpredictable lady) is having the last laugh…
Jon’s been busy with more winter boat projects… this time replacing our old cracked companionway board holders…
With new aluminum-plate backed ones. These guys should never break:
And finishing off an epic amount of paperwork (seriously, we picked “new horizons” as our theme for 2018 but maybe we should have just called it “the year of the paperwork”).
I don’t know if I’ve ever posted a picture of the Lagun Leg table?? Jon saw these on a Sail Life video, and they work so freaking well in Brio — much more adaptable than the old fixed table! I’ll have to take some better pics at some point.
Did I mention I officially became a US citizen?? With a passport and a team USA toque to prove it 🙂
My friends in Maine (side note: I have FRIENDS in MAINE. Leah of 2015 would be SO proud of this statement!) threw me an incredible baby shower, complete with these tear-wrenchingly thoughtful little candles (could also be pregnancy hormones, but I thought they were pretty special) 🙂
Speaking of friends, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that DiMillos has the most liveaboards we’ve ever experienced this winter, and we love it — it’s like living in a small town (“where everybody knows your name…”) while simultaneously living downtown while simultaneously living in the world’s smallest plastic-wrapped floating bubble. We feel special 😉
Of course that’s not to say that we don’t run away to my mom-in-law’s house for just about every serious snowstorm… as much as we love Brio, there’s something pretty amazing about being able to hide out in a house (with hot water and great storm-watching views!) for the worst of it…
Oh and pregnant life on a boat? It pretty much looks like this…
Except when it comes time to put real shoes on, then it looks like this:
(I married well 😉 )
Most Americans don’t know what a toque is. Lol.
Haha very good point Steph!! I usually remember to check for Canadian-isms but they still slip through sometimes 😛
I am so excited for you two. You look absolutely gorgeous, Leah. What an exciting time. May spring settle in quickly. I’m guessing it’s felt like a very long winter. ~Jessie
Thanks so much Jessie!! I currently feel like a whale living on a tiny sailboat, so I super appreciate the nice comment!! 🙂 How are you guys liking the new location?? Missing downtown life, or happy to be out on the bay a bit??
